Hot out of the kiln

I did a glaze firing on sunday that included the pots from the previous posts. Here they are in their finished state.

Today I took these pots and many others to the co-op gallery I belong to in Boulder Junction Wisconsin. The Studio Gallery is in it's 15th season as an artist run and operated gallery. The tiny gallery is housed in an old railroad wash house cabin behind The Outdoorsman restaurant in downtown Boulder Junction. This season we have 11 artists working in a variety of media. Today some of the artists got together to clean and hang the gallery for our season. We are open 4 days a week staring May 22 through October 10th.

The Studio Gallery is hosting 2 artist demo weekends in conjunction with Artists Interactive— a program to promote arts related tourism in Wisconsin's north woods. Our first demo weekend is May 29, 30 & 31st. Stay tuned for new photos and more about The Studio Gallery at the beginning of June.

Everything kicks into high gear here now with Memorial Day on our heals. I'll be working in the studio and posting more often with new pots and show photos. Here are a few more new pieces that I liked from the recent firing.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
