Denman Island Pottery Tour

Spent the morning at the Arts Centre handing out maps for the annual pottery tour. Took some photos of the items on display, then stopped at Gallerie Deya on the way home to buy a piece from Sudasi Gardner (Weavings, Paintings, Pottery and Plants, phone 335-0265 website n/a) who is a wonderful artist in clay and textiles.
The first photo is of the plate that I bought from Sudasi, and immediately put into my garden. Sudasi show many of her works in her wonderful garden.
