west of the Big Rock...

South of Calgary for half an hour, then drive due west—past the Big Rock (1) and fields of rolling prairie foothills—straight towards the Rockies… It’s a lovely drive down to Black Diamond from Calgary.

My first collection of work is now on show at Bluerock Gallery—so proud to be joining the talented artists and friends already there.

Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow: Orange & Red Slurpee. Pinched porcelain vase. 17.5 cm/ 7” tall. Christine Pedersen. 2015.

If you’re making the trip, I strongly recommend you set-off early and call into Chinook Meadery, just west of Okotoks. Loads of lovely honey-related products, honeycomb to sample, and a live hive doing actual bee-business right there in the shop.

Top tip: the honey ganache is amazing on bread and cookies, or straight off your finger whilst still sitting in their car-park.

We are working our way into the case of mead we brought back, haven’t drunk them all yet so we can’t elect a champion. So far: six thumbs way up!

(1) To be accurate, the Big Rock is called the Okotoks Erratic:
