Mother’s Day weekend marks the 28th annual St. Croix Valley Pottery Tour, but due to physical distancing guidelines, the three day event has moved online. Potter Sandra Daulton Shaughnessy says she’ll miss the socializing and festive atmosphere, but she still plans to get her ceramic fix. She’s going to be perusing potters’ websites and she has even set up a couple of appointments with potters who will — via FaceTime — show her their latest wares and help her make her selection. The tour goes “live” at 10 a.m. Friday and runs through Sunday. You can find the directory of online shops here.
