We went to Montreal this weekend to pick up two orders. Both Eric Ciup and Helga Mader have been doing pottery for us for many years...close to twenty for Eric. The new persimmon glaze (one of 4 done by Eric) always sells out quickly. Helga does two glazes for us and the bowl below is an example of her "Oka". The orders are unpacked and on display now, ready for you to see and enjoy.
Last week we received an order from Barbara Howe and there was an excellant selection of her "copper red" glaze. For anyone keeping track of this glaze, it has proved to be very hard for Barbara to get consistantly. Although we are very pleased to have it in the store right now there are no guarantees that we will get more in the future. So, if this is one of your favourites, don't hesitate. Come on in and have a look!

Last Cottage Life Show

Bill and I have decided to give up the Cottage Life Shows. We have been doing them for eight years now. The setting up and working of the shows has just become too physically demanding.

It's time for us to say good-bye to the wonderful group of people who manage both shows so well. We could not have asked for a better relationship. They not only saw to any problems immediately but were able to bring in both a great and knowledgable crowd. We will miss the staff, wish them well and hope that all the customers we met through the shows will come to the shop when they are in town.
