Hunting and gathering

I am SO excited. Tim and I went hunting today for winter berries and it was the first time I've found some. Every year before my holiday open house I gather greens, hemlock, pine, holly...and usually buy some winter berries from a florist. Tim and I found a swampy area with plenty for our display. It was a nice break in this beautiful 50 degree day...from the glazing marathon I've been running. By Tuesday I will have fired 5 kilns in 7 days...tonight is the fourth electric firing this week...two bisques, two glaze loads...and Tuesday will be the next firing of the gas kiln. I will unload the pots Thursday and load them into the car - warm and ready for our show. Join us in Wakefield for our 9th annual Deep Blue holiday open house with friends Marianne Snow and Mary Taggart. Saturday, December 5th from 10am-4pm. 4 Salem Street, Wakefield, MA.

Busy, busy...

Well - thanks to those of you who visited me at the Arts & Industry open house last weekend in Florence, MA. It was my first time doing that show and it was a big success. I also enjoyed the opening of the Cup Show at Artisan Gallery last Friday night and ran into lots of friends - including Lucy Fagella.
Now I'm quite busy in the studio finishing some smaller pieces for my next big gas firing and also glazing lots of dinnerware for orders. My next show will be my annual holiday open house with Marianne Snow and Mary Taggart in Wakefield, MA. Deep Blue is December 5th!

The holidays are just around the corner! My Greenfield showroom will be open December 8-22 for those who are local - and a $ donation to the Food Bank will get you 20% off any one item. Please call before you stop by - my December hours will be flexible on Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays or Fridays. 413-772-3141
