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!
