We are gearing up for our favorite time of the year, The Feast of the Hunters’ Moon. It is October 1st and 2nd in 2016, at Fort Ouiatenon, Indiana. (Get directions)
La Compagnie des Beaux Eaux will be in the same place as always on the grounds, although we have a new booth number – #210. Here is a map of the grounds and the schedule of events. We’d love for you to stop by and say “Hello!” The weather looks as if it is going to be pretty good.
We are in the process of updating our pottery and textiles sections of the website with our 2016 merchandise, but meanwhile below are some photos of David’s period-appropriate pottery as a taste of what you can buy at the Feast this year! He has a lot of exciting new types of pottery we’ve never sold before. (Candlestick for size reference)
If you have questions or comments, leave us a comment below or send us a note on our contact page. David will be happy to tell you more about the history of each type of pottery or set aside certain pots if you know you will buy them.
So will we see you at the Feast this weekend?
We enjoyed our 20th year of offering our wares from our booth at the 2015 Feast of the Hunter’s Moon near Lafayette, Indiana on October 3 and 4. David is holding a costrel, a vessel for storing and serving liquids. This year was the first time he attempted to create one.

Look how far we’ve come almost two decades later! Both Karla and Lars are grown and our booth has grown quite a bit too! We’re expecting our biggest collection of pottery ever this year!
The weather is warming up and that means that in just a few weeks we will be starting to create merchandise for The Feast of the Hunters’ Moon 2015!
We have a number of exciting new directions we are going this year. Stay tuned!
