I have to start this post by exclaiming how awesome an event Salad Days is. I have never been there but I’m sure it is tremendous. It works like this:
Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts gives a residency to a potter, Sean O’Connell in 2010, who makes 500 beautiful earthenware salad plates. Once the plates are made, they host a salad bar full of local veggies and for a mere $30 donation you get to pick out one of Sean’s plates and feast on the bountiful buffet.
Other attractions include a raffle of pots that are donated from potters around the country that are fired in Watershed’s wood and soda kilns and an Invitational Pottery Sale. I will sending a group of work this week for the Invitational Sale and I sent a bisque fired triangular ewer for the raffle. I won’t be there to see it fired, so if you win it in the raffle, please send a photo or post one on my Facebook page.
I will be heading across Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine in August for 2 weeks at Watershed, but I’ll save the details for an upcoming post.
