When the temperature is in the nineties, the only cool place to go is the studio. Steve threw the last (64) of the #110 minis for the Metropolitan Museum of Art catalog a couple of days ago. (That was a long day!) Now we are decorating them and beginning to look over our shoulders to the other orders we put aside. At the beginning of the year, we really didn't know how we would fare this year. It has been such a crazy time economically. So I scheduled a lot of shows to go to and now, finally a few galleries here and there are picking up the phone and contacting us. It is all good news but the pressure is on! the order for the Met catalog is due in July. We hope to start glazing and firing soon to make way for other pots.

We weren't the only ones who found the studio the coolest place to be.... this is olive....
we are now at 175 bisqued minis toward the Metropolitan Museum of Art's order of 300. There are another o.. 20 or so more drying. We'll do some more today. With a large order like this, we intersperse other orders to keep the ball rolling. Once we finish making the May/June orders, we'll start on making some more pots for the various retail shows coming up fast at the end of June.
Welcome! Steve and I wanted to show you our current work in a more spontaneous way. For those of you who have been collecting our work, this will add some depth to our connection. For those of you just finding us, we hope this will inspire you. Please feel free to post comments or contact us directly at 845.246.6952
We have been studio potters since 1973 and started working in the Arts and Crafts Style in 1997.
Inspired by the original Arts and Crafts Movement 1890-1910, we make both Classic Arts and Crafts pottery and a wide variety of our own designs. Each pot is thrown on the potter's wheel by Steve out of stoneware clay and then sculpted individually by either Steve or Cherie. After drying, they are fired to a bisque temperature before glazing and then fired to over 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. All vases are water tight and can be used for fresh flowers. They are NOT food safe.
