It's been a long year away from the studio with many other "art projects" on the go. Finally getting back to things. I am looking forward to bringing my pottery to the 3rd Annual Sydenham Artist Tour on November 1 & 2, 2014 from 12pm - 5pm each day. This year's show will be held in the newly renovated Studio Space at 222 Wellington St. upstairs from the Wallaceburg Wellness Centre.
Take one box of clay.... 15 young children and their daycare staff.... working on the potter's living room floor.... and you have the beginnings of a fine and "muddy" PA Day.
Today was a day off for many local elementary school kids. For those who needed to head to the daycare, they can only hope that there would be something special planned for them. Friends from Kathie's daycare in Dresden joined Mike today to learn how to make their first pinch pots. All variations including, "cups and saucers," bowls, and mugs were hand formed after some instruction time, and then everyone got to watch the professional in action at the pottery wheel. We can't wait to see how these pieces turn out after being glazed and fired. Thanks kids. You all did a great job.
