Throughout the Holiday Season, my work will continue to be part of the
Northfield Arts Guild Fine Crafts Collective show. Open daily.
So grateful to be part of this artist-loving community!
Whether near or far, you can always find me at Etsy.com
Sharing three bowls below. Enjoy!
The Autumn Festival was great - a huge show, more on the crafty-side than my previous shows with lots of fun holiday-themed goods. Now, I'm focused on the remaining big shows - the St. Paul Old Fashioned Christmas holiday show at Landmark Center from December 4 - 6. Also, Carleton show on November 4 in Northfield.
And, I've now posted a number of my pieces on etsy.com. Here's the link to my shop. Let me know how it works! I'd love to be able to continue to serve all of the great customers I've had over the years on the East Coast. Etsy seems to be a good way to do it.
Sharing a picture of a birdseye maple oval board that I did with some beautiful wood from Wisconsin. Enjoy!
Feeling great about this weekend's Autumn Festival at Canturbury Downs in Shakopee, MN. Setting up today for the four-day show, featuring hundreds of artists. Glad to see that I'll be filling a niche at the show - doesn't look like there are any other turners or spoon makers. (Follow the link to get $1 off advance tix.)
Meanwhile, I've been happy to be invited to participate in the Northfield Art Guild's Fine Craft Collective taking place from November 5 - December 24 at the Art Guild Gallery (304 Division Street South; Northfield, MN). Works from 22 local artists are featured at the collective.
Finally, sharing a sweet, little bowl that I turned this spring that my daughter Ruby chose to give to my wife, Rachel. It's now in her office, inspiring Carleton students to live their passions!
Please call anytime with questions or to place an order.
It's been a remarkable fall in Minnesota - 70s into early November?! I'll take it!
I've been in my happy place for the past several weeks: I finally have been able to turn all of the logs I've received from many generous people in the area into bowls. It's been fun to discover how different the Minnesota wood is from that up on the East Coast. Here, the cherry is a lovely, strawberry-blond color. The walnut turns like a dream. And the figure in most of the wood is remarkable. I've been so happy to discover that my turned bowls are drying faster, so I may even have some bowls ready yet this year. (All of the large salad bowls that I brought from DC sold earlier last month!)
I've got three shows left this year, with a few other venues featuring my work. Next Thursday, I'll be in Shakopee at Canterbury Park for the Autumn Festival. I'm trying to mentally prepare for the long days, but excited to meet more good people out for their holiday shopping.
As always, I'm happy to take orders by phone. Also, you may want to look for my things on etsy.com, where I've posted a few of my pieces to learn if that's a worthwhile venue.
Until next time, be well!
