NH Harvest 2011

It's time once again for NH Harvest - A Fine Arts and Crafts Open Studio Event. Every second weekend in October, which for New Englanders falls conveniently on the Columbus Holiday weekend, I open my studio to visitors.

For two days, I share my space with other artists, and we share the 'stage' demonstrating our skills in woodturning, carving, fine stoneware pottery and watercolor and pen and ink drawings.

If you live in the New England area, take a drive into New Hampshire, and stop by my barn. We'll be here from 10 am to 4 pm, Saturday and Sunday. And if you like what you see, we'll have several pieces for sale.

Below are some photos of recent work, maple hollow forms, painted with black gesso, and then chip carved through to reveal the contrasting wood. This is a test piece, practicing random carving patterns. You'll see this, and much more this weekend.
