More News to Come!
When the ancient mother oak fell in the front meadow several years ago, I had her torso thickly sawn, then stickered to dry. Now she lives on as low spooning benches and tables. They are beautiful, sweet reminders of her former life.
When I paint the Barometer Series, I mix glaze colors directly on the studio tabletop. It feels loose and relaxed. To see more of this series, visit http://www.soulestudio.com/melange-one-offs/
I pulled everything out of the front studio. Put back just what I needed. Completely re-configured now. It's much more open, feels new, and suits the next chapter of studio life.
The Citrange Collection currently offers the best-selling Chalk white color, only. While shopping online, you will notice the Cream, Mist and Peat colors have been removed. The Melange Collection is available, as always, in all 10 gorgeous colors.
Check out Placewares online, if you aren’t in the Gualala area. http://www.placewares.com They have a wonderful selection of tabletop pieces, Marimekko, and loads of amazing gifts. Lu and Maynard have a broad selection of Citrange serving pieces in a range of colors, as well. If you don’t see the serving piece you are looking for on the Soule Studio website, contact Placewares: firstname.lastname@example.org
Now is the time to fill in your collection of Citrange - Cream, Mist, Peat, Saffron and Straw. As we sell through our inventory, those colors will be gone forever. When you shop the website, you will see what colors are left, when you click on the color choice for each piece.
We will continue producing the Chalk color only in the Citrange line.

This is a close-up of one of the 7" Plates in the Barometer Series. There are 12 plates currently on the One-Off Melange page, on the studio website: www.soulestudio.com
These 7" Plates are a studio practice of late. The process is a bit like taking my pulse. They are a barometer reading of the moment in which they were created. Each is one-of-a-kind. There will be a few available at the studio sale this Saturday. Image is close-up of plate.
The Doitung Development Project is located on the northern border - Golden Triangle - of Thailand. Under royal initiative, they are achieving their goal of shifting the local economy from practices of opium poppy production to: coffee, vegetable and flower growing; and textile, paper and clay products. The foundation's development practices are based on sustainable use of resources and conservation of the environment.
I visited this area in 2000, and worked with them to bring a selection of leaf-shaped platters to the American market. There were six lovely shapes designed for that project. These leaf platters will be available at the upcoming studio warehouse sale October 26th.
