The Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail members know how to keep the annual open studios weekend fresh each year. In addition to nine host studios in Northfield, Shelburne Falls, Greenfield, Hadley, Amherst, and Pelham, there are nine guest potters this weekend (April 27-28, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.) Providing an ideal opportunity to learn about various styles and techniques for turning mud, aka clay, into functional and sculptural objects, the 9th tour edition also shows off settings as different as night and day. Among the host studios are Francine Ozereko in Pelham, James Guggina in Florence, Stephen Earp in Shelburne Falls, Tom White in Northfield, and Donna McGee in Hadley. Among the guests are Sam Taylor, Adero Willard, Hayne Bayless, Mara Superior, Kristen Kieffer, Daniel Bellow, and Todd Wahlstrom. Visit www.asparagusvalleypotterytrail.com for a printable brochure and map. Note: Angela Fina is a guest at White’s but is not listed on the brochure-map.
