On June 23rd & 24th, Turtle pottery had its debut at the Bridgman Studio semi-annual pottery show and sale.

Friday night’s opening was more like an impromptu cocktail party, featuring wine, cheese, and good conversation with friends who’d come out to support my first show. By the end of the evening, to my pleasant surpirse, many of my best pieces were sold.  Saturday we had a steady stream of people dropping in to take a look.  Most didn’t leave empty handed.

Between Melissa’s pieces and mine, we had a nice mix of styles.  A skilled potter and hand builder, Melissa is known for her  intricate leaf platters, julip cups, and bamboo pieces glazed in signature white, celadon, blue, or yellow. I wasn’t known for anything, so that was half the fun. After a year, though, my style is starting to emerge.  I showed teapots, bowls, mugs, and mini-bud vases.

Most of my pieces are simple, useful, and sturdy.  I have tended toward greens, blues, and browns in my glaze choices, which might be summaried as earthtones. Together, our pottery compliments each other – something for any taste. We had a great show and we’re already planning the next one, which will be in early November.

Stay tuned for more details.
