Mielkeway Pottery Show Sept. 28-30; 10-5

If raining I will move show to following weekend. (Oct 5-7).

As usual inventory is high and prices are low.

Since I last posted I’ve done three more firings and I have over 500.00 pots.

MY story:

For my amusement.

I believe in producing what the people desire and I use my surroundings to draw inspiration.   Humans, birds, mammals, not many marsupials, plants, fungus amungus, rocks and minerals, water and fire.  That just about covers it… Oh yes, the divine as well.

I feel crafting in my blood. Having an Italian heritage, the crafts are a part of my being…..

( Excuse me but there goes another motorcycle!  What a bunch of ass holes.   I ride my bicycle around town more than those gear-heads and I don’t need a loud muffler!   I’ll start seeing them when I stop hearing them.  I’ll bet they were the kids with cards between there spokes. Bunch of re@$ards.)

….My ancestors were producing ceramics at the Giuliani statuary in Italy and later started the St.Paul Statuary in St paul, where else?

Playin’ in clay, for me, started on Beech St ., St. Paul, MN. behind the neighbors garage, wow! I doesn’t seem that long ago.  Oh wait, I’m 60 so that would mean my first recollection of clay would have been 55 years B.P.

I would create the most spherical mud ball, ever.  I recall throwing them against the neighbors garage an watching them explode. I guess that’s when the neighbor came out and instructed me to go home.  Alone, behind a neighbors garage, across the street mind you.

I will continue MY story later, as time permits.

 

 

 

 

(good night for now)

Ok, back to my self.

People are always welcome to call for appointment anytime.

07/07/17 MN Flattop Gas Firing Pictures

MIELKEWAYPOTTERY  Clay Baby  Surprises.

I AM AMAZED at the variation of each firing.  You could never replicate the metamorphosis that occurs during a Cone 10 Gas firing.

ENJOY THE PICS – Scroll down and don’t stop ’til u get to the end!

NEXT SALE:  Last weekend of September 28-30 (Thurs. Fri Sat) pending weather.  I’ll move it to the first or second weekend of October if we’re gettin’ blasted by some rogue cold front.  Speaking of rogue, I’ll bet the “Rogue Potters” will be having a sale near Taylors Falls as well.

I WOULD LIKE Late season colors and leaves FALLing.

My prices are low and my inventory is high.  I believe that’s the way it should be.
