I am very happy and thankful to be back to living and working in Buena Vista, Colorado this summer. I packed up at Anderson Ranch and brought all my pieces over the pass to sell at the farmers markets in Salida and Buena Vista. Last year was a success so I am crossing my fingers that this year will be too. It is sometimes difficult to explain to market customers and passerby's what functional wood fire ceramics is. Some people have no idea that people still make cups and bowls by hand. Some people think that there is no way for someone to reach 2400 degrees in a kiln with only wood, especially not a girl! So needless to say, I am hopefully ready to have whatever conversation is thrown my way. There are always a great number of people that do understand and appreciate handmade objects, and to you guys, thank you for making it all worth it!
The Buena Vista market isn't on the lush green grass but it is next to the only stop light in town, allowing many unexpected customers. People from all over the U.S. and world travel to Buena Vista so it is great to talk with people that have many different backgrounds and understandings of ceramics. Thanks again BV!
I have created this blog so that people can see more of the studio process.
