The Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts is a wonderful place for clay artists and all sorts of other people in mid-coast Maine. The 9th of July (this Saturday) is their annual Salad Days fundraising event. A $30 donation gets you a handmade limited edition salad plate made by Gratia Brown, a grand buffet of salads made by Watershed's very own summer chefs. To add to the event, there is live music, a wood kiln unloading, and an invitational sale of work from past Watershed clay artists.
If you are in the area, please come! It is always a lively and fun event for the whole family, and you are supporting a great place.
I've been busting it in the studios to make fresh work for the sale. The kiln is cooling as I write these words - hopefully it'll be cool enough by tonight for me to unload and pack up again to bring to Watershed tomorrow!
A preview of the work pre-glazing:
There is also some new work on the Etsy shop. Plenty more will be going up there after this kiln opens: Shop on Etsy!
