Merry Christmas, everyone



I've been in the studio this morning, joining slabs of clay into vases and making slab plates. But I now have to go and finish helping Santa for a little while. The shop is still open and I sold a few pots yesterday, including a couple of nice teabowls to a new friend, the potter John Dorsey, who's read the blog and dropped by on the way to see his father. But mostly it's quiet around here, after an eggnog party at potter Anne Halpin's place last evening. The sun is out, the snow's still on the ground and we'll go out to a Christmas Eve party tonight and then to Church of the Messiah in Woods Hole at midnight.
Merry Christmas, friends. Bring on 2011!

Photos: The gallery last year, decorated by us and by nature. And a lovely little rocky stream in North Creek, NY, in the Adirondacks. No particular reason to use the stream photo, except that it's right near Dee's sister Ellen's family ski camp and it says "winter" to me.

Merry Christmas Hollis and Dee- I feel you are family.
Guess what snow is coming here!
Did you send that just for us?!

Yes, Meredith, we ordered it for North Carolina. Hope you enjoy it! We tried to get it for Guam, but were told it was back-ordered!
