new work
by Liz Zlot Summerfield
at Crimson Laurel Gallery
in Bakersville, NC

A few reasons to run for the hills this weekend. Western North Carolina Hills, that is, mountain streams, potter's studios!
  1. pick up pots that you buy from me online on this Friday and get your shipping/handling refunded! ;-)
  2. Soda Chicks Annual Sale!
  3. See an exhibit at the Crimson Laurel Gallery of brand new work by fellow Bakersville potter Liz Zlot Summerfield. The opening reception for Liz is this Saturday night. The work is completely new and is the first that Liz has done since her recent illness. Bravo Liz!!
Come see us.

The Clay Club met last night and there was a great turnout for the "pot on the spot" critiques. Led by Linda McFarling, Shane Mickey, and myself, we were able to have a big group critique of about a dozen or so pieces. I hope we will continue this discussion as it's helpful for everyone to learn more about what we're trying to do with clay. So much of what we do is in solitude and inside of our own heads. This is a way for the group to consider the options and make suggestions. Twenty heads are sometimes better than one.
