december 15th is international tea day. a celebration of all things tea and the plight of tea pickers for better working conditions is brought to awareness. a good cause... a great day.

and every year margit gives away a teapot to honour the day. the teapot pictured is similar to the happy teapot that will be given away. you can be part of the draw by visiting the studio from now to the 15th. a great opportunity to sign up will be our annual open studio dec 5+6 featuring margits work and the lovely glass work of jo ludwig and peggy brackett of kilnart glass studio. more info to come...

keepin it simple

There Are Those Who Love To Get Dirty

There are those who love to get dirty
and fix things.
They drink coffee at dawn,
beer after work,

And those who stay clean,
just appreciate things,
At breakfast they have milk
and juice at night.

There are those who do both,
they drink tea.

Gary Snyder (1930-)
