We are doing it again!! This time my studio is remodeled and doubled in size!

The third annual Shawnee Hills Pottery Trail event will take place Saturday, May 5th and Sunday May 6th from 10 AM to 5 PM each day. 11 potters will be featured on the Trail. The self-guided driving/biking trail will include 7 stops and go through beautiful Jackson and Union Counties in Southern Illinois.  The event is open and free for everyone and will give the public a chance to interact with potters, see the studios and view demonstrations. There will also be pottery for sale at each stop.  A Pottery Trail Passport will be available and if completed with a stamp from each stop will give the holder a chance to win free pottery.  The link for the Shawnee Hills Pottery Trail website, which includes information on each of the potters and maps of the trail is:
