Local potter Jody Johnstone will hold her annual holiday kiln opening show and sale Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 28 and 29, from 9 to 4 p.m. at her studio at 135 Webster Road.

Last summer, Johnstone rebuilt her 24-foot long anagama tunnel kiln with the help of master kiln builder Donovan Palmquist and his crew. The original kiln was torn down and the new kiln was rebuilt to Johnstone’s specifications on the footprint of the original kiln. The new kiln is fired twice a year by a crew of four, who work in shifts to keep the kiln stoked with wood for a total of eight days.

On display will be a large selection of work from the new kiln including tableware ranging from bowls, cups and plates; to pitchers, teapots and a wide selection of flower vases and jars. There will be kiln tours and refreshments all weekend.
