A Bit Dusty

This past Saturday, my husband distracted the baby and I got out some clay and worked.  I’ve had a lot of time to think of new ideas, and managed to sketch a few during some of my quiet sleeping-baby-holding hours. There are some things I’ve forgotten, some habits I need to re-establish.  When I neatened […]

(Un)Apology

Well, I haven’t been here in a while.  Hello again. A few big things have happened. (Or maybe only one; I’ve lost track.)  About the time I last wrote here, we were beginning the tenderest journey.We welcomed our son in early March of this year, and it’s been a blur.  Things are pretty crazy and […]

New Adornments

Well, I’ve been working hard on some new designs, and here they are!  I’ve been making a lot of beads, after finding some very delicate-textured lace in an antique shop (it is seriously old and falling apart, so these may be limited edition designs!).  I’ve planned on branching out into making necklaces for a while, […]

New Show, New Things, New Loves

First of all, let’s celebrate the beautiful weather that has been gracing the Midwest!  Welcome, fall. Next, Windfall Arts has another gig this weekend–the Midtown Alley Street Fest!  I’ll be part of the Open Air Market, selling from 10-5 on Saturday, October 1.  Come if you can! (And a quick insert for those of you […]

Coming Soon . . .

Well, I officially have two days to tie up all the loose ends, finish planning my booth display, and price and pack up my pottery for the Schlafly Art Outside Alternative Art Fair!  Then it’s a crazy weekend of camping out in the rain (weather.com currently says scattered thunderstorms all three days of the festival […]

Life!

I wake up this morning with my mind alive and worried about everything–tasks that I forgot to write down last night, loose-end issues I can’t deal with until the work week, the important small-business nuts and bolts I’ve been trying to take care of, the ever-present question of how I turn my pottery into a […]

One Week!

Yay! Yay! Yay! I invite you, if you’re in or near St. Louis, to come check out this festival.  This will be my first year there–I hear it’s great, and I’ve seen the works of a few of the participating artists, and they are gorgeous (see this gallery of work examples).  My booth will have […]

A Little Preview . . .

I just can’t contain my excitement!  Yesterday’s kiln unloading yielded a lot of new and wonderful things, which ideally I would have beautifully photographed today to share with you in high style.  Alas, I’m at the end of the time I have to make pots for my show in two weeks (drying and two firings […]
