Workin' at The Mill this week.

When I first started working on Granville Island, I worked at
Blackberry Books, I think I was maybe 19. I used to love going to
Bob Kingsmill's shop, watching him create his wonderful pieces, and chatting. When Keith and I started seeing each other, many years later, I commented I thought his work had a similar sensibility to Bob's and found that he was a fan too! It was such an honour to be asked to join the shop in 2004, and we feel so lucky to be a part of it.

The first week of the month is our week at the Kingsmill Studio Shop. The store is shared by four potters, Bob Kingsmill who has been on Granville Island since it began 30 years ago (!), Don Hutchinson, Darlene Nairne, and Keith. Each of them minds the shop and makes work there for one week of each month. Now that I am making some pieces I have them in Keith's space and I help out at the shop during his week.

We'll be at The Kingsmill Studio, 1620 Johnston St, from Sept 1-7, and the shop is open 10-5 every day-sometimes later. Please drop by and say "Hi!", watch some pots being made, and check out our newest work.
