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

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

I sell at the Market, Fundy Farms Stand, Cape Enrage Gift shop, with a bit at Farmer Browns Greenhouse (&fbook) my special ‘Pink Church‘ girls.  Sometimes at Studio On the Marsh… and pop-ups around lower Albert County as the wind takes us.  I have just a small production – and like it that way.  Host potter converts in the winter throwing season, ages have ranged 7 to 70.  

Seedy Saturday will be our next show on March 7 at the Kiwanis.

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.  Lately having a spate of amateur writing published locally, something to do when avoiding winter.

NEWS?

Moved the sawmill up to the next log cabin site, and lost it again in the snow.

Made a big very ugly pot in a test fire of my gas kiln still under construction.  My brick electric kiln is dissolving, about 1 year out from rebuild.shopping for a new kiln and slab roller if you see one. 

Make signs now and then, hand paint everything.  Last did a temporary sign for Curryville Community Center.  Next?  Resuscitating a Gerber GS-15 sandblast mask cutter that will sign into rock or live edge timber.  Still looking for parts.  

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.
