Golden Heart Awards

It’s been a busy week. After working for two weeks to get two kiln loads of pots glazed and fired it was time to go to the Golden Heart Awards. I was asked to create the awards for the event which was held at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay, WI. The event honors outstanding volunteers in Door County, WI. I was more than happy to be part of the event and was excited to tackle the challenge of creating unique one of a kind awards, something I have not done before. I ended up making six sculptural forms, based loosely on a heart shape then glazed with my copper red glaze – with accents of brushwork in various spots. I think the recipients were pleased with the way they turned out. The guest speaker at the event was an former Green Bay Packers running back – so it was a trip to see my sculptures being handed out by a former professional football player – if I can get a photo I will post it. Thank you to Holly Feldman for asking me to create the awards.

This weekend was also the Door County Potters’ Guild Annual Pottery Studio Tour. This is also the first time Plum Bottom Pottery opened for the season this early. Angela and I worked hard cutting more branches down in front of the gallery to open up some views to the prairie. We rented a wood chipper and chipped up all the cedar branches for the path that leads to the gallery. Mmmmmmm, it smells good. We also decided to take some of my sculptural wall platters and hang them outside the gallery. It was nice to add some color to the front of the building.

I promise to post new pictures fo the kiln firings soon – it’s just been kinda crazy around here.
