Norfolk Potter's Guild Wood Firing :)

Some of the wonderful members of the Norfolk Potter's Guild, where my father and I are both proud members, came by and participated in one of our wood firings :) You can see some of the lovely work they produced on the very front table in the following photo. I hope everyone had a wonderful time and wasn't too tired after such a grueling (yet rewarding) process! :)

Norfolk Christmas Tour this Weekend

Well, it doesn't feel like it here in Japan, but Christmas is right around the corner!! Hopefully you're all getting a head start on your holiday list, but if you haven't, don't worry, we've got you covered. This weekend is the 3rd annual "Put a little Norfolk under your Tree" studio tour, featuring some of the best local artists in the Norfolk area. My father and sister April are busy getting ready, so if you have some time, please stop in this weekend and say hello. We'll also have some hot apple cider and goodies to share. This is our last big event of the season, so we hope you can drop in and see what we've been up to!

Studio Tour this weekend!

In the past week my father and I have crammed in more work than we can ever remember! Two wood firings, back to back, over just 6 days, and we hope we're ready for this weekends Norfolk Studio Tour! We'll be open all weekend and welcome everyone to come see the fruits of our labor, enjoy some snacks and also visit the many other wonderful artists in the Norfolk area :) We have a lot of new work and we will be opening the second firing on Saturday :) You can find all the information for the studio tour here, as well as see the other artists participating: http://www.norfolkstudiotour.com/
