Rock Creek Pottery

Shows and Events

Though we continue to do the occasional show with favorite pots from Rock Creek, we are not making pots these days, but are concentrating on establishing a new life and place in New Mexico. Hopefully some sunny day we will have sorted out a place to work, a kiln and clay. So far, is has not been all that easy to find a wild and private place close to Santa Fe! Wish us Luck!
