20 years of open studio

 this weekend marks the 20th anniversary of vermont open studio weekend.  we took a couple years off when we moved from arlington to dorset, but i think this is the 16th or 17th year for us.  it's a great event.  there are over 250 artists across vermont who will be opening their studios to the public saturday and sunday, 10-5 both days.  look for the yellow signs.    there will be a lot to see at our shop:  kit will be there with her handmade jewelry, penny viscusi will have her locally inspired pastels, sam's metalwork, will's banjos and for one reason or another, a large collection of our furniture, both completed and in process.  there are two pieces left from our winter show, the mirror and the bureau, an unusual 11' copper top table, waiting to be delivered to connecticut next week, and the square mahogany coffee table in the previous blog post.

 this figured cherry bureau measures about 36 wide x 39 high by about 23" deep.  all items will have special 'open studio special' reduced prices.

and the mirror has a stand from the show or can be hung directly on a flat wall.

we'll also have a claro walnut slab table with the rebar base with six chairs.  we are planning to have that all finished friday so that it can be delivered to the guilford, vermont welcome center where it will be on display for the summer months.
 and a copper top porch table which is a new concept for us .. above is an early view, before the copper was nailed on and the base completed ...  this post will be updated with new photos as we approach the opening bell saturday morning ... come on by if you're in the area .. this saturday and sunday 10-5 both days.

Dan -- I love it that you are exhibiting the Walnut table at the Guilford Welcome Center. It will be seen by TONS of people, and hopefully, will lead to inquiries. Good luck with the Open Studio. Wish I were going to be there!
