News of November 2013

Hello November!

Where did October go? November brings cold weather, snow, and TURKEY to our tables. Great handmade dishes with beautiful brown and tan glazes grace our tables. Shino, anyone? Hello Fall!!

We are starting off the month with a bang, heading up to Breckenridge for the Colorado Art Education Association Conference in Breckenridge. We’ll round the month off with our inventory party and Thanksgiving weekend.

November Clay of the Month: Laguna’s Buff Sculpture

Stop in during November and try Laguna’s midfire Cone 5/6 clay Buff Sculpture for only $8.50 per bag. Buff Sculpture is an excellent coarse sculpture body with 60 mesh sand and 30 to 60 mesh grog. It offers a firing range of firing colors from buff to tan and a very low shrinkage.

Clay of the Month Rules: Limit 100# per purchase, per month, per person. No “holds” on clay. When limited supply of Clay of the Month is sold out, it’s gone.


Electric Kiln Workshop

Saturday, December 7 from 9 to 4 pm

taught by Ingrid King, Stone Leaf Owner & Studio Manager

Does your kiln freak you out? Do you have a love/fear relationship with your kin? Or panic anytime something goes wrong?

If any of these things apply to you, OR you just feel you’d like to be more comfortable with your kiln firing, please join us on Saturday, December 7 for our HOW TO FIRE YOUR ELECTRIC KILN WORKSHOP. From 9 to 4, with a lunch break, we’ll be covering all sorts of kiln information – from suggestions on how to load your kiln, troubleshooting, general maintenance issues, and a question/answer session, our goal is to make you more comfortable firing your kiln.

Cost $75 for the class if signed up by November 23. $85 on & after November 24. Clay includes a 75+ page booklet of information.

Fine print details: if you’ve purchased a kiln from Stone Leaf Pottery in the last 2 years, a one-time attendance of this workshop is FREE to you. If you are a teacher, please check with your District Art Coordinator as this class may count as continuing education credits.

If you are unable to attend, please give or sell your seat to a friend, as no refunds will be issued unless we cancel the class.



Thanksgiving Closure

Thanksgiving is so late this year. We’ll be closed the entire weekend, and when we open again, it’ll be December. Wow.

At any rate: Please make a note that Stone Leaf will be closed the Thursday- Monday of Thanksgiving weekend. Please don’t be fooled by our cars in the parking lot. We’ll be here Friday- Sunday counting inventory. If you show up, be prepared to count. Due to the nature of inventory, we CANNOT ring up any sales that weekend. Sorry for any inconvenience.
