This is Erin Nolan at The Holiday Show that took place at Plum Bottom over the weekend. She was demonstration her process of creating wood block fine art prints. I appreciated the detail and got to know a little more about the integrity of this artist. I feel very lucky to have Erin show her work here at Plum Bottom.
The first annual Holiday Show was a great success. Luckily just as the show was ending Door County got its first snow storm of the season. It is beautiful, but I spent the day clearing driveways and paths. Looking forward to a relaxing evening. Remember Plum Bottom Pottery is open all winter Friday and Saturday 10-4pm(except Holidays:)
Happy Holidays everyone!

I will once again host Knock Magazine for their summer issue release party. Nik Garvoille and I have collaborated on this event for the past two years. Last year was a a great success. I am truly excited to have the contributing writers doing live readings from Issue 8 The Belly.
I am firing a new body of porcelain work that will be making its debut at the event and Angela Lensch will be unveiling her new summer jewelry designs. Last year Pamela Moore(my mother) catered the event and this year she has graciously agreed to create the cuisine but with an Asian themed twist. If you haven’t experienced my mom’s food, trust me, it’s worth the trip down to Plum Bottom in itself.
The revelry will start around 6pm on Thurs. July 15th. We will also be serving wine and beer. Come on down and feed not only your soul but your belly!
I hope to see you there!

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 . . .

This is a picture of the new porcelain work before it was fired yesterday. I can fit two stacks of pots in my kiln, so I snapped pictures of both the front and back stacks. This is the first of two firings I am doing for the Knock Magazine event here at Plum Bottom Pottery on Friday, June 26th at 6:00pm. Since there were some pots that needed to be refired, I took it slow and started the kiln the day before and then really got things going yesterday around 5am. It was great to be up that early, usually I go back to bed in between kiln adjustments, but yesterday I stayed up and did some writing and made myself breakfast. It was a really nice morning. The kiln is slowly cooling today and I will unload tomorrow. Once these pots are unloaded I will load another group of work and fire again on Sun. It’s going to be a busy week here at Plum Bottom getting ready for the big event. I hope to see lots of folks here on the evening of the 26th!
