It’s getting a little busy around here….

Yesterday, I dropped off my wares at the South County Art Association in Kingston, RI for their 43rd Annual Holiday Sale, which runs Wednesday through Sunday, November 29 to December 22.   In addition, I will also be taking part in the Newport Art Museum Faculty and Student Show on November 29 and 30.

The Hubbards Have Taken Over!

Sounds like a family feud or a turf war, doesn’t it?  Who could have imagined the result of taking one large hubbard squash out of a bushel basket in the back of a produce truck?  It’s hubbard mania!  A hubbard squash is a perfect clay mold–great size, great texture, and unlimited glazing options.  Why, I have a “working hubbard squash” as my employee/mold…it’s been in my cool cellar for at least 6 weeks allowing me to drape clay and produce bowl after bowl.  After selling a couple squash bowls, I purchased two more smaller hubbard squash at a farm stand and are creating smaller bowls (yet decent sized) from my two new employees (molds).   So reserve your hubbard squash bowl for your Thanksgiving table now–before they decompose and end up

P.S. What is the plural of hubbard?  hubbards or hubbard?

Large bowls are currently $40 and smaller bowls will be $30 at the Robin’s Nest Shop.

Open House on Sunday

The final glaze kiln is firing now and the pottery items will still be warm as I price them and put them out on display at tomorrow’s Fat Robin Pottery open house from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Robin’s Nest (my garage) at 26 Simmons Street, Newport.  Cookies and apple crisp are baking now.  Stop in for a cup of tea and one of Dana’s mamool cookies, which are the inspiration for my mamool stamped pottery!  Here’s a sample of what is available.  Can’t make it?  Call or email to set up another time.  Happy Time Change Sunday!
