“These cups were created during COVID-19 restricted times.  While choosing books to read or listen to over the winter and spring, I found that the old stories of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters were where comfort was found.  This translated to my artwork in that I found myself going back to old images, old ideas from my own work.  These teacups were originally used in my imagery in 1996 up until about 1999.  My series of work then, called teastory, was all about appreciating the little things in life, and realizing how good things are compared to the experiences of our ancestors.”

We had a great time with Cotillion last night! (From left, Dave Panting, Gerry Strong, and Hugh Scott) They held a captive audience through a downpour of rain and a bit of thunder and lightening, and I’m still humming their tunes this morning. I’m sure we’ll see them Live @ Norton’s Cove again on their next tour.

Our next Live @ Norton’s Cove Event at the Lower Deck is on September 10th, when we welcome David Guy to the stage. David is an artist living in Musgrave Harbour. He is married to our Pastry Chef, Chrys Hogan, and so is a part of our Norton’s Cove family. We’d love to pack the place with live music fans- so make some plans! Reserve a table at the café for supper before the show, or come with a bit of an appetite and enjoy Ted’s Lower Deck menu of small plates.

This Week at Norton’s Cove Studio & Café

The studio is open 10-6 on Saturdays this month, and any other time by chance or appointment. I have accepted a short term position working at the local museum & gallery, but will be back in the studio evenings and weekends to fill online orders and to print spring orders. Duke will be spending some time at the studio too, while I’m away, making a ton of rope mats! You know he likes a chat- please do stop in and say hello when you see the open sign out!

This Week at Norton’s Cove Café

We had an overwhelmingly successful Feast of Saint Valentine event at the Café on the 13th & 14th. In the fall and early winter, it’s easy to feel a bit tuckered out when it comes to thinking about the café and all the work involved trying to make everything run smoothly. We want the business to provide what our customers want, but also it needs to make enough money to pay the bills and enable us to keep going. That can be pretty stressful! But this event in mid-February, when we’ve been feeling refreshed and almost ready for spring to arrive again, reminds us of how much we love what we’re doing, and how much this venue means to the people around us. Honestly, the comments coming back have been very heart-warming. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It really is the nourishment our business needs!
Now that we have completed the downstairs space at the Café, which we call the Lower Deck, and some of the COVID restrictions look like they’ll be relaxing soon all across the country, I’m hoping to line up a new series of Live @ the Lower Deck events. I am looking for professional performers to stand in this spotlight and entertain us. Interested artists should introduce themselves via email and include links to examples of their work.
