Lakeside Pottery

Bill and I just got back from Niagara-on-the-Lake to pick up an order of pottery by Ron and Barb Zimmerman. We have a great selection of the popular dark blue glaze. The berry bowls pictured above come in all their glazes.

Hand-blown Glass from Quebec City

It's been a very busy July. We went to Quebec City for a holiday and chanced on a glass blowing studio in the heart of the Old City. The master glass-blower is Jean Vallieres. We have just received the glass we picked out. It is handblown and has a very liquid look and feel to it. We hope our customers will appreciate the work involved. It is very different from the glass we carry by Susan Taylor-Stevenson and will give you several options if glass is your choice.
