Preparing to make the move back to Wood Road, Sugar Loaf, NY!
Get a jump on your holiday shopping.
Everything in the gallery is 20 – 60% off!
In the next few months I will be moving the gallery back to 56 Wood Road in Sugar Loaf, NY to reunite it with our home and studio. From 1999 until now, the gallery has been located separately on Kings Highway. Ray and I opened Bostree in Sugar Loaf in 1982. From 1984 to 1999 visiting the gallery at our home and studio on Wood Road offered a peek into an artist’s world. I am looking forward to creating this kind of presentation again, reconnecting with my creative roots, simplifying my life… and tending that overgrown garden once again. ~Terry Boswell
PS… and we’re having a “moving soon” SALE!
Future brides… Join us in Sugar Loaf for a fun and unique day out. Bostree will be one of the many shops participating in the Brides’ Day Blast to be held on April 21st from 12:00-4:00pm.
The day will start at the Bertoni Gallery where you will receive your Bride Specials Page and enjoy complimentary champagne, hors d’oeuvres, and mini muffins provided by Laura’s Sweets. More info can be found here.

Have a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
As many of you know, Ray spends most of his time guest speaking as a retreat facilitator these days, taking himself and his wheel out on the road, blending spirituality and creativity. One type of retreat that Ray does is a blessing cup retreat for kids preparing to make their First Communion and their parents. Each child participating at the retreat draws a design on a bisqued chalice or blessing cup. This video shows what happens to all those chalices after the kids at the blessing cup retreats draw on them.
Many thanks to Laura Smith for putting this video together!

Warm up these late-winter days with a satisfying chicken soup beautifully presented in an eye catching handcrafted bowl made by my son Andrew Boswell! (Chicken soup made by me!)
This is one of my son’s fantastic soup bowls filled with the chicken soup I made last night. The bowl is high fired grolleg porcelain glazed with Andrew’s celedon and black glaze. You may not be able to duplicate the bowl yourself, but perhaps the soup. If you would like to give it a try… I made it approximately as follows. I say approximately because I don’t always measure when I cook!
The soup ingredients include (approximately)…
6 chicken legs
6 chicken thighs
The following vegetables cut into bite size pieces…
4 – 5 sweet onions
8 – 12 carrots
8 – 10 potatoes
3 – 4 tbls. Better Than Bouillion Organic Chicken Base
2 tbls. dulse flakes
2 tbls. parsley
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. tumeric
2 tbls. olive oil
salt and pepper
I boiled the chicken in water until the meat began to come off the bone and then set it aside to cool. Once cooled, I skimmed off the fat, picked the meat from the bones and set the meat aside. I returned the skimmed broth to an 8 quart pot, added the onions, added water and turned the burner to a medium flame. Then I cut the carrots and added them. Next, I cut and added the potatoes and the Better Than Bouillion. I made sure I had more than enough water to cover everything but not quite filling the pot. I added the meat back in when the potatoes were just about cooked, and a bit of salt and pepper. Once the potatoes were cooked, I added the olive oil and it was ready to serve!
That’s my “approximate” soup recipe. Tweak it as needed! You’ll have to visit the gallery or send me an email to purchase one of Andy’s gorgeous bowls.:-)
