It has been a crazy, busy, productive spring and now it’s the first day of summer; the shortest night of the year. Through it all I have been highly productive and it will continue until Sunday, the last day of my 6th Annual Summer Sale.
Something new this year: Pottery tours on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. What does that entail? Well, I will be making pieces on the potter’s wheel and be able to show you how a lump of clay gets from that wet lump on the wheel head to a finished piece! So on Friday I will be busy making pieces that I can cut in half to show proper wall thickness, pieces that I can trim to show you how a proper foot ring is made and the equipment I use to make it, and pieces onto which I can attach a handle. Fun! Fun! Fun! And educational!
I’ll also be signing up students for summer courses this coming weekend, so if you ever wanted to try pottery, even on a casual basis, you can, right here at my little studio in Mayo, QC.
The sale begins on Friday, June 22nd and runs until Sunday, June 24th. 10 – 6 each day. Tours at 2 p.m. on Sat. & Sun only.
By the way, this is the only sale at which I actually slash prices of old stock to move it out of the shop and get my 2nds out too. 2nds are pieces with slight imperfections.
The kiln is cooling now and there are many new pieces to be fondled and gazed upon and purchased.
I hope you will take some time this lovely summer weekend to come out and see my work. There’s never an obligation to make a purchase, but in case you want to, there really is something for everyone. Prices start at $5 and there are many affordable pieces here for your pottery collection.
If you are a potter you might want to consider taking advantage of the 2 p.m. tours. You never know what you might learn that you never thought of before or that you weren’t taught by your teacher(s).
Looking forward to seeing you at The Pottery!

How are your weekend open houses going? What a great idea – I’d love to watch you work. Have a wonderful summer in the pottery!
The pottery demo was just for the summer sale. If I had more people coming by on weekends then I might make the demos something I do every weekend. One day soon I will get a video of myself working at the potters’ wheel up on this blog!
