Pottery Open House

MERRIMAC, MA – The Potters at Purple Sage studio will hold their annual fall Open Studio Sale at Purple Sage Pottery, 3 Mechanic St. in Merrimac, MA, on Sat., November 16, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sun., November 17, from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. There will be an abundance of decorative and functional pottery and sculpture for sale made by fifteen local clay artists.

This year’s lineup features guest artist Karen Orsillo. Karen, who has been working with clay for over 30 years, lives and creates her pottery in Kittery, ME. She teaches many classes and workshops, some of them at Purple Sage Pottery, as well as being adjunct faculty at New Hampshire Institute of Art in the BFA program ceramics department. She loves to share her passion for clay and is best know for her technique often called neriage (nair ee ah ghee) or nerikomi (nair ee comb ee) from the Japanese tradition. This process does not use glazes but rather puts color directly into porcelain clay. Layers (sometimes over 100) of complex color combinations are built up, cut and reassembled to create amazing patterns that will be sure to delight all who visit.

Joining Karen will be Purple Sage owner Iris Minc, Peter Grams, Bonnie Jean Malcolm, Christina Bellinger, Hiromi Satoh, Lisa Mistretta, Lucy Hutchinson, Sibel Alpaslan, Kathy Kriegel, Jenny Graf, Anna Guerra, Reg Logan and Eliza Goodell, as well as Mochizuki, Fumihiko, this time downstairs in his own studio. There will be a kiln opening on Saturday morning, demonstrations throughout the show and light refreshments.
