A new year is here. I am excited to get back in the studio after the busy holiday season of shows and sales.
My winter months at the studio consist of re-stocking my line of urns, and hopefully making some new biodegradable urns. I am also filling orders from the holiday sales.
If you are not familiar with my line of cremation urns here are a couple of my favorites from 2017! The first is a biodegradable urn made of paper/clay/paint. The second photo is a faceted blue keepsake urn. If you would like to see more visit my urn shop page here.
After the urns and holiday orders are finished, I begin to make pots for the Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail. The 14th annual Pottery Trail is the weekend of April 28th-29th. The Trail is a self-guided driving tour of clay studios in western Massachusetts. This year there will be 13 guests in addition to the 9 potters that will welcome visitors to their studios. Visit our website here. I am happy to announce that my guest this year is Martha Grover from Bethel, Maine. You can visit her website here.
Aside from making pots I will continue to teach winter and spring classes at my studio. See the class page here.
This new year will bring some new workshops!
A five day workshop this June 11th-15th at Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill in Cape Cod.
And back by popular demand… I will be giving a five day workshop on Pouring Vessels at my studio, the week of August, 20th -24th!!
I am also adding 3 weekend workshops…
- June 2-3, 2018 Wheel Throwing Basics: (Beginners and Intermediate)
- July 28-29, 2018 Wheel Throwing: Making Teapots (Advanced Level)
- October 13-14, 2018 Wheel Throwing: Learning to Make Lids (Intermediate and Advanced)
In 2017 I made my first full length instructional video, “Making Ceramic Spoons on the Potters Wheel”. This instructional video is just like taking a class with me. It is available for unlimited streaming for $29 here.
By the end of 2018 I hope to have a full length instructional video available for streaming called, “Learning to Make Lidded Forms on the Potters Wheel”.
Happy New Year to all!
