Accompanying this picture of #17 Front St. Briggs Shore posted these words on the Briggs Shore Ceramics facebook page on December 31st 2019: “This is the day. This is the place. Tonight I get the keys to my very own pottery studio. From this tiny building on this blustery and rainy evening, I will begin to fully live my dream. Happy New Year everyone. May 2020 bring us every good thing we hope for.” – Briggs Shore New Year’s Eve 2020.

It took a couple months to get things moved in and set up, and Briggs opened for a weekend in early March before the state shut-down of non-essential businesses in Washington hit. Since that time she has been doing studio work and beefing up her online store to help manage the shut down time of her studio and retail space.

Born and raised in Iowa, Briggs enjoyed working in pottery throughout her high school years. After high school she pursued degrees in Interior Design and Integrated Studio Art at Iowa State University, graduating in 2007.

After getting her degrees Briggs worked and looked at pottery as a continuing hobby. Then a friend promoted her participate in a ‘Pop-Up Craft Show’ in 2015 and the direction of her life and career changed. Briggs decided to become a professional potter (and waitress to pay the bills).

Not one to let time waste Briggs dove full bore into life as a potter. She became resident artist in pottery at the Ceramics Center in Cedar Rapids Iowa from January thru April 2016, moved to Whidbey in July 2016 to take up as a Studio Assistant at Cook on Clay in Coupeville and then became artist in residence at Penn Cove Pottery where she continues to be represented. Also a member of Whidbey Working Artists, in just 5 years after that ‘Pop-Up Craft Show’ changed her course Briggs has achieved her dream to have her own studio. We’re lucky it’s right here in Coupeville on Front St.!

Landing in Coupeville is part and parcel to effort, opportunity and a draw to creative community for Briggs. We’re not surprised Whidbey won out as a home and the place to bring a dream to fruition.

“There’s a really vibrant art community on Whidbey I feel really fortunate to be a part of it. I’m looking forward to being a place where people can get an up-close view of how pottery is made, and am excited to bring more art into downtown Coupeville.” – Briggs Shore 

The Briggs Shore ceramics ‘style’ is simple, sleek and functional. She describes her style as Midcentury Modern, Scandinavian, and Contemporary West Coast. Using her background in design her ‘instinct’ in the studio is to make functional dishes. She marks herself as a proponent of simple and modern handmade ceramics. All her work is durable enough to use every day. They are dishwasher and microwave safe “just like any ceramic dishes you may have in your home now”.

“I’m influenced by my professional training and my love of Scandinavian design. It’s important to me to create pieces that are a joy to hold and use and will make parts of your day a little more special.” – Briggs Shore

It’s a delight to have a pottery studio and potter living on Front St. again. For many years Jan McGregor of Jan McGregor Studio lived and threw pottery in her building at #19 Front St. (next door to where Briggs is now). Since finishing her dream home and studio nearby several years ago, Jan now sells fine Japanese antiques out of her building and no longer throws. The antiques are a love Jan acquired while studying pottery under a master in Japan early in her ceramics career. Image Credit: Jan McGregor Studio

Some things change in Coupeville but (always) parts of it come back around to be the same. We have a potter living and throwing on Front St.

We welcome Briggs to town and look forward to the day we can all flood Front St. to enjoy her studio and the rest of our wonderful Front St. retail businesses forced to close right now.

As a bonus Briggs and her fiancé Patrick (head baker at Coupeville’s Little Red Hen Bakery) live in the apartment above her ceramics studio and store. Nothing better than a quick commute and being part of our small but mighty waterfront. Short walk to work and a vibrant work community for both of them.

We have a lot to be thankful for in Coupeville and having a new business is a just one of those things. For a small town of small businesses (who work hard to be solid and whole heartedly serve) Coupeville is doing pretty well.

Located in #17 Front St. Briggs Shore Ceramics is in a circa 1909 building built by Jacob Straub, a blacksmith by trade, for the law office of Judge Lester Still . The building has seen many businesses in the 111 years since Judge Still and we’re thrilled to see Briggs Shore Pottery settle in and bring a new era to this sweet buildings!

It’s been enlightening hearing the comments and thoughts of parent’s who are home schooling right now. Most wonderful has been the number of great ideas and smart habits they’re working into the schedules, not to mention the exclamations that ‘teachers are underpaid’ (there’s lots of THAT comment).

Most parents and some grandparents will know about these videos but there’s a lot of us, some with kids at home and some without, who have no idea how many and how creative learning videos are today.

We wish everyone the best in their ‘stay home’ homeschooling efforts. Here’s some of the searches and videos that we watching while surfing the subjects (for 2 1/2 well spent hours).


1st Grade Math – 5+mins

More 1st Grade Math Videos – short to long

2nd Grade Math – 5+mins

More 2nd Grade Math Videos – short to long

Groupings with music? Who knew?

More from Numberock

Math videos for 3rd Grade

Math videos for 4th Grade

You get the idea. Once on youtube, search the grade level in the search bar and poof there’s a video (or 100).


Looking at the science videos was a blast.

Especially liked this one for not needing a lot of ingredients that require shopping or scratching your head thinking ‘where can I get THAT?’


More science videos – short and long


GOT SUCKED INTO THIS while on the ‘Science videos for kids’ page – it’s 14+mins and pretty fantastic.

This event from 2017 features 3 new US domino records: largest domino field, largest domino structure, and largest overall domino project in America. 19 builders from 5 countries spent 7 days (over 1,200 combined hours) building the Incredible Science Machine.

More dominos videos LOL

Search anything on youtube. Search ‘homeschooling advice’, subjects and grades, etc., and lots will come up. Note: We are not necessarily advertising for them only in that it’s an easy search for ANYTHING.


One search we liked was the virtual travel search. There is a lot to learn from travel.  We started by traveling to China with the Panda videos.

More travel videos for kids

During the travel videos we got stuck in the National Geographic channel for kids. Specifically their Explorer Academy. Very cool.

More from National Geographic

BTW – we’re betting most people reading this grew up with Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom. As we watched videos today we recalled just how graphic Wild Kingdom was. And well, yes, you can find those online too. There’s 323 of them. Good luck.


Moving along we were caught by the StoryTime Online channel while searching ‘reading with kids’. The Screen Actors Guild produces these and you can see actors and actresses you know read from kids books. This was a fun rabbit hole.

Went with Arnie the Donut first for obvious reasons (craving donuts).

Then on to Harry the Dirty Dog read by Betty White

More StoryTimeOnline videos


Being as Whidbey has some of the greatest artists in the state of Washington and we’ll bet the county, we had to search the ‘art projects for kids’ videos. Suffice to say there’s no disappointment there.

More from Art for Kids Hub

More from Easy Kids Craft

More art projects for kids

Art projects for teens

Searching through art we came across an artist who offered up his channel for all those staying home during the pandemic, along with many artists helping people understand the processes of drawing, painting and sculpting. LAST RABBIT HOLE for the day.

This channel has A LOT. Trees is the choice for this post.

More from Drawing and Painting – The Virtual Instructor

Washington enough, we found a Latte Art tutorial in the ‘art tutorial’ search.

More ‘art tutorial’ videos


What can we say, there’s a lot of fantastic videos on physics. The channel for the trailer below is amazingly comprehensive. Basically there’s physics and everything and that Crash Course covers it.

More from Crash Course

More from MIT Lectures with Walter Lewin (calculus based physics)

More assorted Physics videos

Well, it’s past lunch time and the 2 1/2 hours surfing educational videos has be very interesting, enlightening and fun. It’s time for lunch and then to make some calls and texts inquiring how our members, family and friends are doing.

We wish each of you reading this best as we navigate the ‘stay home’ virus closures. If you’re bored check in with loved ones and friends in other towns and states. If you need take out, want to shop local online, need to know if a shop will do curb side pick up or delivery or just want to know who’s open in Coupeville visit our ‘What’s Open in Coupeville‘ page. The page is updated daily.

Be well, kind and share your resourcefulness if, when and where you can.

This, our celebratory blog piece about the grant and distribution, includes images and links to the history of many of the buildings and a hearty thanks to all those who worked hard to have the preservation grants brought to the Reserve and our historic town. We include old images of the buildings as a testament to the years they’ve stood and the importance of historic preservation.
