Northwoods Fall Art Tour
Last friday, saturday & sunday was the Northwoods Fall Art Tour. My studio is one of 23 that participated in the 3 county area. With the economy in shambles no one expected much in the way of sales. From what I hear so far the results were mixed for the artists. So I consider myself really lucky that my turnout and sales were up from last year's fall tour. The best news of all... I sold the new sprigged platter (see post from Sept. 24th).
Here are some pics from the weekend.
Here I demonstrate how I attach feet to a small slab build dish.

Some fun returning tour visitors.

Glimpses inside my tiny gallery area.
A quick self portrait.
I demonstrated my scrafitto technique on small clay tiles.
Another tilemaker returns to see the finished project.
I had a record 16 people at once in my small 12' x 24' gallery/studio space.
