I’m excited to once again have a gift shop where my pottery can be displayed and purchased in Downtown Trail,  BC. My pottery can be found in Ye  Olde Flower Shoppe on Spokane St.

Bowls are always a useful gift.

I’ve been busy getting my pots out to the various stores and galleries in the Kootenays. I have pots at “Yes Please” in downtown Castlegar, “Kootenay Gallery”  Castlegar across  from the airport, “Unwind, More than a Yarn Store” in Castlegar (Dairy Queen, Home Hardware mall)  and “Gallery 2” in Grandforks.

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….

Glazing

I’ve started glazing and loading the kiln.  I have a couple of bowls that I’m trying a reglaze on. I posted about my green glaze, well, I’m trying to reglaze the lighter part of the bowl, we’ll see how it turns out. Also, the white one with the blue splashes is too washed out, so I’m firing it in a different part of the kiln to see if it’ll change it…I’ll let you know. Four more shelves to go…. IMG_5857
