Spring Sale and Exhibition May 16 to May 24 May 12 2015

Ahh computers..... I rather be making pots.... Well it is that time of the year when the bright green leaves are bursting forth, critters are stirring and we start to fire what we have made all Winter long. We have done three firings of the new work and the gallery is bursting with the fruits of our labour. So from May 16th to the 24th between 10:00 and 5:00 feel free to come out we would love to see you. Here are some pictures from our last few firings.

Cheers,

Fall Sale October 03 2014

Well it is that time of year again, time for our fall sale! We have just unloaded our kiln and are busy cleaning the pots, priceing and putting them in the gallery. So if you wish to venture out and enjoy one last trip whilst the leaves are still clinging to the trees then now is the time. In a week or two the yellows and oranges will give way to brown, then grey and the last of fall will have slipped away.

Starting October 4th from 10 to 5 until thanksgiving Monday. 

All our best

January.....weird weather..... January 27 2014

Well this month we did not get as much done as we would have liked, which we never seem to do. More grant writing, setting up our new web page, learning to navigate our new computers (ugh), getting firewood from our forest in hip deep snow shoveling said snow, fixing our temporary sheds after said snow collapsed them. In the last couple of weeks we have very warm weather along with crazy winds, a few days even got into the double digits melting about half of the snow. Within one month we have had record snow, record wind and record warm temperatures, lots of broken branches, a couple of fallen trees, and one close call.

Fallen tree right by the outhouse! Welcome to the new world weather.

Lately we have had a moose visit us, at our little place in the forest, nibbling on willows and saplings and sleeping down by the outhouse. Makes those late night trips a little more exciting for sure. Even one of our cats tried to stalk it, probably thought it was the biggest mouse he ever saw. Here are a couple of pictures of our forest visitor and hopefully our next post will have pictures of pots! Enjoy.


New Year and a New Website! January 08 2014

When we upgrade boy do we upgrade! Well it has been ten years since we have upgraded our trusty old computer but when the cat knocks it off a shelf and falls over 3' to the ground (not the first time!) and then once you stop gasping, turn it on and it works better than before.....you know it is time to upgrade;-)  So we decided to upgrade our computer, get high speed internet ,now that it is out here, got new iPads for out point of sales (instead of the old mechanical swipe) and revamped our web site.....Yay!

Now a lot of people have been asking if we sell online and now we do. It is still in its infancy and of course there is learning curve (What do you mean there is no START button??!!) but soon I am sure we will be saying "We should have done this earlier" 

So feel free to poke around, there lots to see and read (people still read don't they?) and by all means if you prefer seeing the work in person our gallery is still open year round or you can see it at the Downtown Farmers Market in the summer. 

A prosperous New Year to all......and now off to make some New Work!
