Ahhh! Salad days at Watershed.

I headed up to Newcastle Maine last weekend to attend one of my favorite fundraisers — the Salad Days Benefit at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts.

If you haven’t made the trek up there, it is well worth it. Every year a resident artist makes 500 plates over three months, which seems like quite a frenzy of plate making to me. Each attendee gets a plate, delicious salads to enjoy off of that plate, music, and more — all set outdoors on the bucolic Watershed grounds. For dessert, there is usually a show of ceramic work at one of the local galleries in the afternoon. This year’s show was at George Mason’s lovely home gallery, featuring his innovative work and that of past Watershed artists.

This year’s plates were made by Sean O’Connell and they were quite lovely. It was difficult to choose which was the most beautiful, but I’m pretty sure I got the one!

(My husband got the second most beautiful one, but i’ll share.)
