Swan Coach House Summer Invitational


In 1965 a group of women founded the Forward Arts Foundation of Atlanta and converted the carriage house of The gorgeous Swan House Estate into an art gallery and restaurant. We are happy to announce that a few of our potters at Cabbagetown Clay and Glassworks have been handpicked to participate in their Summer Swan Invitational. The Summer Swan Invitational runs from July 6th to August 10th; Tue – Sat 10-4pm. This show features contemporary Southern Pottery and Handmade Objects, in addition our pottery from Cabbagetown Clay and Glassworks! Come out to the Swan House and be smothered in southern charm, have lunch and enjoy the show.

Custom Painted Gnomes For Your Garden

We are very appreciative to all the Atlanta Artists who helped us have such a great auction and ALL the garden gnomes they painted, modified or sculpted found garden homes! We will be moving forward with the planning for community art therapy workshops at our next meeting. If you missed the auction and wished you hadn’t missed the opportunity to get a gnome for your garden, just know you can order a custom painted gnome at any time. You pick the colors and we’ll paint one up for you. Here is one gnome example of custom orders that just came out of the kiln recently. Thanks again for everyone’s support!!


Gnomes in the Hood


Tucked into a corner of the garden amid the tulips, the brightly-colored gnomes guard the pink and white azaleas and blue “glory of the snow” in the neighborhood garden– but I get ahead of myself.

On Saturday, May 11, from 4:00 – 7:30 pm, the Cabbagetown Clay and Glass Works (CCGW) and Garden*Hood, are making it easy to own your own Gnomes in the Hood.  Enjoy the sights and scents of spring plants, sip a cocktail, and view garden gnomes of all varieties.  The event will feature one-of-a-kind gnomes (or “gnomesses”) created by 25 local artists (painters, sculptors) who have joined forces with CCGW’s artists.  The unique gnomes will be auctioned off by silent auction with light hors d’oeuvres and cocktails in the luscious flowering space of Garden*Hood, a neighboring plant and garden center.  Gnomes in the Hood will benefit CCGW, a non-profit, cooperative, artist-run studio, and to support their community outreach.   CCGW members will be presenting free workshops to local transitional housing programs for women and for veterans.

The Gnomes in the Hood fundraiser coincides with Garden*Hood’s Mother’s Day Bouquet Buffet, a yearly tradition where individuals can create the perfect container garden for mom. Staff of the independent retail garden center set up a “buffet” of the supplies you’ll need as well as a nursery full of plants and pottery from which to choose.  Kids of all ages are welcome.  The Bouquet Buffet is open 10am – 4pm on Saturday and Sunday, May 11 and 12.

It is easy to attend both events, as well as to shop in the Cabbagetown Clay and Glass Works’ studio, since they are located across the street from each other on the corner of Boulevard and Woodward Avenues, between I-20 and Memorial Drive.  CCGW is at 588 Woodward Avenue, 30312 and Garden*Hood is at 353 Boulevard SE, 30312.

CCGW pottery member, Heather Colbaugh, had a movie prop buyer come into the CCGW studio gallery and buy ALL her work for the Movie Prisoners! We sure are glad the movie industry is getting bigger in Atlanta 🙂 They came in asking for some whimsical pottery and Heather’s work fit the bill. They bought her chicken planter, chicken plate, owl vase, Llama pot, piggy pot, fox plate, squirrel candle holder, pottery cupcakes, and a small bust of Frida Kahlo. Heather later found out that the Llama pot was everyone’s favorite on set. She continues to have fantasies that Hugh Jackman will be showing up to the studio any day now to purchase her latest design, the kitty cat pitcher. She is also working long days in the studio to get her work back into the gallery and continues to be thankful for that fateful day. Prisoners the movie comes out Sept 2013, don’t blink during the dream sequence!
