The weekend is upon me. Tonight was a great start to my three day annual Holiday Sale!
Here is a sampling of what you will find at the studio this weekend. Open Saturday 10-5, Sunday 10-4
Holiday shows are here, this weekend is Hosie and Sara’s… I’m all set for that one. Of course, as always I am just trying to fit a little more in for one more bisque firing by the end of the week! My Open Studio Holiday Sale is less than two weeks away, December 12, 13, 14!
Today the work table was very busy with making and attaching handles for batter bowls and brie bakers.
How does November slip in there so quickly? November has always been one of my favorite months of the year. I love the leaves beneath my feet and that sweet fragrance that emanates from them into the air with each step I take. I love Thanksgiving and the family gathering. Ahh… the family gathering, so special, and even more so as my birthday, or one of my two sisters birthdays inevitably seems to fall on Thanksgiving. Three of the six of us have birthdays the same week!
It has been ingrained in me that November is family time, and the time to transition, slow down, cozy in… fourteen years ago I had my first open studio/holiday sale… since then November has never been the same.
Don’t get me wrong I still love everything I mentioned above, now I’m just conflicted… 10-12 hour workdays just don’t equate with long walks, family time and cozying in… I still try… kinda like some people have their power naps, I have my power cozy.
So here is what I am gearing up for these next few weeks!
November 22nd & 23rd, The Makers Market at the Parlor Room. Northampton, MA
November 18th through December 14th, Wesleyan Potters 59th Annual Exhibit and Sale Middletown, CT
December 7th, Craft Show at Hosie & Sarah’s. Northampton, MA
And last but not least… my three day Open Studio/Holiday Sale! December 12th, 13th, 14th!
Goodies from the weekend firing. More to come!
It may be the curve of a handle, or the thumb-mark at the top of the handle. The sparkle of a glaze, or the subtle muted mattness of a glaze. It could be the way your lip touches the rim of a mug, or the way your finger fits in a two finger handle or four finger handle, as you sip your tea. There are a myriad of qualities that make up the details of your favorite piece of pottery.
Happy Pottery shopping this weekend at my Open Studio, Holiday Sale!
Waiting for two more kilns to finish firing for the Holiday Sale this weekend. Here are few goodies so far!
