Ottawa has a new pottery shop, just one block from the Parkdale Market! The grand opening is tonight, to coincide with Hintonburg's first Thursday Gallery walks. Called Hintonburg Pottery, it's located at 78 Hinton Street North, in a space shared with Credible Edibles. I've just taken some of my pots there and am thrilled to have joined many other potters whose work is on display in this neighbourhood shop. Ginger will be opening the store Monday to Saturday from 12-6 p.m. during the summer.
Many years ago I used to sell to a store called Crossroads, on Wellingston Street near Holland. It had a wonderful assortment of handcrafted items including lots of pottery. The space is now occupied by Collected Works, a wonderful independent book store and coffee shop. They have expanded their space considerably and are renovating it to accommodate the many events that happen there in addition to selling books. I'm happy to say they are currently selling a selection of my pottery too. Somehow, coffee cups and teapots and wine goblets seem to be a nice compliment to books!
