The smoke has cleared a bit in the Rogue Valley, but I’m still firing pieces about swallows for two upcoming exciting events: my show with printmaker Denise Kester at Hanson Howard Gallery during the month of October. And the Ashland Open Studio Tour, which will be the weekend of October 14-15, from 11-4 each day. I will be doing a demo of my carved work and welcome you to come visit me in my home ceramics studio!
