23rd Annual Artisan Studio Tour

Tour setupTour setup2Tour Blue potsIt was a lively weekend at Mud Dauber Pottery with many new as well as long time visitors. Our guest artisan, Laurie Duxbury, demonstrated her weaving process, I gave tours of the studio and kilns, and Suzanne talked about her process while welcoming guests into our Gallery. Suzanne had the foresight to snip Mud Dauber’s beautiful flowers from the window boxes to rescue them from the sustained deep freeze that hit Friday night. As a result, many customers who purchased vases took home lovely blooms for their homes!

2nd Annual Virginia Clay Festival


The clay festival in Stanardsville, VA in late September was great fun. Most of the clay artists showing and selling their work over the weekend also demonstrated some aspect of their pottery making process. It was illuminating for potters, pottery students and for anyone generally drawn in clay.
