Spring has been jumping here with chickens laying tons of eggs, seedlings sprouting, baby chicks growing fast, first broilers will be ready May 20th says Ry Hook of Turkeyfoot Farm, which is onsite, basically surrounding our studios. Ry has eggs for sale now – for greens and the like you can follow his instagram @rymaehook or call us. We sell eggs and honey currently out of the studio gallery shop.
Jon is off to NCECA , National Council on Education in Ceramic Arts, at the end of March to give a short presentation on woodfired kiln design and the assisted used fryer oil burner system he has been using. This conference is in Minneapolis this year, many ceramic art educators in one place.
I (Andrea) have dropped decorative papers off at the Watson Library for the Paper Legacy collection. You can find information about the collection with this link. Better yet go see it – the marbled and paste papers are mind blowing – it was certainly an education and inspirational.
In the Field intensive workshop at the end of June still has spaces following this link for more info. My book with the same title which I am self publishing will be out May 15th and you will be able to order it through our website. I will have it with me at PBI too. It will instruct how to gather, select, and process natural fibers in your area thoroughly!
Jon and I have a collaborative show opening August 9th at the Krasl Art Center in St Joe, MI.
Hope to see you this spring/summer in your travels or ours.
