autumn leaves studio tour and 100 mile pottery


We're gearing up for the Autumn Leaves Studio Tour . Elsa is working on new raku work to unveil during the tour, including new designs of 'treasure boxes' and horse hair pottery. Paul will have a good selection of his salt glazed pottery in the showroom. (Note: This uncommon style of pottery that Paul creates, is developing quite a following. Come early for the best selection.)


In addition to the great pottery on hand we have something very special for you to see this year. You've undoubtedly heard about the 100 Mile Diet, and by now are asking yourself, what could we mean by 100 Mile Pottery? Well it's a lesson in history, really. Throughout the ages, potters would use what materials they had nearby to create their works ie. clay they dug from the river banks. In modern times, with the shift to using pottery suppliers and specialty ceramic products, pottery has shifted away from using "local" materials. Join us during the Autumn Leaves Studio Tour for a self guided tour "around the studio", where Paul will have all manner of rocks and minerals, crushing and milling machinery and clay processing equipment set up for you to see first hand. Learn why and how Night & Day Studio is shifting back to using local materials. This is a great way to experience the technical side of pottery and for those of you who love tools, machines and crushing things...this is right up your alley!


Lastly, we have an "end of the road" display of our previous line of brightly coloured terracotta dinnerware at exceptional prices. A great opportunity for you to shop!


The Studio Tour runs from October 2nd (yes, that's a friday, for those of you who can sneak away during the week) until October 4th, 10am - 5pm daily.


Please pass along this newsletter to friends, colleagues and family. And click here to get a map of the entire tour area. Don't forget to make us your primary stop that weekend!!


Our fabulous Guest Artists...
We have to say, in addition to what we have planned for you, we're really excited about this year's guest line up.


  • First, Jennifer Nicholson has some incredible new silver jewellery designs to show you. Her work just continues to evolve and intrigue me.
  • Christine McGrath will be displaying examples of her latest passion...felted silk scarves, along with her stunning mix media glass work. She is a multi talented artist!
  • Third, after a year off, Andrea Bird, our local and renowned encaustic artist will be back with her latest works and will be conducting demonstrations, to give you more insight into the intricate process of encaustic art.
  • And lastly, we have Wesley Bates joining us for the first time. Paul has been a fan of Wesley's work for many, many years. If you're not familiar with wood-cut engraving or his paintings, click through for a sample.


I've included links to all our artist's websites so you can see for yourself how gifted they are.
