Thistledown Farm Pottery will be participating in the 7th Annual Studio Tour!  I will be hosting three artists at my studio and gallery.  Linda Van Hart, Joyce Schaum and guest artist Kelsey Wailes will be here to offer beautiful crafts for you to buy!
Linda Van Hart is a very well known artist and creates amazing jewelry and more from sterling and gold.  The intricate detail of her work is astounding.  Every piece is a one of a kind work of art, a wonderful gift for yourself or for someone very special. Her work can be seen on her website at:  www.tollhousestudio.com
Joyce Schaum is a basket maker unlike any basket maker you have seen before.  Her eye for balance, texture, and color is delightful.  Her style incorporates traditional methods but the finished product will fit in beautifully in contemporary as well as classic settings.  She also does chairs with woven seats as well as stools.  She will offer baskets of all sizes, so you will be sure to find a piece that is just what you are looking for.
Guest Artist Kelsey Wailes will have her very eclectic collection of wares to offer, including fine art prints and amazing sculptures.  Her renown sculptures and toys run the gamut from adorable ornaments for cell phones, charms and necklaces, to a very popular line of Doctor Who inspired figures that are internationally recognized and sought after.  Her work will delight people of all ages. She is also a renown author, with her first published children’s book, “Stompadon”…a wonderful story.  Check out her art on Deviant Art:  eattoast.deviantart.com
I will have many sculptures to choose from…from architectural to outdoor garden ware. As many of you know,  I have had to cut back severely on the number of shows I participate in these past few years.  There are a few sculptures that have been carried over, still looking for the right person to take them home.  So I am having a one-time only “Orphan Sale” this year.  Carry-overs from 2012 are on sale at 25% off, carry-overs from 2011 are 35% off, and older than that are 50% off!  Here is your chance to buy first quality one of a kind art at a very special price!  There will be a few seconds for sale, offered at first come-first served!
I will have a handicapped parking space marked, and my studio and gallery are both wheelchair accessible.  I will also have a handicapped accessible rest room. There will be yummy refreshments and light fare served!   Let’s hope for nice weather…and we hope to see a lot of familiar faces and meet new patrons, too!  Thank you for supporting our local artists..we appreciate your patronage so very much.  If you have any questions, please call 410-751-1832.  Visit me on Facebook at:
