Debra J. Groesser painting En Plein Air
Yesterday painters from the Peninsula School of Art’s Plein Air Festival painted the beautiful surroundings here at Plum Bottom Pottery. Over 200 people came to watch the artists in action. It was an exciting day here at the gallery – I always look for opportunities to collaborate with artists in different mediums. I loved seeing Plum Bottom thru the eyes of other artists. I was particularly drawn to the work of Debra J. Groesser(DebraGroesser.com). She found one of my favorite spots to paint on the top of a hill overlooking the entire property. I really enjoyed talking with her about the process of painting en Plein Air as well as art. You can see her work of the grounds here at Plum Bottom as well as all the other artists in the festival on Saturday July 25th from 6-8pm at the Peninsula School of Art.

I know summer had actually been here for awhile, but the gallery has been humming the last few weeks. I’ve also been tangling with a new line of pots that are in the kiln being fired as I write this. 100 new porcelain pieces will be making their debut this Weds. Also if new pots are enough reason to lure you to the gallery - come and see painters from the Plein Air Festival painting the beautiful surroundings here at Plum Bottom Wednesday, July 22nd from 11-2pm. Until then . . .

I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July! I went to the fireworks in Sturgeon Bay – beautiful. I thought I would post some pictures of my last two firings that I did back to back. I had some really nice results with the carbon trap shino I’m working with, as well as some nice surprises working with blue and black together. Those two colors really play off each other nicely. You can click on the images above for a larger view. I’m already planning another firing in a couple weeks. It is the busy season here in Door County, so I’ve already gotten back to the wheel and started making.
I also would like to invite folks to sign up to receive Plum bottom Pottery email updates, if you go to plumbottompottery.com you can sign up right on the homepage. Once on my list I’ll let you know when new pots are posted on the website, as well as notifications for all the big events here at Plum Bottom.
