Kristi Downing, a well-known artist from our area, passed away the week of December 1, 2013. This edition of Artist Open House featuring Kristi originally aired in October of 2011. In addition to all that is presented about her in this feature, she was a long-time participant in the Crossing Borders Studio Tour.
Kristi Downing’s studio is set back from Lake Superior in a sheltered grove of trees. This is where she creates her raku pottery. Each piece distinctive, no two alike. WTIP’s Jay Andersen recently visited Kristi for another edition of Artist Open House.
We thank Greg Nichols for sharing additional photos of Kristi, taken in July of 2013 at North House Folk School.
