Holiday Studio Sale

Kristen Kieffer Ceramics

I’m excited to invite my fellow New Englanders to swing by my studio for some brownies and good deals before the snow begins to fall here in north central Massachusetts. It’s a perfect opportunity to shop for holiday gifts to give, as well as some rather wonderful ‘aesthetic’ and ‘minorly flawed’ seconds to save for yourself.

Kieffer Ceramics Studio Sale
Saturday, November 7th  10 – 5 &
Sunday, November 8th 11 – 4

We are just a couple miles from a local cheese shop and chocolatier, and about an hour each from Framingham, Northampton, and Worcester, MA as well as, Keene, NH and Brattleboro, VT. We live on a busy road, so parking is best in our driveway or on the opposite side of the street. Cash preferred, checks and credit cards accepted. Drop me an email if you have questions or would like more info, KiefferCeramics@gmail.com.

I was away at the Bray last May, so it’s been two years since my last springtime event, and I’m excited to invite my fellow New Englanders to swing by for some brownies and good deals. (There’s limited availability of gallery-quality firsts.)

I will be a guest artist at this year’s Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail, a self-guided driving tour of clay studios in central-western Massachusetts (the northern I-91 corridor). This year there will be eight guests in addition to the nine potters who will welcome visitors to their studios. My pots and I will be guesting at Francine Ozereko’s studio in Pelham, MA.

9th Annual Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail

10 am – 5 pm

2013’s roster of potters includes: Hayne Bayless and Sam Taylor at Tom White’s studio; Lucy Fagella; Stephen Earp; Todd Wahlstrom at Mary Barringer’s studio; Dan Bellow at Molly Cantor’s studio; Mara Superior at Donna McGee’s studio; Kaleidoscope Pottery at James Guggina’s studio; Adero Willard at Tiffany Hilton’s studio; and me at Francine’s studio.

Visit the AVPT page on Facebook for great studio pix, and the AVPT website for studio maps and more details. Come on out, New Englanders!

Studio Visit

 Bring some handmade elegance
home for the holidays!

Fall / Holiday Studio Sale
Saturday, November 3rd 10 – 5
 Sunday, November 4th *11 – 4
* Don’t forget to *fall back*
for Daylight Savings!

.
My show and sale includes gallery-quality pottery as well as “aesthetic” and “minorly flawed” seconds. Early birds claim the best finds, so arrive early and bring friends!

Cash preferred or checks ONLY.

It doesn’t get much better than visiting an artist in their creative space to buy something you love (to look at and use), which in turn shows support for the artist, your community, and handmade. I open up my studio and our home twice a year (early November and mid-May) for my modest studio sales. I’m always so appreciative that dedicated folks make the effort to visit, peruse the shelves, and find a couple prizes for themselves, family, or friends before heading out to the cheese shop down the road. It’s a lovely exchange.

The beautiful yellows and golds that were still on the trees Sunday, are now on the ground from Storm Sandy, but it’s still a pretty drive our way. We are located in Templeton, MA, about an hour from Framingham, Northampton, and Worcester, MA as well as, Keene, NH and Brattleboro, VT. Nothing in New England is terribly far away.

Sale info is also available on my Facebook events page, and you can drop me an email if you have questions, KiefferCeramics@gmail.com. We’d love to see you!
