In Studio & Online Goodness

The warmth and energy of spring has struck for me, and I hope for you too.  I will be away much of June (to teach at Penland) and July (to do a residency at Watershed and teach at the Appalachian Center for Crafts), so I am cranking away in my studio, as well as hoping my hubby will shoot pictures of my perennial garden while I’m away.

This is a brief update about what’s coming up for my work and studio prior to my travels:

Studio Sale
Saturday, May 22nd 10-5  and Sunday, May 23rd 11-4
My Spring Studio Show & Sale is just around the calendar corner, here at our home in Otter River, MA. This year it falls the weekend before Memorial weekend.  As usual, seconds will be available for purchase (come early!) as well as gallery-quality pieces.  Cash, check or Visa/MasterCard are welcome.  Visit my Contact page to drop me a note for directions. Please bring a friend, and we look forward to seeing you!

My online pottery store is open for your springtime gifting needs, and filled with new pots like stripe-y plates, house vase forms and of course, cups! Because of upcoming travel, I may be closing my stores from 6/10 – 7/24.  I apologize for the inconvenience, but wanted to let you know so you could shop in advance for gifts, and stay tuned soon after for new work to be posted.

“Salad Days” Pottery Sale at Watershed
If you happen to be in Maine, or would like a reason to be, I will be participating in the pottery sale at the Watershed Center for the Ceramics Arts in Newcastle, ME on Saturday, July 10th.  The sale is in conjunction with Salad Days, a fundraiser for this great ceramic center and residency studio where I will be one of many resident artists for two weeks also in July.  Check this link for more information.

If you happen to be in CO, l will soon have three pieces juried by Pete Pinnell in the Contemporary Clay Biennial at the Western Colorado Center for the Arts in Grand Junction, CO (5/14 – 6/26).

See more details about my exhibition and workshop schedule here.

DVD
On a different pottery note, the feedback from my Surface Decoration DVD continues to be a delight.  If you haven’t already, I hope you will check out the trailer and enthusiastic comments by viewers on my DVD page, which will also take you to the buy page.  Makers will see some new ideas in the DVD, and ceramics teachers/professors may be interested in buying, or having your school purchase it for your program and/or your library.  I appreciate your support!

  1. Hi Hadas! Yes! The plates were thrown on the potter’s wheel, trimmed, altered a little bit and then decorated with slips and underglazes. Thanks for checking in! Best wishes, Kristen

  2. Hi Kristen, First a big THANK YOU for the workshop in April in Kingston, RI.
    Your presentation was clear and thought out and fun.
    Love the video! Although I work at the opposite end of firing in majolica I see many ideas which can work for me. It’s terrific in combination with your workshop,but stands well on its own.
    BTW the trailer is what made me want to attend the workshop and buy the video.
    Many thanks to you and your dad for such fine work!
    Enjoy spring!…S_

  3. Thank you, S! RI was fun, and I really appreciate your thoughts on the day as well as those on the DVD. Happy potting in the springtime! Best, Kristen
