Now on sale at .... Cole Haan!

Palin I have expanded!  Look for my pieces at Cole Haan in Freeport, Maine as well as the Artisans in McLean, Va. 

Cole Haan purchased a bracelet and four necklace/earring sets of volcanic rock, handmade African glass and South American tagua nuts on my visit there in early September.  The bracelet was a beautiful charm style with scores of freshwater cultured "coin" pearls in teal and olive.  When I stopped by ten days ago on our "leaf peeping" expedition, Cole Haan had already sold two of the pieces!

Maybe I'll even spot Sarah Palin wearing one of my pieces since the New York Times featured a photo of her wearing new Cole Haan boots (purchased in Freeport?) on an outing in Maine with Senator Susan Collins.

New pieces featuring Technique Metalworx

Noixetfleur Goflyakite

I will be exhibiting and demonstrating at 438 River Bend Road.  (Google Maps link here.) It is the home of Pig Pen Pottery and Laura Nichols, President of Great Falls Studios. There is lots of parking.  The setting is absolutely bucolic: a winding country lane, a one-lane bridge, hills and dales, the way Great Falls used to be!

You will be able to see the work of a wonderful water colorist, Linda Jones, as well as the functional and decorative pottery of Laura. Weather permitting, Laura will be firing Raku in her outdoor kiln.

A color Studio Tour brochure with map to all the venues and with a description and picture of each artist's work is available at Great Falls Hardware, at the Library and many other downtown locations.   Many artists have "doubled up" as I have so that you will be able to see a variety of art, skills and talents at each location. I'd be happy to mail you one if you email me.
