The show at the Guild Shop in Toronto has wound down. This was a very successful show although at first it was not encouraging. Jane and I sold 12 plate sets (a plate set is a plate on a charger) and two salad bowl sets (a wooden salad bowl and 4 stoneware side dishes).
The plate sets were special in that the wood for the chargers came from the bottom of Georgian Bay. The story of that wood was written on the bottom of the chargers.
The show called "Harvest", at the new Headwaters Arts Gallery, opens this Friday, September 13. I have 4 pieces in it including 3 of my NICHE Award finalists from the years 2009, 2010 and 2011. This event runs for about a month and coincides with the Headwaters Arts Festival. If you are in the Alton - Orangeville area of Ontario, do take some time to visit these happenings.
Later this fall I will have my work in a new (for me) gallery in Kingston, Ontario, called Kingston Glass Studio & Gallery. The Clay With Wood collaborative bowl sets will be there and later some of my chargers and stick vases.
Look for more information on the Galleries page of this website. This info will be up in about a month's time.
Now I have to get back to work. It seems that the older I get, the busier I am. No complaints, just strange how it all works out.
Until next time...
