`A Potter's Easter'

If Easter can't come soon enough for you, then take a trip to the Landis Valley Museum's Weathervane Store in Lancaster, Pa., today for a glimpse of intricate Easter redware created by potter Lester Breininger. On display at A Pennsylvania Potter's Easter will be Sgraffito eggs, plates and rabbits, all inspired by 18th- and 19th-century pottery pieces. Breininger, a Pennsylvania German potter and historian, uses the Pennsylvania German colors of brown, yellow, black, red and green for much of his work and finds inspiration for his designs from German folk art drawings, tombstone engravings and Fraktur. Works will be on display and for sale, with proceeds benefiting the museum's programs.

The Weathervane is open from noon to 5 p.m. today. It is at the Landis Valley Museum, 2451 Kissel Hill Road, Lancaster, Pa. Free admission. Information: 717-569-9312; landisvalleymuseum.org.
