Come see what we make

We have pots all over the place, in the house and in the studio. I am pretty fond of the hand-built bowls pictured in the front there. They are generously proportioned, big enough for a whole meal. We call them monks' bowls.
And, we are having one more event at our place this weekend:

Jensen & Marineau Holiday Open Studio
Saturday, Dec. 15th, 10-5
22017 NW Beck Road Pdx 97231
*~*~*~*Please drop in to see what we make!*~*~*~*

I just unloaded a firing this morning and found a new favorite piece~
large oval platter
Or maybe it's this one~
scalloped tray
We had so much fun last weekend at our open studio; thanks to all of you who stopped by! I hope we will see some of you that we missed last Saturday.
large black & white mugs
We still have a good selection of mugs too. Come on over!

Holiday Open Studio

assorted hand-built pieces

We are right in the thick of getting prepared for our annual winter open studio. We have several new hand-built shapes that I am pretty excited about. I am particularly fond of those long, flat rectangles, called cheese boards.

Mugs are back too, by popular request, and they are enormous~ one imperial pint, to be exact. I just learned that beer forms a finer head of  foam in a glazed vessel than in glass.

We're still in production though, we will have a firing or two more during December.

I hope to see some of you locals out here on Saturday. It should be festive, plus I will have something good for you to eat and drink. Please stop by on Saturday!

And don't forget to visit Mud, Sweat, and Tears~ a pop-up shop in downtown Portland. On 12/6 First Thursday, Jonathan Brinkley will play and they'll have brandy and liqueur tastings from Stone Barn Brandy Works 4:00 - 8:00
