This Saturday, July 30, is the big annual Boston Handmade Somerville Marketplace featuring lots of awesome work by many local talented artists, including your truly. The event is 3-7 in Union Square. The rain date is the following day, July 31, but Saturday afternoon is looking to be gorgeous, perfect shopping weather you could even say. ;)
I will have have many new raku and sawdust fired pieces I've been working on recently. Some of these results have been VERY cool, and I'm sure you guys will like them too. I'm going to do a small demonstration at my booth also, polishing up some sawdust pots I fired. It's not nearly as exciting as the firing process itself, but it is the last step and gives the unglazed pots a beautiful sheen.
The event will also be the debut of my yarn bowls! Yup, yarn bowls! I'm pretty excited about them and I think knitters and crocheters will love them too. I recently learned how to knit, so making the bowls seemed like a natural step, combining the two crafts.
I hope to see you there! Come say hello!
