Walter Slowinski holds solstice sale

BRATTLEBORO -- Potter Walter Slowinski will host a Solstice and Seconds Sale at Orchard Street Pottery on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. His studio is tucked in a corner of an old 1840’s barn at 658 Orchard St. Slowinski fires his ware to 2450 degrees Fahrenheit using wood scraps obtained from a local mill.

Slowinski makes functional ware such as mugs, bowls, and pitchers, appropriate for daily use. He particularly enjoys making teapots, using found branches to form the handles, one of which was recently accepted into a show at Baltimore Clayworks; 100 Teapots VI.
