This Saturday, July 9th, is Portland’s famed Mississippi Street Fair. I’ll be there hawking my wares. I’ve got candles and soaps of each of the three Portland scents. Don’t worry, there’s plenty to go around! Come on by and say hi, and smell the scents in person. I’ll be located between Beech and Failing Streets. Painter Monika Kralicek will be sharing a booth with me. My studio-mate Holly will also be selling her Hollyhocks Metal & Rocks line of jewelry on the same block.
I’ve been expermenting with nature’s palette and making pigments from river rock. Here’s a few swatches from Alouette Lake in Golden Ears Provincial Park, and from the Wilson River in the Tillamook Forest. Food for thought: how does art reflect a sense of place?
Winter in Portland seems sleepy and quiet, but it’s been anything but as I get ready for upcoming shows this summer. I’d love to see you, so please stop by for a chat and to experience the scents in person.
Confirmed dates are:
June 4 : Crafty Wonderland Market : Oregon Convention Center, Portland
July 9 : Mississippi Street Fair : Mississippi Neighborhood, Portland
September 3 : Maker’s Market : Vintage Vintage, 2455 SE 11th Ave, Portland
See you soon!
Today I stopped by the studio of Meadow Anderson, the ceramicist behind our porcelain tumblers. After a tour of the studio, kiln, glazes, wheels, and finishing tables, I stuck around to watch her throw. Here are a few photos from my time there.
Today we finalized all of the pre-orders. Preparing the boxes involved hand-printing with linoleum blocks.
