National Clay Week Open House at Opal Fire Studios

National Clay Week 2019

As part of National Clay Week you’ll have three days to shop the work of five diverse ceramic artist’s at Rosemary Tobiga’s Opal Fire Studio in West Linn, OR. You’ll be inspired by Rosemary’s lovely studio space and garden, and hopefully find some great ceramic goods for yourself of gifts for others. I won’t be at the show (I’ll be in Charleston, SC planning our upcoming art and yoga retreat), but you’ll be in good hands and I’ll have plenty of work on display.

We create cookies that are paleo (without grain, refined sugar, or dairy) and believe that real food is flavorful without extra additives, sugars, or processed yuck.  We therefore use only the finest ingredients, sourcing local when possible, and avoiding allergens such as gluten, dairy, corn, and soy which are typically found in most baked goods.  But don't worry, we don't EVER skimp on the chocolate chips.

Jeni Lee Art

Portland artist Jeni Lee creates atmospheric paintings using layers of paint and the rain to evoke our northwest environments.

Allie B. Studios

Handcrafted Bronze and Sterling Silver Jewelry designed intuitively to capture and contain narrative within its shape.
