Northern Lights Lamp Show at Clay Bay Pottery

Clay Bay Pottery will host their 10th annual Northern Lights Lamp Show and reception featuring fine art and refreshments on Saturday, August 21 from 10 am – 5 pm. The show will offer new lamps with old favorite themes such as Jeanne Aurelius’s Ephraim scenes and floral motifs. David Aurelius will present lamps featuring fantasy sailboats, unique stencil designs, and sunrise/sunset motifs.

Peder Hegland, a Sartel, Minnesota potter whose work is a staple at Clay Bay, will offer two lamps featuring fish and leaf motifs. Crafted of Georgia clay in rich brown tones, his work is inspired by his life on the Mississippi.

The show will also feature paintings by New Mexico and Door County artist Sandra Place and Madison artist Laura Meddaugh. Place’s pastel works reflect her passion for the beauty and vitality of the natural environment. A summer resident of Door County, her work celebrates the pleasure and joy she finds in the woodlands and water of Door County, along with her concern for our changing climate.

A painter for 30 years, Meddaugh’s work is new to Clay Bay this year. Her recent work focuses on colorful acrylics and features fanciful neighborhoods and patchwork quilt fields populated with flying cats and cows, strutting chickens, and dogs running wild.

The gallery is located on Highway 42, south of Ellison Bay. For more information call 920.854.5027.
