Come celebrate the launch of my book in Brooklyn, NY Thursday January 3rd!
There will be a kurinuki workshop in Maggie Boyd’s studio where participants will learn to carve a cup out of a solid ball of clay. Cups will be completed during the class and then glazed and ready for pickup two weeks later. The class will be approximately 2 hours in length from 6-8pm on Thursday, January 3rd.
After the workshop a book launch, signing and small sale of work will be available from 8-10pm at Molasses Books (located above Maggie’s studio) in Bushwick.
See ya there!

The Toe River Studio Tour is perhaps the largest and the longest running studio tour in the country; you will find craftspeople and artists in nearly every medium, many tops in their field and several new-to-the-tour participants. This year’s tour boasts 112 artists in 68 studios, plus 7 galleries, all welcoming seeking a Journey of the Arts.
FREE, self-guided, this adventure will lead you to some unique places situated between Mt. Mitchell and Roan Mountain. Visitors travel through valleys, past streams, across rivers, over hilltops, and experience breathtaking mountain vistas as they those many out-of-the-way studios. Meet the artists, see where they create and where they live.
TRAC sponsors a Meet-The-Artist reception at their Spruce Pine Gallery on Friday evening after the tour closes for the day. A sampling of participants will be on display geographically so one can plan a route for the rest of their journey. For a sneak peak at the tour, the exhibition is on display at the gallery beginning May 12. And if you won’t be able to do the tour, you can purchase those “can’t live without” or “this would be perfect for” pieces before. There will be food and drink and lots of artists to get to know. It’s free and open to the public. Just stop on by and say hello to staff, artists, and the many volunteers who make it all possible.
