Well – Spring was late and so are we.  Our annual Spring Open House will be Friday through Sunday, June 2nd, 3rd and 4th.  We are putting the finishing touches on the gardens and the pottery and hope you can join us for what looks to be some perfect northwest spring weather.  We have a new crop of garden totems, birdhouses, and baths as well as gifts for a summer wedding.   Bunnies, real and imagined, are inhabiting the lawn. And several nesting birds have joined us as well.

We are just off highway 8 – between mileposts 14 and 13.  Follow the signs to the studio.

Our Annal Winter Open House will be held at the studio on December 2nd – 4th.  That’s a Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9-4 each day.

We have two kiln loads yet to fire – so even we are not exactly sure what we will be offering.  But I can tell you that we have a couple of new glaze combinations, and enough variety to please most everyone.  And we will be ready to greet you with coffee, cider and cookies.

We are just off Highway 8 – 15 minutes West of Interstate 5 in Olympia.  If you have not been to our studio before and would like to come this year – contact us and we will make sure you have directions.

Thanks to all of you who continue to support us and our work.

We are hosting our Winter Studio Open House this weekend – December 4th, 5th and 6th.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  We will be open each day from 9am – 4pm. (Daylight hours)

If you are looking for a practical gift, we have Serving Dishes in a variety of forms and colors. For the garden folks we still have a selection of garden art – Masks, Bird houses and a few of our totem’s. We have Holy water fonts and shrines for those in a more spiritual state of mind.  kcp tiff loon 1An “interesting” shelf of seconds for those in need of a bargain – And as much good cheer as two reclusive individuals can muster!

Thanks for your continued support of our work!

We will be hosting our annual Spring Open House here at the studio on Saturday, May 2nd and Sunday, May 3rd.

Lots of new garden art and there is one more kiln load to fire, so some of it will be a surprise for us as well!

If you would like to join us we are 15 minutes from Interstate 5 near Olympia, Washington.  Head west on the road toward the coast (Aberdeen) and when you get to the Summit Lake exit past milepost 13 you will turn off the highway at the sign that says KC Pottery.

We are almost ready for the Winter Open House!  Friday – Sunday,  December 6th, 7th and 8th.  We will be open each day from 9-4 (daylight hours) and there will be coffee, cider and cookies to reward you for your effort.

We have been working on a variety of pieces this fall.  In addition to some of your favorite serving pieces, we have yarn bowls and soap dishes and a nice selection of individual mugs and bowls.

The Tile Festival in October brought forth a new selection of the low relief “City-Scapes” – some of which moved back to the farm . . . so rural or urban, I think you will find them unique.

E-mail us if you need directions to the studio

Here are just a few examples of this falls work

I have been making “Fish Sticks” as on of the next phases of my sacred water series.  I’m still finding difficult to articulate what they represent for me – But as soon as I get a handle on it, I will let you know!IMG_8124 IMG_8136 IMG_8125

We have been working on several new pieces for this year’s Open House and will be firing the kiln one more time this month to finish what we made.
Come on out the weekend after Thanksgiving (Friday too) if you are looking for some holiday gifts or just need a lemon bar.
We’ll be ready for you rain, shine, or lack of power (that has only happened once during an open house) from 9am to 4pm each day. If you need to come in the evening, just call to make sure we will be here.

Thank you for you continued support of our work.

Well we have been busy!  We started the season a little early this year with a trip to Pacific Grove California and our first out of state fair  – The Good Old Days event.  It’s great to have siblings in beautiful cities and we seem to be making a habit of visiting and showing in these towns.  Works pretty well for us!

Then we went to Tokeland (yes, if you are not from Washington State that really is the name of the town) out on the coast and participated in an Artists tour out there.

Took a Pottery class in Hawaii at the Donkey Mill Art Center with Ellen Shankin.  Great instructor, great location and a lot of fun.

Delivered Garden Art to Joy Creek Nursery in Scappoose Oregon (Near Portland).

And we just participated in our favorite fair of the year – Sorticulture, in Everett Washington.  Garden Art specific – this event is held every June in Legion Park, and put on by the City of Everett – a really well run event!

And now we will focus on the local farmers market in Olympia where we are guest vendors – meaning we can participate on Thursdays or Fridays.  So we hope to make it to the market at least once a week if there is space.

Hope everyone out there is having a busy, joy filled Spring and early Summer!
