Spring Sales

So we've been quite busy, participating in two spring Guild sales last weekend at both the Norfolk Potter's Guild sale and the Brantford Potter's Guild sale, and here are two nice articles, one with a photo of me, showing those events.

This coming weekend we have the pleasure of being a part of the Hamilton Potter's Guild Spring Sale, which is the largest one we know of. Melissa Schooley, another local potter in the Norfolk area is the featured artist and her work is truly spectacular. Here are all the details: http://www.hamiltonpotters.ca/hamilton/sales/spring-sale/

 

Hope to see you there,

Proud to be a part of the Hamilton Biennial Gallery Show

As I mentioned in our last post, my father and I submitted 6 pieces for the Hamilton Potter's guild Biennial Show at the Carnegie Gallery in Dundas, Ontario. We're very proud to say that 3 of the pieces, a large jar and plate by Joseph, and my elephants at the beach piece were all selected. It's quite an honour since over 140 pieces were submitted by artists all over the Hamilton region, and only 50 were selected. What's really wonderful is seeing the wide range of talent and skill, with everything from gorgeous wall mounted pieces, sculptures and functional work displayed. I was fortunate enough to be awarded the Dundas Valley School of Arts award, and was even more pleased by how many people enjoyed my piece and found it fun and refreshing. If you have a chance, stop by the gallery and have a look at all the pieces on display. The Carnegie Gallery is one of the finest galleries in Ontario. Also, our close friends and fellow potters in the Norfolk area, Melissa Schooley and Anne Armstrong, also had work selected, and Melissa's beautiful large plate also won an award!
