Craft show this Saturday at the Ramada Inn in Watertown! From 10 am to 4 pm. Stop in and say hi!
We are also getting ready for hopefully a busy summer. Making as much pottery as we can so that our booth sales are successful!
But on another note, I entered a raku sculpture in the Lake Placid Center for the Arts juried black and white show and it was accepted. Show will be up until March 23rd. If you happen to be in Lake Placid from now until then take a look. The sculpture is called “Serenity”.
Happy New Year everyone and at Brownell Pottery we are already looking forward to spring and warmth (Right now it is snowing and cold outside!). Last summer we worked on a series of oyas that we created for our gardens. Oya’s are ceramic terra cotta pots that are not glazed (we glazed the lids:) to allow water to seep through the clay into the surrounding ground. We found these pots successful for the hard to water mounds such as zucchini and pumpkins.
We are working hard to increase our stock so look in the near future for a variety of sized oyas that we will be selling on our web site and on etsy!
I think I have finally figured it out! How to combine glass and pottery! The leaf bowls and two coasters are made with clay, but when I glazed them I added glass. The glass is fused into the pottery, but it is not food safe. These small dishes are perfect for holding your trinkets!
