Doing what you love

It was so nice to see Anne Boisvert (of Anne Boisvert Pottery) at the indoor Market on the Green in New London, N.H. As I watched her set up her table, I drooled over the delicate blue and green pottery. I remember meeting her five years ago at a farmer’s market in Newbury, and drooling over her pottery then as well. She happily told me that she was a full-time potter now, and teaching a class at Wellhouse Farm Pottery in Springfield, N.H., on Wednesday night.

Anyone can take a class. You pay a membership fee to use the studio (there are different rates for one month, three months, weekly, etc.) and, as a member, you can take any class you want. Anne’s class is from 6 to 8:30 p.m. She says it is a mixed level class and there are 14 wheels and a kickwheel. You can learn more at http://wellhousefarmpottery.com/classes.html

I don’t have Wednesdays open right now (I’m a softball mom) but I did buy two soup bowls with happy swirls circling the rim. Every time I use them, I’ll think of Anne and her happiness at being able to do what she loves, full time, and share her 10 years of pottery knowledge with others.
