The ninth annual Summer Open Studio/Open House show and sale at Prescott Hill Pottery is set for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 15 and 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be plentiful refreshments.

Betsy Levine built her soda kiln and established Prescott Hill Pottery in 2006. Her incised technique and atmospheric "painting" distinguish her high-fire stoneware and porcelain tableware, storage jars and evocative vessels. She will be unloading a kiln-load of new pieces, with serving bowls of all sizes, plates, platters and other experimental items on Friday to be ready for Saturday's visitors.

Prescott Hill Pottery is at 261 Prescott Hill Road, off Route 173. For more information, visit
