Beyond the Valley Studio Tour

I just returned home from a sucessful weekend as a guest at Richard Fisher's studio for the Beyond the Valley Studio Tour. It was great to see so many people out on such a lovely weekend and also see that the looming recession in the US (and in Canada as some fear) did not prevent people from purchasing handmade items from the artists on the tour. I was fortunate to have a feature photo in the Hamilton Spectator this week which resulted in a number of people coming to see my Spider Chrysanthemum wall piece. I had two available and both went to great homes within 5 minutes of eachother. Next stop in the fall season ... the Fall Guild Sale November 7-9th (see http://www.hamiltonpotters.ca/) and then my Holiday Open House and Sale here at my studio December 5th to 7th. See my website at http://www.taralynnefranco.com/ for details. I will be making some of the old favourites as well as new pieces perfect for holiday gift-giving and continuing to develop my line of pendants which I will also have for sale.

Love the textural contrast in the Chrysanth piece. Is the main part slab built?
