Ruth-Ann and I share a summer market table at the Olde Church Farmer’s Market, Saturdays 9 – 2 pm, at the old Hillsborough Village Church and Oliver’s bakery, 2807 Main Street, here in Hillsborough NB.  

Fundy Mud Pottery is about processing and firing the  local Fundy mud I gather in summer between my house and ‘The Rocks,’ while Ruth-Ann’s entity is her original limited edition Linocut Prints and cards.

I place at Fundy Farms Stand, Cape Enrage Gift shop, ‘Pink Church‘ and Studio On the Marsh – with pop-ups around lower Albert County as the wind and the Landshark takes us.  Have a very small production – and like it that way.  Host potter converts in the winter throwing season, ages 7 to 70 so far. 

lately built a new display for Ruth-Ann over at Wendy Johnson‘s, and planning something similar in Alma at the ever exciting Cleveland  Place.  

Looking back at 2019, one of my favourites was a  Farmer Brown event where OleStar, held a free kids Clown music class on the Rav Vast.  Finished a small house project for my friend, thinking of another log build and need to fix up a road and river erosion at the bridge of death.

The Italian gas kiln is finished re-construction.  The Amaco HF105 big brick electric kiln, lid and hinges broken, relays burnt… is now rebuilt!  Finally converted the little Paragon to a 3 key controller with a solid state relay.

I make signs now and then, hand paint everything.  Last did a temporary sign for Curryville Community Center.  Next? New signs for a new farm market. 

Resuscitating a Gerber GS-15 sandblast mask cutter to sign into rock or live edge timber.  Acquired a New Hermes Engraving machine, still wondering how it works.   

Come for tea if you can find me.  Hint: look for an iron fish on the road barn, and a Thunderbird carving beside the door to my so called studio.  I don’t sell from the porch here, just drink King Cole with who ever comes by while plotting world domination.
