Thanks to everyone who made it out to Originals in what turned out to be pretty awful weather, especially the last few days. I look forward to being there again next year, perhaps for the full show.
In fact, thanks are due to everyone who encourages good craftsmanship by purchasing art, crafts, goods and services from the makers. You're helping to keep skills alive!
The local CBC television station did a piece recently called "Made in Ottawa" featuring myself, a glass artist and a jeweller which you can view here:
Even though they spelled my name incorrectly and prompted me to talk about getting out my aggressions by slapping clay around.....I hope you enjoy it!

Every year I schlep most of my pots into the house, invite some artist friends over to display their works, bake some Christmas cookies and open up my home to neighbours, friends and customers--a great way to get in the mood for the holidays and do some Christmas shopping too!
This week I'll be sorting through my pots and discounting the ones that aren't quite up to snuff. There should be quite a good selection of these slightly flawed but still functional pots.
