Leaf Peepers !

October has been a beautiful month here in Maine.  Its getting crisp outside and we've had a few cozy nights with a fire which means: It's time to fire up the studio!  We've had an epic 5 months with the glass studio down this year.  This month has been all about resting (mushroom hunting),  gearing up the shop and getting a palette together for fall orders. I'm trying to spend more time on the lathe, but mostly I've been destroying a crappy blade on my saw (just got a really fine fresh one for glass to replace it with) by doing mosaic tile work .....
taken out behind the shop. We refer to this as "pond-gazing"...

There has been plenty of moisture this fall and so it's proving to be an excellent leaf peeper season. According to the foliage report northern Maine has full color right now, and leaves are only just starting to drop in our area. If your just heading out on your tour right now, Midcoast is on the verge of full color. These next couple weeks should prove to be fantastic. If you time it right you'll not only get a glass blowing demonstration out of us (please call in advance), but you can also check out the pumpkin regatta in Damariscotta. If however you are reading this post in November.....Don't feel bad! this photo

was taken last winter of the river in front of our place after the leaves had dropped........................
