There is a new artistic opportunity at Grandpa’s Cellar for the apple season this year. Iron Mountain Pottery is excited to announce the “Four-Hands Bowls” project.

The experience of making a bowl on the potter’s wheel is quite satisfying, difficult at first because the process involves centering the clay and keeping it on the wheel, forming and shaping the bowl, and ending up with a one-of-a-kind vessel. It takes a lot of patience.

Now, the making of a bowl has become a better possibility with the “Four-Hands-Bowl” concept. Edd Donald is offering the chance to make your own bowl using your two hands and his two.

Donald, a 33 year resident of El Dorado County, retired in 2006 after 37 years teaching K-eighth grade students.

During his tenure at Pioneer School, he and his classes created several large murals depicting California history. These murals are displayed throughout the school.

He has also incorporated the four-hands method for making bowls in his grandchildren’s classrooms.

Iron Mountain Pottery is owned and operated by Donald and his wife, Sharon, also a retired teacher who taught in the Gold Oak and Pollock Pines school districts. Their functional ware and garden art is on display for sale exclusively at Grandpa’s Cellar during weekends in October.

Visit the Scheuner’s orchard at Grandpa’s Cellar and make your own bowl. Give it a whirl — literally.

Grandpa’s Cellar is located at 2360 Cable Road in Camino, Apple Hill Ranch No. 17.

For further information call Pat at 530-647-6212 or drop by between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends in October.
