Give Handmade for the Holidays

Before you head to the mall for the craziness of after holiday sales, consider heading to a local artists studio sale to find beautiful art created by local artists. You'll find treasures worth giving and I am sure that the recipient of a handmade gift will treasure the piece you find for many many years.

OPA members start opening their studios this weekend. More artists will open the first weekend in December and those will be posted shortly. A studio sale guide is available on the Oregon Potters Association website. Many of the studio artists have invited fellow artists to participate in their holiday sales so you'll find an amazing array of art.

Chris Baskin will be open 11/26 & 11/27 from 10am - 4pm daily

Rhoda Fleischman will be open 11/26 from 5pm - 9pm and 11/27 from 10am - 4pm

Patrick Horsley will be open 11/26 from noon - 5pm & 11/27 & 11/28 from 10am - 5pm

Jacquline Hurlbert will be open 11/26 & 11/27 from 10am - 4pm and 11/28 from 11am-4pm

Ken Pincus Pottery will be open 11/26 - 11/28 from 9am - 5pm daily

Stark Street Studios will be open 11/26 - 11/28 from 10am - 5pm daily
