This is a pottery studio tour with 4 stops hosted by 10 local clay artists and featuring 12 guest artists from around the country, this self-guided studio tour and sale will include a wide range of ceramic work.  Meet the artists, see where they work and enjoy our hospitality.  The four stops on the tour all surround the beautiful community of Northfield, MN located just 40 miles south of the Twin Cities.

I do not currently sell from my web site or any of my social media. For the last few years, I have had an online sale early in November.  I have an Etsy store. that is open for just over a week for the sale. If you want to "favorite" it, it is still there, but empty.  I post notifications here and on my Facebook page when I am selling on Etsy. Please contact me if you wish to be on the mailing list for this once-a-year sale. 

In 2012 I made a change in my life and career. After 30 years of living and working in Chicago, my family and I moved to a small town in Minnesota.  I love being here because I had always hoped I would return to living in the country; close to the beauty of nature and the outdoors from which I have taken so much of my inspiration. I enjoy a tightly-knit ceramics and arts community here.
