Visit to Dick & Debbie Cooter's studio 10/19/09
I took Carol Sauvion, the creator of the award-winning PBS series "Craft in America" up to the Arrowhead Region of Minnesota to visit some of our favorite artists and craft-related places on the North Shore. First stop was lunch with Dick and Debbie Cooter - including lunch, and a chance to see Dick's brand new, two-chamber kiln. He expects the first firing to happen in November, and we can't wait to see how it works! Debbie had a rainbow-colored blanket up on her loom the day we stopped in. Carol and I are both still dreaming about the homemade squash soup and savory crackers that Debbie served... and the glorious colors of the north country Fall!
