Pairs and Pairs of Pears


Cottagewood General Store

As a 'selling' artist, I'm always trying to think ahead as to what will be the next 'popular' item to create and sell. As always, I use one of my favorite mediums, wool. I just started making these adorable little pears just before the 08' holiday season to sell at the Cottagewood General Store' s Holiday Boutique in Deephaven, Minnesota. They were a HUGE HIT! The owner called to let me know I needed to make more. How fun and satisfying was THAT?! Even after the holiday, I'm continuing to make more in different colors and varying sizes.

Check out the Cottagewood General Store, it's a historical building that's in the most adorable section of Minnesota, just 20 minutes from downtown.

  5. Terrific work, Cathy!!! I was inspired by your pears. I was going to send you my gray cashmere sweaters that had moth holes until I saw your pears. Now I want to turn them into cashmere whales. Sorry.
