'tis the season

40 pounds of clay in 24 hours isn't so bad after not throwing for a few months!  Between recovering from wedding planning and getting things in order for Studio 550, my family's community art center in downtown Manchester, NH, life has been full!

But no more excuses. I'm making new work to show at the Downtown Manchester's first ever Holiday Market at 1000 Elm Street on Dec 1, 8, 15, & 22 from 10-5pm. There was such a strong demand for this that there is a wait list! The quality of artisans, bakers, and craftspeople will be stunning. 

I will share booth #23 with Studio 550.  There will be a raffle for a free Studio 550 membership, Studio 550 gift cards, ceramic art, and who knows what else!

Come visit!

Here is my most recent submission from Jo Shields, a NH resident who makes stunning handmade jewelery!  Jo, Esina Navarro and I just recently did a demo/craft show together at the Artstream Gallery in Rochester, NH.  Esina makes hand carved and decorated walking sticks and crocheted pieces for your winter warmth.  My favorite is her ingenious sushi scarves! 

Much to my delight, Jo bought this little dish at the end of the day and put it right to use holding her business cards! I love it when my pots get used!
