Pots in a new Cahoon Museum show

The Cahoon Museum, a small but lively organization in the Barnstable village of Cotuit, will show "Come Eat at Our Table: Items for the Meal" from July 24 to September 16. The show will include work by a number of Cape Cod potters, as well as other Cape craftspeople.

Museum director Richard Waterhouse looked at several of my pots yesterday and selected six for the show, most of them plates or serving bowls (including the one shown here) and platters. The museum is in a two-story building, a former tavern, dating to the late 1700s. Lovely old rooms and narrow stairs. Very Cape Cod.
It should be a fun show.

I love the concept that the title of the show suggests. Looking forward to hearing more about the exhibit!

Hi Hollis....We may be back on the Cape while this show is in progress...if so, will make sure that I get to it. Love the Cahoon Museum and love the bowl you have posted that was a selection.

that is one lovely platter Hollis- and as you know- I would come eat at your table any time.
I can't wait to see pictures of the show because for me tableware is the root of a good pot.
