Whistle Post Pottery gets into the spring of things by Melissa Garcia Parry

With winter officially behind us we find ourselves coming out of hibernation. We have been busy but mostly behind the scenes. We found some time for experiments, including the vase pictured above. Dave took some time to participate in a wood firing with friends and other ceramic artists at the home and studio of Tea Duong and Nina Fernstrom-Duong outside Junction City. The results are a total change from the usual Whistle Post Pottery wares. We don't expect any pots from this batch to be up for sale but who knows what the future may hold? 

We do continue to work on moving home and studio. In fact, it may be a move of home and a building of studio from scratch. Things are getting slightly more real but we are still in the early stages of tackling all the logistical challenges. Due to this anticipated move we have dropped a few shows from our usual schedule. We hope that the space we've cleared in our show circuit in summer/autumn will allow this move to be as seamless as possible. We'll see. We still really encourage you to check our online calendar if you hope to see us at a certain show to confirm whether we'll be there.

As our plans progress we'll update this blog and also include any relevant information in our newsletter. You can sign up for the very occasional newsletter just to your right on this here page. Handy, huh?

For now it's business as usual and you will find us at the first Eugene Saturday Market of the season when it kicks off Saturday, April 7. We'll be in yet another new booth - 346. It's only 3 booths south of last year's spot, facing Oak Street, near the corner of S Park. Maybe we'll see you there?
