On the cool, sometimes rain-sprinkled morning of Saturday Dec. 7, local potters displayed and sold their hand-crafted wares to Christmas shoppers and bargain hunters alike. Given the weather and the early hour, it was a fine turnout on the east patio of the Borrego Art Institute, perhaps even qualifying as a "Throng of Borregans," that is, a group of five or more.

Ginger Dunlap-Dietz offered up one line of ceramics called "pansy rings," a means of displaying flowers without the requirement of being a professional flower arranger. Dunlap-Dietz's soap dish was originally an incense holder, but glazing dripped into and filled the hole, so she made it into a soap dish.

Other familiar potter faces were also present, including Kari Dehli at her pottery wheel, and Gretchen Grawunder with her extensive and eclectic variety of bowls, cups, and flowerpots in every imaginable configuration.

Two unfamiliar faces were the Wifey-Hubby duo Deanna and Shawn, having more fun than should be allowed in selecting a Christmas tree decoration.

All in all, it looked like the ceramic sale was a very successful pre-Christmas event for potters and customers alike.
