Just out of the kiln and I'm really excited about them! They'll be available at my open studio tomorrow.

Minnesota Monthly Pick!

I was thrilled to find out that one of my bowls is included in the December issue of Minnesota Monthly magazine as one of Elizabeth's Picks, a gift guide featuring Minnesota-made gifts. They found my work at Gallery 360 in Minneapolis, where I have a five-foot show up (this is like a featured artist) through mid-January. I have a really nice selection of work there for this show, including pots, ornaments and some brand new tile designs. By the way, this is one of my favorite gallery/gift shops in the twin cities! My husband has learned that when he needs to find me a gift, he can't go wrong buying me jewelry or art from this cute shop.

Made in MN Gift Guide

I've been included in the Made in MN Gift Guide 2008 put out by Minnesota 2020! This seems like a great resource for spending your holiday gift dollars locally and supporting local businesses and independent artists (even locally and handmade!). A picture of my snowman ornament made it onto the cover of the accompanying report on boosting MN's economy. I haven't had a chance to read through the report yet, but I'm pretty interested in what it has to say. Visit Minnesota 2020's website to read more about the report and download the Gift Guide.

Holidays at the Good Life

If you're in the Lake Minnetonka area be sure to stop by the upcoming Holiday Showcase at The Good Life in Wayzata. It opens next weekend and runs through the holiday season. I'm delivering a lot of ornaments for this show so there will be good selection available. I also have a nice selection of work in their shop on an ongoing basis. Happy shopping!

Art Attack - today and tomorrow!

This weekend is Art Attack, Northrup King Building's annual studio crawl. Over 150 artists will be showing and selling their work over the next two days. I have lots of new pots, new designs and holiday ornaments for sale. Studiomate Lucy Grantz is showing her adorable ocarinas and Claudia Poser is showing ceramic sculpture and jewelry. It's a great way to spend a cold fall day wandering the building. Be sure to wear walking shoes and bring a stroller if you have little ones.
Hope to see you! Visit website for event details and directions.
