Pop-Up Shop!

pop-up shopWoot! Lots of good news this week – snow is melting, early spring foretold by NO shadow, and I’m getting ready for my first pop-up shop at Nalls Produce on Friday! I’ve been in the studio a good bit over the last couple of weeks so I’ve got some new works ready to show . . .  functional things like bowls and mugs and some fun things I’ve been trying out.

Pottery makes great gifts (hint, I think there’s a holiday coming up soon . . .) for your loved ones – or yourself!

HoliDaze!

 

LOVE + LITTLE STEPS

Two shows this weekend!20151203_132758

I spent the morning at The Art League helping (a little) to get it all ready for Artfête this weekend. Washing windows, hanging lights, eating broken candy canes, and setting up my own table. I’m excited to be part of the Holiday Ceramics Sale again! It’s such a fun weekend, and always nice to see others works displayed so lovingly. There are so many talented folks in the ceramics department here and it’s wonderful to see finished pieces that I’ve seen going through the working phases in the kiln room and finding out who made them!

I didn’t fret with my table as much this year – I only went through three completely different iterations of set up . . . and moved four pieces about twelve times after that! Ah, well. Little Steps! Next year, maybe. I was happy to pick up a few works I finished just in time for the last firing. Love. I’ll be at the party Friday night and then back again for my work shift on Sunday!  Continue reading “HoliDaze!”

Lyon Eyes

This fish. I’m in love.

I’ve been working on some new pieces and whenever I’m having a bit of an off day, I come back to my little (and not so little) fish. They are so fun to make – with funky fins and tails, expressive eyes and mouths . . .

This is my new favorite guy. He’ll be with me at the Lyon Park Community Center not-just-a-CRAFT-FAIR on Saturday, November 21. I can’t wait to see their newly renovated space! So glad to be back! And a little sad that I have to skip out early. The event runs from 9 AM – 3 PM but due to a family thing, I’ll be packing up around 1 PM. Come check us out, get your first look at the new digs, and treat yourself to some delectable baked goods and gourmet (Parmesan Reggiano anyone?) foods. It’s sure to be a fun day – hope to see you there!
