Beautiful People – Pam Summers and Raymond Rains

Ceramicist Pam Summers and glass artist Raymond Rains have a blueprint for what I want my life to look like – and when I grow up I want to be Pam Summers!


Pam Summers

They have a beautiful home at Eagle Mountain Lake outside of Fort Worth, beautiful artwork, beautiful grounds, beautiful vistas, beautiful studios, beautiful gallery and people. So I guess what I am trying to say is they are beautiful people, making beautiful artwork, that have created a beautiful life.

And this weekend you are invited to visit this wonderland for their Cliff House Studio and Gallery 30th Annual Holiday Open House Exhibition and Sale.



Raymond Rains



If you don’t think I am soaking up everything I can possibly learn from this talented duo, you don’t know me well. (Did you hear me say it is Pam’s 30th Annual Holiday Sale? 30th!) So despite our physical distance, I am so lucky that we currently serve on an artist advisory board together, have served together on artist jury panels, have photographed and drank mezcal together in Guanajuato, took a harrowing bus trip to Dolores Hildago, MX to visit talavera pottery studios and shops, and have shared many (but never enough) al fresco meals.

Please, if you are anywhere near the Fort Worth/Dallas area go see them this weekend, make a day of it and plan on staying for the Raku and Glass Blowing demos, and give them a kiss for me. You will have a great new holiday tradition and will have as much fun shopping as your gift recipient will have receiving. That sounds like a win/win to me!

Not in the area? Road trip out of the question? Pam and Raymond are also kind enough to share their work with us online. And you can get a small glimpse of the loveliness that is Cliff House Studio & Gallery.

You fell in love with Pam, Raymond and Cliff House studio too didn’t you? Why not plan on going back to spend more time in a workshop. And don’t be greedy – Gift Certificates for Workshops make great presents too!
