Watershed Auction

For those of you interested in keeping Watershed going--please visit the auction online! All the information is below and the events on June 20th are going to be really fun.

This piece is featured in the online preview auction so check it out! Who knew my work looked so good in woodfire?

Saturday, June 20th   
4 - 7 pm

Please join us at my studio and gallery 
for the Opening Reception and Party in celebration of 

The Watershed Gala Wood Fire Benefit 
Exhibition, Raffle and Auction

We've invited 125 of the best potters from the United States, Canada and Australia to send work
to be fired in the Anagama Wood Kiln in May. Each has generously donated their work to support the
facilities and programs of the Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts.

Watershed is a premier arts center located in Newcastle, Maine. It's mission is to provide both time
and space for artists to work in clay. An international program located in the beautiful coastal 
Boothbay region of Maine, Watershed offers residencies for artists to explore new ideas and 
possibilities within their work. All proceeds from this event will go to help fund the programs at 
Watershed and the construction of Watershed's new kiln facility.

The wood kiln will be opened on Saturday, June 6th. We'll unload the kiln at 9 am so join us for a preview of the work. The exhibition, raffle and auction finale will take place the following week on June 20th.

100% of all sales from the Auction and Raffle 
will go to benefit Watershed!

The On-line Auction

A select group of pieces from the firing will be auctioned on-line beginning June 12th and ending June 20th.
Please visit our auction website at:


The Gala Raffle

100 pots will be raffled off, with each ticket purchaser getting to choose their piece as their number is drawn. We've invited some of the best potters from around the country to participate, so there'll be some wonderful pieces to choose from. Buy a ticket, hear your number, pick a pot! Everyone who purchases a ticket will receive a piece. A "special" piece will be saved for last, going to the person with the 100th number!

The Raffle ticket price is $50.

You do not need to attend to participate! A proxy (a Watershed Board member) will pick a piece for you when your number is called, and we'll send it to you. Tickets may be purchased in advance by emailing me at cgceramics@aol.com or calling the studio at 508-636-6213.
