Howdy folks and Season's Greetings. I'm happy to announce our partnership with Bloom Ranch of Acton where among other fine items in their reception shop, they will have my work on display and for sale. So if you've missed my annual Studio Sale in November, you can still purchase pieces at Bloom.
Bloom Ranch of Acton (previously Blum's Ranch) is a historical agricultural jewel at the edge on Angeles National Forest which is being preserved and rejuvenated by it's new owners Chris, Barbara and Cate Ziegler.
Us being locals who've gone to Blum's regularly for great produce, honey, and preserves, and to see the enduring Elizabeth Blum, are very pleased to see the ranch being revived with such forward thinking proprietors. We're really wishing them great success. The place is shaping up really nicely in such a short time. It's well worth the drive to experience this pastoral landmark.
On the 'Rexware', the gift shop is limited in space, so if you'd like to see more, just ask. There are more pots in the Bloom storeroom.
Thank you all who came to the sale. I sold a few prime pieces to a few discerning folks.
That makes it all worth it.
My personal favorite was a trade with Sal Vasquez for one of his paintings. Love this piece.
Frankly, I'm glad I can put the studio to rest for the winter.
It's been a busy year (again) here at the Johnson's Ranchito.
Having a full time day job doesn't help.
Hopefully next year we'll have some 'normal' time to relax and take a slower approach to this claymaking deal.
Most probably there will be a 5th annual sale next year as there are still scads of pieces on the shelves.
Feel free to contact me if you'd like to take a look when you're doing your holiday shopping. I can be available for a private sale. I'll suggest you take a look at the website to get an idea of what you have in mind,. The website has been updated to show the sold pieces. www.earthbasedceramics.com
