13th Annual Arizona State University Art Museum Ceramic Studio Tour

This was Indigo Street Pottery’s twelfth year as host site for the Arizona State University Art Museum annual free, self-guided ceramic studio tour. Studio ceramists across the Valley opened their studios to hundreds of visitors for the 2-day tour. The weather was perfect and we had a great turnout. Many thanks to everyone who came by!


Our guest artists this year were Jesse Armstrong, Tiffany Bailey, and Joan Waters. Along with finished work for sale by all five of us, we demonstrated techniques we use.

This has been a great winter for snow peas! Our hedge of them is 20 feet wide and they have been very prolific!

It’s spring in the Sonoran desert!

Left photo: The peach trees are blooming (rear, pink-flowered) and some of the winter vegetables are going to seed. The center stalk with tiny yellow and white flowers is a carrot going to seed. We staked it, letting it take its time to produce seeds.

Right photo: The spiky, little carrot seeds up close, still green and immature.

The Chinese Cabbage, a loose-leaf cabbage, is also going to seed. The green, twig-like sticks on the stems below the yellow flowers are immature seed pods.

Left photo: After two years of great production, the Lacinato (AKA Dragon) Kale is finally going to seed. The tiny broccoli-like flowerbuds are emerging on the central stalk. Dragon Kale is a biennial (two-year lifespan). What a champion!
