The Craft Council Gallery’s annual Christmas show, Comfort and Joy, opens tomorrow. Two rooms of beautiful, fun, elegant craft by a veritable oodle of artists. Opening time is an hour earlier than usual, at 1:00, presumably to account for all the extra food people tend to bring to this one. My famous whipped shortbread cookies will be on offer. (And a teapot.) Come on down!

My name is Maaike Charron, and I'm a potter in St. John's, Newfoundland. I started fiddling around with pottery in summer 2006, when I was told volunteering in the local clay studio would get me free studio time. I mostly taught myself, spending a lot of time poring over books, magazines and websites, and occasionally pestering the more advanced (but very helpful) potters around me with questions. After about two years, I decided I'd gotten good enough to go into business for myself. This blog, started after my first big craft fair, was created to document the process of becoming a wondrously succesful craftsperson. (Or it will document How Not To Do It. We'll see.)
