The Shirt Factory Chronicles continue with this piece on Clay Concepts Pottery!

An artist never stops discovering new techniques,
said potter Dolores Thomson, owner of Clay Concepts Pottery Studio & Gallery in room 312 of The Shirt Factory.
“It’s a continual learning process,” she said.
Lately, she’s been mastering a new decorative decal
technique that she plans to demonstrate at a
workshop at her studio later this year.
She paints or stencils a design on newsprint using a
glaze base.
She then cuts out the design and places it face-
down on the pottery piece, and rubs a wet sponge
on the back of the newspaper to transfer the design
to the pottery, like a decal, before firing it.
“I like to challenge myself doing these things, as
well as to pass it along to my students,” she said.
Teaching is the primary source of income for
Thomson, a potter for several decades.
“Teaching is a way for me to be able to sustain a
studio,” she said.

Some students have studied with her long term,
while others for shorter periods of time.
“I have a core group of regulars – maybe six or
seven,” she said.
Students learn the whole process from molding the
clay to firing and finishing a piece.
Teaching enables her to pursue the career that she
loves without traveling the craft show circuit to sell
her work.
“It’s a hard way to make a living,” she said, referring
to the craft show circuit.
Before opening her own studio in 2004, Thomson
studied and taught pottery at Skidmore College at
Saratoga Springs.
“During that time my husband encouraged me that I
should open my own studio,” she said.
Thomson is among the longer-term tenants at
The Shirt Factory, at the corner of Lawrence and Cooper
streets in Glens Falls.

“The rent is affordable,” she said. “Also, for me it
was close to home.”
Flexibility of hours was an advantage when she first
opened, and was mom to three school-age children.
“It was a way for me to make my own hours and be
home for the kids.”

Bakery experience preferred but not necessary. This job is an early morning position (2am to 3am early). We will train the right person. Our mixers are responsible for the amazing process which turns milled wheat and water into wonderful naturally-leavened breads. You must be clean, dependable, motivated, organized and reasonably able at math. Physical strength is a necessity as lifting is required (50 pound bags of flour and pulling bread doughs out of mixing bowls). Please send your resume to [email protected] or come in and fill out an application in person. We are very busy this time of year but we will try to make some time for you when you come in.

Another great profile of another great Shirt Factory artist!

In retirement from the Children’s Department
at Crandall Public Library, Adelaide Leibold is
channeling the spirit of youngsters that she
worked with for 30 years in her encore career
as an abstract painter.
“I think we lose some of that as we grow up,”
she said. “So, I’m glad that I found it again. I’m
just so happy that I found it in my art.”
At this point in her life, Leibold, who shares
Suite 311 on the third floor of The Shirt Factory
with two other artists, is able to produce art for
art’s sake.
“I have the privilege of not being a starving
artist,” she said. “I more or less paint for
myself. If someone likes it, I do sell a painting.”
Leibold paints in abstract style.
“I’m more expressing what I feel is there,”
versus a landscape painter who paints what is
actually there, she said.

She enjoys using color and texture as mediums
of self-expression.
Leibold had worked in pen-and-ink for many
years, and had illustrated a cook book, when
she began taking painting lessons around 2014
with Joan Reid, who teaches at The Shirt
Factory, at the corner of Lawrence and Cooper
streets in Glens Falls.
“So, I never used color much before that,” she
said. “I was always afraid to go further.”
Around 2017, Reid had a space open in her
studio, and Leibold took it.
“it’s just wonderful to have a place of your own
that you can go to any time,” she said.
When Leibold takes a break from painting, she
strolls the building, a former garment factory,
to get a cup of tea and chat with other artists.

She belongs to several artist groups, and most
recently was accepted as a member of the
Guild of Adirondack Artists,
Leibold offers advice to fledgling artists.
“Get personal satisfaction from it. That’s first,”
she said. “Be open to anything. Don’t hold
back.”
Artists should not be afraid to express
themselves, even if others are skeptical of the
style.
“When you’re putting yourself out there
creatively, it can be intimidating,” she said.
“Love what you do.”

Once again sharing one of the profiles written about our wonderful Shirt Factory neighbors. Come check this place out!

Close2URHeart, a stainless-steel jewelry
design and manufacturing firm at The Shirt Factory
has custom-designed two necklaces to
be sold exclusively at The 9/11 Memorial
Museum in New York City. “We will be shipping
them out this month,” said Wenlee Fei, co-owner
with her husband, Wells.
One necklace features the “Never Forget”
theme, and the other pays tribute to rescue
dogs. The contract came about through a recent
wholesale trade show, one of about eight that
the couple attends annually.
“We were very honored and humbled – very
moved – that they entrusted us with this
important project,” Fei said.
About 95 percent of their sales of necklaces,
bracelets and ear rings is wholesale, primarily
to museum and natural attraction gift shops.

The National Park Service is one of their larger
customers.
The name – Close 2 UR Heart – is emblematic of
their philosophy to design jewelry that fits with
a customer’s passion, not just looks nice with
an outfit.
“Everything starts with a sketch,” Fei said.
The design is laser cut from stainless steel, a
durable, hypoallergenic metal.
The couple, formerly of New Jersey, started the
business designing jewelry depicting sea life,
one of their vacation passions.
“Every city we go to, if there is an aquarium, we
always visit,” she said, adding that they are avid
snorkelers.
Later, they diversified their offerings to
Adirondack recreational pursuits that they
enjoy, such as hiking, kayaking and canoeing.

They designed “The Journey” bracelet at the
start of the COVID-19 pandemic to raise money
for hunger relief.
“Our store was closed. Most of our retailers,
their stores were closed,” Fei said.
So, they designed the bracelet and offered it for
sale online, with 100 percent of the profit
contributed to Feeding America, a national
network of food bank, food pantry and meal
sharing programs.
“To date we have provided more than 15,000
meals,” she said. “One dollar is ten meals.”
Originally, they envisioned it being a temporary
project, but the time frame is now open ended.
“As long as people want to have them, we will
keep making them.” The couple started the business
about 10 years ago, after working in graphic design
for a pharmaceutical marketing agency in New York
City. Four years ago, they moved the business from
their home to The Shirt Factory, at the corner
of Lawrence and Cooper streets in Glens Falls.
“As most everyone knows, its very hard to
separate the business part from the personal
part (when working from home),” Fei said.
They are in the process of moving from the first
floor to more spacious quarters in Studio 310
on the third floor.

I am not saying this is the best gluten-free vegan bread in the world ... but I AM saying it is (easily) the best gluten-free vegan bread I have ever had.

It is both crusty and flavorful. We do not have it available just yet but we will be making this bread for use in our cafe when we re-open.

And, Italian food lovers ... as a teaser ... brown rice fucilli, our organic scratch-made sauce, gluten-free vegan sawsage crumbles and vegan cheese ... a big bowl served up with gluten-free garlic bread ... can't you just taste it? I have and I am beyond excited to offer a selection of our new GF Italian Bowls to you in about a month when we re-open the cafe.

Our Story

Rock Hill began in the Greenwich farmhouse of its founders, Michael and Wendy London, in 1986. We have been producing handmade naturally-leavened hearth-baked breads and biscotti ever since. My brother, Josh, and I moved the wholesale bakery to Moreau in 1994 and then I opened Rock Hill Cafe in Glens Falls in 2003. I decided to put the bakery and cafe together in January of 2019 and we left our two locations to open up our all-new 100% VEGAN bakery/cafe at 18 Curran Lane in Glens Falls right behind the amazing Shirt Factory (home to over a hundred artists).

Our breads have been used at some of NYC’s finest (Lutece, Aureole, Lespinasse, Le Bernadin, Balducci’s, Union Square Greenmarket, just to name a few). Vogue’s Jeffrey Steingarten called us the “paragon of purism.” The NY Times’ Mimi Sheraton said we bake “the best Jewish Rye east of the Mississippi.” New York magazine said, of our bread, that “no other sourdough has the same rich layering of flavors under a crackly crust.”

We all pride ourselves on making delicious food from scratch every day and offering people meals made with locally-grown and locally-produced ingredients. Our coffees and teas are all fair-trade and organic. We offer excellent French Toast and a killer Breakfast sandwich ... vegan deli sandwiches and salads including the best Reuben and BLT you’re likely to have ... pizzas made with Rock Hill bread dough and the amazing Mozzarella from our friends at Berben & Wolff’s Deli in Albany ... amazing breads ... chef-made soups ... great local music ... friendly people! Come visit us today in our new home at 18 Curran Lane in Glens Falls!
