This angel figure, created by a very talented Polish clay sculptor,
Margaret Wozniak, was created in 2000. Around the figure's
robe are little sketches that evoke the artist's adopted home,
New York City-a yellow cab, various buildings, including the
twin towers.

As I take it out each year, I reflect back to a more innocent time.
She traded it for one of my large salad bowls, at a craft sale held
at a studio a couple of blocks away from the World Trade Center.

We have just ended eight years of very dark times in our nation.

Let us all look forward to the coming year and those to follow, with raised hopes ushered in by
positive changes!

I've come to think that the annual requisite potter's
"home sale" has become a way of putting it all out there
to see what I've done over the past year, and hopefully point
to a direction for the coming year as well.

I scheduled it for only one day, and was nervous about
the economic climate, but in the end, I sold more than
last year, and had a lot of first time visitors.

Last weekend

The bitter cold weather last weekend served as a reminder that the holidays are at hand.

The opening was very well attended!

It's that time again;

This year, Lisa has gathered a pretty

varied selection of work, including

wood-fired pots, crystalline glaze

work, and some mixed-media figures,

along with work by in-house instructors.

Jewelry and knitted work will also be featured. All work is locally made!

The show opens today, November 21, with an opening reception from 5-8pm.

It will remain open through November 30 (closed Thanksgiving day).

I will post some shots of the show etc., later this weekend.
