Ninth annual Holiday Open House at the studio this weekend! - Friday & Saturday only, 3 - 6 on December 2, 9 - 5 on Saturday the 3rd.

If you're in town, drop by to see the latest stoneware from the studio - and, as in past years, there'll be piles of older work to browse through & take away at fabulous prices.

Shipping for your purchases is easily arranged - still plenty of time, too, for mailing before the holiday arrives.

Refreshments too!

Or - if you're not in town, shop on-line - highlights of the last two firings are there, and shipping is free for the rest of the year with this code:

FreeShipDecember

Just enter it during the checkout process. As always, feel free to give a ring or email here at the gallery for information about additional work that's available or if you'd like to see additional images - 

Borax - discovered in Tibet, transported along the Silk Road - is a handy compound for use in ceramic glazes & slips. Also useful in cooking, cosmetics, and in the manufacture of fiber glass. The trade name '20 Mule Team Borax,' under which the partially-dehydrated salts of boric acid are still sold as a laundry booster, was first used around 1900 when Francis Marion Smith started using mules to haul the mineral out of Death Valley.

I learned this reading Desert Bloom, a beautiful recent article by Alex Ross making vivid the drama, the geology, the allure of this place - crucial reading for a potter, somehow. "The Death Valley that we see now did not begin to form until about three million years ago," Ross comments. "It has a raw, chaotic look, like an unfinished construction project."

...along those lines...the passage of time & the recent past...2016 has flown by, and I have tried, as one must in the studio, to document & record. New blog posts, every month or so, describe recent thoughts & happenings in the studio - and as I try to deepen the web site archive I've added a little collection of images from the year - giving a fleeting glimpse, hopefully, of the arc of the year at Green River Pottery. Though the year's not over yet...

As always, thank you for your interest in the studio. Have a fabulous 2017 & I hope to see you!
