Busy January!

Clean Wheel

Today was a cleaning day, I’ve been throwing with red clay most of the month. I cleaned the wheel, tools and bats so I can change to my whtie/light colored clays.

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.
