Chatham Artists Studio Tour


The Chatham County Artists Studio Tour begins tomorrow, Saturday, at 10am. Come on over! I have my studio all cleaned up and full of treasures just waiting to be gifted to someone, or even to yourself!
Would love to see you, but bundle up, it's supposed to be cold, brrrrrr!


I dusted and even cleaned the windows.


I have a selection of barns for $125, they are ready to find new homes and they are priced for holiday shopping.  People complained last year that none of the studios had affordable work. the comment I kept to myself was maybe you should not be shopping with artists, there is a Walmart up the street.....
But I do sympathize, I can't afford art either, can barely afford to BE an artist. But I have sucked it up and made many things affordable, so there should be a little something for everyone, and you can drive on past the new Walmart they built a mile from our house, ick!


I will have a few wrap bracelets for sale, testing the waters on these at $48. Quite a bargain considering the cost of the workshop I took to learn how to make them and the time and materials.... oh art, why can't we ever get back what we put into it when we sell our work.....
I wrote a bit about each one to tell you the inspiration behind the piece and the materials used and where they were found. This was fun!

I will say I did get back from these wrap pieces in pleasure value. I have enjoyed making them so much and last night in the wee hours, I had an epiphany. I am making something for the shear enjoyment and I don't give a rip if anyone likes them or wants to buy them. I will keep them all and wear them happily if they don't sell. These have been my art salvation at the end of this year!



Lots of stars, come get one, these are all I am making for the year....


Look Cindy, a fairy sat herself up on the studio sign you made for me! Good omen, I do believe!!
Get out this weekend if you can and come say hello!

Beautiful! I think your wrap bracelets are well priced, women spend money on jewelry but think twice about pottery. Have an awesome weekend!

You have an enchanting little 'house' that just calls everyone in for a visit. I love that you have green ferns growing.
It's a little far for a day trip, but I'll be with you in spirit! xox

Love my pendant! Great to meet you. can't believe I forgot to take what you gave me- I set it down looking at pendants… that's how distracting great pottery is. :) sorry…. definitely wanted it. hope the rest of the studio tour is wonderful….
