Bancroft Summer Show

I'll be at this show once again on the week-end.  Also in Bancroft at the same time--the popular Rockhound Gemboree.  Lots of activities to take in--something for everyone!

Haliburton Tent City

Thanks to everyone who came out to make the Haliburton show such a pleasure to participate in.  Even stormy weather on Saturday couldn't keep folks away.  I'm discovering there are lots of nice B&B's in the area and we ate at a great restaurant in town that's under new management.  A few pics from the show....

Haliburton Art & Craft Festival

The pots are packed, now it's time to pack my bags and some food.  When the guys get home from work, we'll load up the truck and head back to cottage country, this time for the Haliburton Art & Craft Festival. Beautiful location for a summer show, bordering on a river and a lake.

Muskoka Arts and Crafts Festival this week-end

One more glaze firing tonight before packing up and heading off to Bracebridge later in the week for the Muskoka Arts and Crafts Festival.  I've heard good things about this show and the setting looks lovely in the midst of cottage country.  Looking forward to it!

Oval Bakers

Making lots of pots before the summer shows start.  Assembled some oval bakers yesterday.  I throw a ring for the side walls, roll out a slab for the bottom.  Usually I set the oval walls on top of the slab bottom overnight, cover it, then assemble the next day.  Handles are pulled, attached, then a variety of textured stamps are used on the sides--some geometric, some spiral.  The next day I trim the bottom & sponge clean.  Here's part of the process.
