Some Very Sad News:
The ceramic creations shaped by her hands mirrored the beauty of the natural world around her to the delight of her fans at the farmers' market and beyond. 
Sadly, long-time market seller Selma Krones of Dove Pottery passed away Friday, Feb. 20 after a brief illness. 
Selma Dove Krones  1941-2015
Her smiling face and elegantly crafted pottery lit up her corner of the farmers' market. We will greatly miss her warm presence and joyful spirit. We are still in shock at the suddenness of her passing.
Selma loved the farmers' market and her market family of sellers and customers. It was her wish that her grandson, Jordan Campbell, carry on with Dove Pottery and remain a market vendor. Jordan has learned from - and created pottery with - Selma for years and recently has made many of the pieces displayed at the Dove Pottery booth. He plans to return to market with a selection of pottery on the market's main season opening day in April.
