Fall into Winter 2007

Open Studio Tour - Yarmouth Thanksgiving Sale - Holiday Studio Sales
Galleries - Online Gifts - Remembering Potter

After two fabulous weeks of hard work at the anagama (wood) firing in Maine,
I've returned to find the view out of my studio windows looking much more like
winter's onset . . . the leaves have fallen and there's snow on Mount Washington,
leaving me to realize just how quickly these weeks before "holiday season" will
pass!  It's most definitely a time of reflection; after four years here in Eaton, I feel
even more certain that I'm right where I'm supposed to be.  I hope that you can
join me in the studio in the coming weeks to see the multitudes of new pots and
share in the spirit of shopping locally.  And now, for the news . . .

League of New Hampshire Craftsmen Open Their Studios!
For the 3rd year running, the League has organized this fantastic state-wide tour,
with countless craft studios open for your enjoyment and education around NH.  
In our area, enjoy my studio (for demonstrations and brand-new wood-fired
pottery) as well as that of glassblower friend and neighbor
Nathan Macomber,
and the beautifully renovated LNHC Gallery in North Conway.  
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, November 9th- 11th, from 10am - 5pm daily.  
Hope to see you!

5th Annual Yarmouth Thanksgiving Sale/Reunion
In my first year out of college, I started the tradition of the "Open Kitchen" sale,
which was literally my parents' kitchen spruced up with pots for holiday shopping
on Thanksgiving Weekend.  It's grown over the last 5 years to include a much
larger community of customers, neighbors, and friends . . . all in all, it's a good
time to visit and check out my new work.  This year, I'm pleased to be holding the
sale at 317 Main Street, the gorgeous community music center on the corner of
Main and Mill Streets, across from Sacred Heart Church.  (My folks moved and
ousted me from the usual location!)  Hope all you Portland-area folks can make it
over; feel free to bring visiting family, too.
Saturday, November 24th, 10am - 4pm
317 Main Street, Yarmouth, Maine

Holiday Studio Sales
While the first weekend of December will bring us the Local Color show in
North Conway
(more info), I'll be showcasing the best selection of my work right
here at the studio for the rest of December!
 I'm planning two weekends this
year, for your convenience, including a
kiln opening on Saturday, December 8th,
and a number of sale/discounted pieces.  And of course, you're always welcome to
give a call mid-week for an appointment- it's likely I'll have the flags
flying anyway . . . looking forward to it!
December 8th and 9th, 10am - 4pm
December 15th and 16th, 10am - 4pm

Galleries and Invitational Shows
I know many of you may prefer to do your holiday shopping in a more
"traditional" retail environment, and happily, there are plenty of great galleries to
meet your needs.  My work is available in locations around the state, including
Hanover, Littleton, Meredith, and North Conway.  In addition, I'm honored to
be a part of the ongoing Invitational Holiday Exhibition at the
Sharon Arts
Center Gallery in Peterborough, NH
, from November 16th to January 12th.  
Please support these great businesses!

Remembering Potter
While I hesitate to make what has traditionally been a "business" newsletter into
something more personal, it's most definitely a time of transition that seems
important to share . . . many of you may remember my little spotted dog, Potter,
announcing your arrival at the house and promptly greeting you in the studio.  
Sadly, Potter was diagnosed with lymphoma in August, and at just three and a
half years old, passed away in October.  He is sorely missed.  Your support and
friendship is appreciated even more these days . . . we all go through this thing
called "life" together.  :) Thank you ever so much for all your kindness and
