Clay Collective Spring Pottery Tour 2018
The Clay Collective Spring Pottery Tour. May 5 & 6 2018 from 10am - 5pm both days. A self-driving tour of 7 pottery studios in the Cambridge, Lake Mills, Johnson Creek area. The work on display (functional, decorative and sculptural) represents the ceramics of 9 host potters and 14 guest potters from Wisconsin and surrounding states. This is a great opportunity to get to see thousands of pots, the studios where they are made, speak with the artists, and maybe find a special item for your home or a gift. Jean's Clay Studio will be a guest potter at Bruce Johnson's Clay Studio in Lake Mills, Wisconsin, along with 2 other guest potters: Winchester Pottery and Freechild Studio
Milwaukee & Madison Skyline Series
I have recently created new designs that reflect the Downtown Milwaukee Skyline off of Lake Michigan and Downtown Madison off Lake Monona. These designs are being offered on plates and vases of various sizes, for a little more information on these pieces, view my recent blog post.
