Welcome 2020!

This morning, I’m looking at 2020. I continue to have my pottery available in various galleries and gift shops in the Kootenays. “Yes Please” in downtown Castlegar carries a good variety of my pots, “Unwind, More Than a Yarn Store”, has a small selection, “Kootenay Gallery”, located by the Castlegar AirPort, is getting ready for their upcoming fund raiser, “Soup For the Cultured Soul” and I will be providing soup  bowls and some new work for this event. I also have pottery in “Gallery 2” in Grand Forks. In Downtown Trail, I have pottery at “Ye Olde Flower Shoppe” on Spokane St.

I’m looking forward to once again being at the “Kootenay Festival” in July, in Castlegar and after a 2 year break, participating in the “Columbia Basin Culture Tour” in August, and holding my 2nd Annual Christmas Open House in Dec., yes I’m already thinking about December.

August

We’re halfway through the summer and the temperature is HOT. I’ve taken a break from throwing and I’m working on cleaning and organizing my studio. I always seem to be cleaning and organizing it. Here are a few photos  of  some of the pots in my studio….
