The Bostree Gallery Reopening June 21, 2014

I’ll be reopening the Bostree Gallery at 56 Wood Road, Sugar Loaf, NY on Saturday, June 21st. For those of you who remember, the gallery was located here from 1984 -1999. Here’s how the new space is looking so far…

I’ll be having a big sale on items that are in stock to make room for new and upcoming work. This would be a good time to invest in dinnerware or to start early, early Christmas shopping!

There’s still more to do, especially out in the garden where I’ll have outdoor displays.

Image by Terry Boswell "Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love."I took this photo a few years ago. If you take notice you will see that it’s decorated with hearts. We had  bought a cut-fresh-that-day tree on Christmas Eve. It was still fresh after New Years and I just couldn’t bring myself to take it down. When it got close to Valentine’s Day, I stripped off the Christmas ornaments, cut hearts from paper and decorated the tree with those. It became my Valentine’s tree :-) I edited the photo last year and added the quote. I am captivated by the quote because it seems to me that each year the spirit of Christmas survives and transcends commercialism, overflows religious confines, and spills out amongst all. Everyone can get on board with love and goodwill no matter their religious or non-religious proclivities. Wishing you all peace and joy this holiday season! ~Terry

Workshop: Glazing Imagery with Andrew Boswell

Grolleg Porcelain Illustrated teapot by Andrew Boswell

 

Sunday, July 22nd, 1:00-4:30pm
or
Sunday, August 12th,
1:00-4:30pm

Limit 8 participants.

 

To register, email Ray Boswell at RayBoswell@PotteryRetreat.com

Bostree Studio is proud to present a one day workshop focusing on the fine art of glazing with imagery. For the past year, Andrew Boswell has been developing non-toxic slips, glazes and simple techniques with specific brushes to get the most effective look possible. Despite the beautiful and intricate detail, the process is easier than you would think, and Andrew is willing to share his knowledge in this workshop.

Participants will be invited to bring 3 of their own bisque pots. Andrew will demonstrate the process and walk you through glazing your own pieces with his methods. The workshop will have an intimate atmosphere to make sure every question is heard and everyone receives individual attention. Practicing the simple and efficient techniques will give you the skills to glaze beautiful works of art. Andrew will fire your 3 pieces and have them available to be picked up at the studio the following week.

The workshop will run on Sunday, July 22nd, from 1 – 4:30pm and Sunday, August 12th from 1:00-4:30pm. You may sign up for either day. Your 3 pieces must each fit in
a 5x5x5 inch cube and already be bisque fired. Plates, cups or bowls in either a white
stoneware or porcelain are preferred. Work must be rated for a cone 9 reduction firing.
The cost is $85 per person and there are only 8 spots per day. Please email Ray Boswell at RayBoswell@PotteryRetreat.com if you are interested in this amazing workshop.

In addition, Ray is offering a workshop on July 21st, and August 11th. Although
these two workshops are independent, they compliment each other. The Saturday
workshop with Ray
concentrates on creating the form and the Sunday workshop with
Andrew concentrates on designing the surface. Ray’s workshop is $95, but you may
sign up for them both Ray and Andrew’s workshop (Saturday July 21st and Sunday July 22nd, or Saturday August 11th and Sunday August 12th) at the discounted price of $165. Please email Ray Boswell at RayBoswell@PotteryRetreat.com if you are interested in this amazing workshop.
