Thanksgiving and Thomas Earing – 11.27.13

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! But first, let us take a day to reflect and give thanks for the many blessings bestowed to each of us. Earthen Artisan House will be closed on Thanksgiving Day to do just that, celebrate and spend time with our families. We will be back with our doors open and plenty of tasty beverages and treats to celebrate Black Friday and Small Business Saturday! We’d like to encourage you to shop local this holiday season and support the many small businesses that America is built on. With many shops and restaurants, all locally owned and run, Old Colorado City is a great place to spend the afternoon and find unique gifts for everyone on your list this year!

During this week of gratitude Earthen Artisan House is continually thankful for endless blessings. We are grateful for all that took place for EAH to go from dream to reality, the beautiful state of Colorado and its endless colors and experiences, each of our many friends and family, the timeless brick walls that keep us warm, delicious foods for our bellies, our fabulous customers and supporters, and our incredibly talented artisans.

Speaking of talented artisans – Thomas Earing is one of many who graces EAH with his incredible talents. If you’ve visited us before, you’ve no doubt seen a piece or two of his. Working in wood and stone, Earing creates impressive carvings with just a chainsaw. His work is incredible. EAH showcases carvings of small pine trees, various forest animals, a large imitation of Earing’s own dog, and more.

This Sunday, December 1st, Earing will be joining EAH in our courtyard with his chainsaw, demonstrating how he transforms a basic log into a beautiful piece of art. You won’t want to miss this! He will begin carving at noon and will work until 5pm.
