|Early Spring 2007
I'm pleased to say that it's been a creative, productive winter here at the Eaton
studio. The lack of snow in January and early February certainly made clay time
seem like less of a "skiing sacrifice," but even with a couple of solid snow storms,
I've been able to achieve a nice balance of work and play. Add to that an
incredible winter of live music at Job #2 (see below), and some "big adventure"
planning (more on that later), and this potter's life is very good. :)
I've been making some different, more experimental pots, and yet still filling the
shelves many of the favorites- lots of mugs, bowls, and some fun, new keepsake
jars with embedded "stones." You can see selected photos of my new work in the
online gallery, as well as in my League of NH Craftsmen representative galleries.
New Website Features
You may have noticed a few updates to the website over the last few weeks . . . in
addition to the fresh, new images, I have added a "Testimonials" section which
quotes enthusiastic friends/customers in their appreciation of my work. I hope
you'll check it out, and consider sending along some of your own musings and/or
photos of my pots in use in your home!
I am pleased to have my work featured at the Hanover League of NH Craftsmen
Gallery in April and May, for a show titled "Soft Clay, Small Stones: New Work."
(We've tentatively scheduled a reception for May 26th, from 1- 3pm.)
In addition, two of my newest pieces were included in the New Hampshire
Potters' Guild Biennial Exhibition, showing now through April 1st at the Sharon
Arts Center Fine Art Gallery space in Peterborough, NH. More info about the
show can be found at www.sharonarts.org.
I will also be exhibiting as part of the League of NH Craftsmen's 75th
Anniversary exhibition, "Celebrate," showing at Gallery 205 in Concord from
March 30th through June 8th- Happy Birthday to this great organization!
While pottery is Job #1, Job #2 is equally fabulous . . .
I am so enthused to continue my involvement with the Stone Mountain Arts
Center in neighboring Brownfield, Maine. Friend and idol Carol Noonan (yes,
read about what makes Carol my "american idol" in my first article for publication
in the upcoming WRENzine- more on that later) has me working hard as a
designer of mugs, painted signs, and t-shirts, as well as acting as hostess/stage
manager to countless incredible musicians. Recent favorites include Harry Manx,
Chris Smither, and Catie Curtis . . . and somehow the line-up only gets better . . .
Mary Chapin Carpenter, Cowboy Junkies, Bela Fleck, and Indigo Girls, among
many others. You have to come see a show to understand why I cannot shut up
about this inspirational place!
Seriously, do yourself a favor and check it out: www.stonemountainartscenter.com
The studio is open through the end of March by appointment only, and will be
closed for the muddy month of April. Mid- May and June will bring new spring
hours as well as an announcement about my Spring/Summer Studio Sale dates -
