On this snowy Wednesday at Bostree in Sugar Loaf, NY

On this cold Wednesday of ice and snow in Sugar Loaf, NY, I took these photos and made a big pot of vegetable, venison stew. Perfect in one of Andy’s porcelain bowls!

… While Ray and his Husqvarna cleared the parking area of the Bostree studio, even though Andy’s pottery classes are cancelled for the evening.

… And the gallery, no longer located on Kings Highway, awaits it’s reopening on Wood Road, tucked-in snugly for for the winter.

… The finches fluttered and feasted, unperturbed by the weather.
The feeder is almost empty, but dependable me will refill it!

Wishing you warmth!

Blessing Cup Pottery Retreat Kiln Demo

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! 🙂
