     With the closing of the physical location of Really Cool Stuff in West Milton, OH, this will be the last installment of our Artist of the Month. But I just could not conclude things without first introducing you to Pamela Ridenour and her beautiful stoneware pottery. Many of our talented artists still have  items here for you to admire and purchase, including Pam.  But items are beginning to disappear quickly, so we encourage you to stop by soon while selection is still good. 


      Creating organic stoneware has been Pamela Ridenour’s second act. Reminiscent of Arts and Crafts pottery, her work is functional, silky, detailed and glazed in calming hues of nature. Look for more of her work at Basil’s on Market in Troy, OH.

     Also, mark your calendar for the Vessels, Vistas and Visions Exhibit (Oct. 9 - Nov. 27) at Troy-Hayner Cultural Center in Troy, OH . Pam will be showing her work along with paintings by Shirley DeLaet and Donna Pierce-Clark.
