Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail
The studio is buzzing with work being made for the Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail! Our 15th annual tour is April 27th-28th, 2019.
The annual Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail is a tour of nine studios with over 20 nationally recognized potters. Easily reached from Boston, Hartford, and the Albany area, the free, self-guided tour winds along the beautiful back roads and scenic historic towns of the Asparagus Valley, a local name for the upper Connecticut River valley of western Massachusetts. The Pottery Trail celebrates the rich agricultural history and cultural vitality of the area, as well as the longstanding connection between pottery and food.
My studio is on the north end of the tour in Greenfield, MA., one of the five stops in Franklin county. Come for a visit, watch pottery being made outside in the tent, even take a try at the wheel. My advanced pottery students will guide you each step of the way. When you enter the studio I will greet you and show you around the studio. There will be many, many new pots for purchase. I make very useful pottery for the kitchen, like citrus juicers, berry bowls, asparagus trays, butter keepers, oil cruets, and salt cellars. I've made lots of bowls of all sizes for the table, and lots of mugs for your morning cuppa. To celebrate the season of spring I will have vases of all sizes, from the tiniest little posey vases to large vases that hold sunflowers! I will also have my line of cremation urns for pets and people available. Many urns that are new and not yet on my website. Check here to see my line of cremation urns.
Each of the 9 potters will have at least one invited guest potter. I am so happy to have Steve Théberge with me this year. Steve is a potter from western Massachusetts. He makes stoneware pottery intended for daily service on the table, shelf, or altar. Take a look at his work here.
