Spring Studio Sale

I haven't had a home studio sale for a couple of years.  It used to be a pre-Christmas tradition, but since I've added more shows to my schedule at that time of year, there hasn't been time.  And I miss it!  Also, things are piling up in the studio--I need an excuse to do a thorough clean-up.  There will be lots of bargains to be had, so I can make room for new pieces.  We'll set up a tent in the backyard next to the studio, with room to mingle (or stay dry, as the case may be).  And, of course, refreshments.

Ottawa Guild of Potters Exhibition

This year the potter's guild spring exhibition was juried by well respected, long time Ottawa area potter Leta Cormier.  I was pleased that two of my pieces were included in the grouping of about 25 pieces.  By the end of the week-end they were both sold!  It's always encouraging when trying new ideas, by stretching yourself artistically or technically, that eyes and hands other than your own can also appreciate the sentiment that went into the making.  It was lovely to meet one of the purchasers, apparently a long time collector.  Nice to know they've found new homes.

Ottawa Guild of Potters Spring Sale and Exhibition

Coming up in two short weeks....

ORIGINALS the Spring Show

After the fact....this is the show that was last week-end.  It's always nice to get new pots out there--very nice response to the new bowls, vases and urns.
