beautiful, functional pottery

The Holiday Sale in the studio is coming right up, and joining me will be some very talented potters and sculptors who have been (literally!) up to their elbows in clay and glazes to bring you beautiful and functional works of art for your home.
 Julie Stewart's gorgeous glazes evoke the sea,
and her serving and dining pieces are dishwasher safe and lead free.
Her stacked Raku "rock" lamps bring a rustic elegance to Portland's Craftsman homes.
 Courtney Wilson's modern, clean lined style...
and lastly, Elisabeth Cook Sullivan is a master animal sculptor, 
whose current passion is building carousels and horses.

Stay tuned for previews of some really original and cool art and functional crafts!

join us for the last Doodlefest of fall!

Saturday Night Doodlefest: Psychedelic Paisleys
Join us for another fun class in a series dedicated to jumpstarting your creative spirit.
In these workshops, artists and non-artists alike will learn how doodling and noodling around not only helps stimulate the creative juices, but how it has also been found to help us improve our concentration, listening and recall skills.
In this class, we'll teach you how to draw amazing, detailed paisleys.
We'll have sparkling cider, wine and goodies to nibble, too!
All materials provided, but feel free to bring your favorite doodle pen or pencil and sketchbook. No drawing experience required.

Saturday, November 7th           7 - 9 pm          cost: $25
