Peak leaves and great destination

If you are considering a drive up north to see the leaves this weekend, I recommend you stop by the Ripple River Gallery, near Aitkin, MN on Saturday, October 2nd. It’s about a 2-hour drive north of the Twin Cities.

The gallery is hosting a Fall Open House & Raku Firing! You can find details here. There is also a wonderful woodworking show on display in the gallery.
You will see Mille Lacs Lake on the way…

… and many colorful leaves at their peak

You might see the fearless deer that were grazing in Bob & Amy’s yard on Wednesday.

You’ll experience the warm hospitality of the owners, Bob Carls, wood turner, and Amy Sharpe, weaver and gallery manager.

I dropped off  a few runners and pillows, including this new rabbit pillow.

I use the materials and techniques of the Japanese art of katazome (paste resist stencil dyeing) to capture my experience of nature. My work celebrates daily meetings with the wild birds, plants, and lake breezes of my local urban surroundings.

  1. This is a really gorgeous pillow, Kit! — the overall design & the painterly quality of your dye technique.
