The Art on the Wabash Fair was today and so I headed out first for a breakfast of crepes and hot tea at the Greyhouse Cafe and then to the art fair in Tapawingo Park, next to the levee.
I love anything blue, so I purchased a blue and cream pottery bowl at Gail Johnston’s Hands of the Potter booth. I fell in love with the creamy interior and blue rim. Gail makes and sells stoneware, crystal, raku and fused glass art. The pottery line I purchased from is microwave and dishwasher safe. Heating in the oven should be done from a cold start.

Another favorite is Sharon Owens’ Inspired Fire booth, where I purchased a glass heart paperweight. There’s a story to this shop, as about 4 or 5 years ago, I took a beginning glass blowing/ marble making class from her. It was such a neat experience – I learned all about using the flame torch and making blown glass objects, beads and marbles. She said I must return soon and take more classes! And I think I shall!
