Take this unique opportunity to speak personally with the artists, and view demonstrations. Light refreshments provided. The tour is family friendly, self-guided and, best of all, it’s free!

Stop by Thistledown Farm Pottery on
December 2nd & 3rd, 2017!


 As many of you know, I have been caretaker of both of my parents for quite some time. This past year their health took a dramatic downturn. I left my Studio right after The Sheep and Wool Festival, and by the first week in June I had to close up shop.

A few weeks ago my parents passed away within a few hours of each other. Their suffering is over, and I take comfort in that. The Studio is still closed up as my husband and I are dealing with Estates and Wills.However, I do still have stock to sell. I was able to get in one more firing in May. I do not have very many pieces to sell, but I will put out EVERYTHING I have, including seconds.

I want to have a Goodbye To 2017 Sale. I want to start over, with fresh new clays, glazes, and designs for 2018!

EVERY piece I have on hand will be on sale!! I will be discounting EVERYTHING from 25% to 50% OFF, with a few pieces even more that that!! No holds, please. First come, first served. There are some beautiful pieces to be had.

So please come out to Thistledown Farm and help me end this year on a positive note, and have the opportunity to purchase a piece of my work to take home with you. It will be wonderful to see so many returning customers and friends. Your smiles will warm my battered heart and you will help my time of being a hermit come to an end.

Love to everyone,


In addition to Thistledown Farm Pottery, I will be hosting The Kelsey Wailes Company in the Studio. Her amazing, eclectic art will charm everyone. Kelsey will have fantastic stuff to sell… toys, charms, prints, sculptures, and her book related items from her book, “Stompadon”!!  In The Gallery building you will find Trista Fedorak and her Wella Crafts.
