Madoc Rocks Coasters

We have just received another order in the store. The response has been fantastic. They are so beautiful...each set is one of a kind.
The unique patterns and colours in the rock are indications of the mineral diversity of the Madoc area, in Eastern Ontario, which is at the edge of the Canadian Shield. The marble is collected and trimmed to make the coasters unique art pieces. We sell them for $34.95 for a set of four.

Artwalk 2011...2nd Place Winners

The 7th Annual Artwalk in Yonge Lawrence Village is in it's last week. The judges have made their rounds and ardith one got 2nd place. Our artist, Debora Gordon, provided us with some absolutely stunning paintings (as you can see below). The combination of her work and our pottery was a success. I always enjoy this event. It's so much fun putting a window together.
If you're interested in purchasing any of her pieces there is the North Toronto Group of Artist Show and Sale on Saturday, November 5th at Blessed Sacrement Church.

Lou's demo fasinated everyone and it was great to be able to reconnect with staff from the past. Thanks to everyone who did come out and to those who sent conrats if they couldn't attend.

Sale is a Success!

Our Annual Pottery Sale was a great success. Even though we did not officially open till 8:30 am, customers showed up at 7:30...with coffee, of course. Great deals, great party on the street with Village Day and the rain held off till 1pm and only sprinkled for 1/2 an hour. There is still a small but good selection of items from Village Day for anyone who couldn't make it on Saturday. Come in and have a look.

Back from Montreal

Mugs by Ursula Sommerer

Serving Bowls by Ursula Sommerer

Bill and I just got back from Montreal. We picked up pottery from Eric Ciup, Helga Mader and Ursula Sommerer. The newest glaze by Eric is called oatmeal and it is combined with a lovely ash green glaze. Eric has promised to send some pictures asap. Ursula's new items include thrown tumblers and mugs (check out those gorgeous handles) plus serving bowls done in the lime and turquoise glazes.

What's new!

Barb Howe is sending some porcelain in the red glaze. It should be in the store by the middle of March. She has been working really hard on this and, as you can see by the pictures below, the red came out beautifully. There will not be a huge selection this time but hopefully she will be able to stabilize the glaze and once again produce it on a regular basis. Teapot
