Studio tours are very popular this time of year. It's a great way to come up and see the fall colours, get some special gifts for Christmas and see the incredible array of talent on display throughout the north.

One of our favourite stops is the Homestead Pottery in Haliburton.

Matt and Lisa create beautiful pottery all fired on site in a wood burning kiln Matt built. You can see more pictures of their work by clicking here.

We always pickup a few pieces to add to our collection. 

You may be wondering about the holes in the bowl. This is a bowl for rinsing your vegetables, very clever.

The Haliburton Studio tour runs October 5th and 6th and then again October 12th and 13th. Do a google search to get directions. Make your plans now and plan to stay overnight at a local B&B. It's the best way to see the fall colours and local artists at a leisurely pace.

Hope to see you up here.

    Tell Mary that I think I found another bowl like she and I talked about. I have set it aside for her. Now we must find a few more LOL. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
