A partnership of four--Rodney and Pamela Newton, Paige Adkins and Robert Ayers--have just opene(i, a new showroom next to the studio spaces where they have been working for several years. Their work is high quality and includes, along with free .dtchen ware and planters, small flutes and animals. Prices range from $1to $40.
