Silent Night, 2019 Signature Plate
Silent Night, our 2019 Signature Design by redware artist Kay Shaeff of SpringHouse Peddler. Approximately 9" round, but as each is handmade, expect variation in size and design.
This is the last in this series, as Kay is retiring at the end of this year. In preparation for her retirement, we have stocked a large variety of SpringHouse Peddler holiday and non-holiday plates and will be adding them to the website as quickly as possible.
One of the joys of owning Mooresville Mercantile is the friendships we have developed with traditional artists. Kay and her husband, Bob, were first recognized by the Directory of Traditional American Crafts in 1999, and we first became acquainted at shows in Virginia. Our creative partnership with SpringHouse Peddler began more than five years ago. We spend almost a year developing each signature design, from initial concept to sample plates to final delivery. Kay readily responds to our customers’ desires, such as creating the popular Cotton Boll plate. We’ve shared many stories and ideas sitting on the porch of their stone farmhouse in Pennsylvania. As Kay and Bob move into the next phase of their lives, we wish them well and we know our friendship with this creative couple will continue.
Many of Kay’s Signature Designs for Mooresville Mercantile are available in rug hooking patterns and kits from Counting Sheep Rug Hooking Shop, Florence, Alabama.
