Cache Valley Winter Gift Market December 2 & 3

Taylor's Creek Trail, Kolob Canyon, Zion NP
We're experiencing another spectacular Utah fall. The temperatures have remained mild, and the hills are on fire with the vibrant yellows of aspen and reds of the maples and scrub oak. With days like these it's hard to think that winter is just around the corner, and along with it the holiday season.

I've had a fun summer selling my fused glass designs at our local gardeners' market and participating in Art on the Lawn. Though the summer events are over, there's still one more event I'm participating in to wrap up the year -- the Winter Gift Market.

This day and a half art fair is being held December 2 and 3 at the Bullen Art Center. The market runs from 6 to 9 PM on Friday night, in conjunction with our Gallery Walk, and from 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday. The market hosts a variety of artists, including potters, soap makers, wood workers, fiber artists, and of course, a "glasser" or two.

This market is a great place to find unique handcrafted items for yourself or for gift giving, created by the valley's local artists. I'm please to have been accepted into the market this year. For the next several weeks, you'll find me down in my studio after a full days work at my "day job" crafting functional and beautiful platters, small dishes for soap  or sushi, and jewelry. Of course, I still plan on finding a little time to enjoy the last of our beautiful fall days!
