Next SHOP UPDATE on June 10th

shop update on Sunday, June 10th at 10am EDT

I am super excited to offer some of the work from my spring wood firing at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts.  Wood firing is truly a communal effort.  I fired with a group of seven other women over an intense 48 hours + period.  I had two shifts which include an overnight from 1am until 9am.   I'm not particularly a night person, however I loved watching the sun come up and hearing the birds singing.  The effects of the firing on each piece can be dazzling and disappointing.  I had some of both.  The process makes these works a bit more special.  I will also be offering work fired in my electric kiln, along with a beautiful selection of Patrick Moore's handmade wooden charcuterie boards.

new wood fired pieces + SHOP UPDATE in May

For the past several months I have been preparing for a wood firing that is coming up at the end of April.  I'll be firing in the Train Kiln at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts with a group of women.  This photo shows some of the work as it is drying and waiting to be bisqued.  I have been exploring new glazes for our cone 12 firing.  It will be very exciting to see the results when we unload the kiln!

Along with some of this work, I have been firing pieces in my electric kiln in preparation for our May SHOP UPDATE. Patrick has been busy making some gorgeous charcuterie and cheese boards in cherry, birch, maple, oak, locust and black walnut.  Please sign up for our mailing list for dates and times for our sales.  You can also follow us on Instagram for up to date information.  Happy Spring!  -Michele xo
