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)

See my class page here for all the details. Please contact me if you are interested in any of these workshops through my contact page here.

If you can’t come to any of my classes or workshops, 2018 will bring more video “Quick Pottery Lessons” on Youtube, Instagram and Facebook.

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!
