We love the changing of seasons - colors of the leaves shifting to a beautiful fall palette, and teases of crisp, fresh weather suggesting something new is in the air!

Celebrate American Craft Week
Amercian Craft Week starts October 2nd
Join us as we celebrate the wonders of American craft by recognizing the enduring value of handmade by sharing a variety of local craft artists with you. During the Celebration of American Craft Week you can meet accomplished artists; experience the excitement of contemporary craft-making; enjoy a special show; & help raise money for Empty Bowls by taking part in our ART Raffle fundraiser.
Here is a bit about this national event, from the founders at Craft Retailers & Artists for Tomorrow (CRAFT): It's an opportunity to celebrate the wonders of American craft. Every day thousands of American artists share their vision and talent by producing amazing hand-made decorative and functional objects. And every day thousands of craft retailers share their love of these items by displaying, promoting and selling them. As one craft artist put it, "this is the creative economy!"
American Craft enriches our homes, wardrobes, offices and public spaces. It contributes to our nation's economy, our balance of trade, and the fabric of our national history. It is original, beautiful and enduring, so let's tell the world!

This is one of our favorite times of the year ~
 American craft is WHO WE ARE!

Featured artists & events: 
October 2-11 ~ ART Raffle benefiting Empty Bowls
October 3 ~ Debra Klopp ~ Spooky creatures Trunk Show & Demo 
October 4 ~ Laura Davis, Core Clay & Clay Alliance Pottery Throw-Down

Jason Kiley
Please welcome new Hillsboro, Ohio potter, Jason Kiley, to our indigenous family of artists! Jason delivered his first batch of fun pottery - bowls, plates, mugs & cups with his creative decals of wonderfully wild combinations of imagery ~ cats + dinosaurs, Star Wars characters & skaters, Pee Wee Herman + Storm Trooper, Cap'n Crunch Cereal Killer and more! Some cups are cast from beer cans - the "average joes" and others from tin cans, "vagabonds". All to enjoy & make you giggle a bit.
"I am a studio potter who has combined my love of collage with my love of clay. I do this through the use of decals that I create and print for my ceramic work. I decorate my ware with combined imagery ranging from historic photos to pictures of my cat Dumptruck. Through these strange collaborations I work to achieve a sense of nostalgia, and to make you laugh."
new and delightfully spooky ~
