What I Made in 2018

Here’s a quick look at the main body of work I made this year. I’d been developing a glaze combination I really liked for a while, and I decided to make a lot of simple pieces in various shapes that would showcase these glazes beautifully.  I’m always attracted to things that match and don’t match […]

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 […]

Glazing Day

Time to do a little glazing!  Or a lot, as it were.  Here’s a glimpse of what things look like when I spend an afternoon up at the studio. I do my glazing and firing at this amazing place.  The facilities and available equipment and materials are pretty much everything I could possibly want at […]

A Year in Teapots

Teapots, 2011 Series, a set on Flickr. A little review of most of the teapots I made during 2011, for your viewing pleasure on Flickr!  Currently planning a new year of teapots (and other wonderful things), building on some of the things I started doing in 2011’s series.  If you like, let me know what […]

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 […]

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 […]

Good Things.

Things that are making me happy lately: I’m feeling very blessed and thankful, especially that I have been accepted for inclusion in the Schlafly Art Outside Alternative Art Fair, happening in less than three weeks!  I have so much to do, but I’m starting to get very excited to launch my art fair career.  Putting […]

A New Wave of Teapots

Can I say, without seeming self-centered, that my new teapots are beautiful? Let me share.  And please believe that this is not an I’m-awesome post–this is an I-love-my-job and I’m-so-happy-to-be-doing-what-I-love post.  Also, I work alone and don’t often get to share how excited I am when something turns out well–so thanks for letting me! Possibly […]

A Mostly Monochromatic Montage

I’m in preparation for my first art fair (the Schlafly Art Outside Alternative Art Fair) which is exciting to me because I actually had to apply and be accepted to participate.  Yay!  Major confidence-boost.  Also, it’s a juried fair (not that I expect any prizes, being a newbie), and will hopefully be profitable for my […]

New Designs

I’m short on time as I crunch for next weekend’s show, but I wanted to share my most recent kiln haul!  There were several pleasant surprises–a pitcher I tried a new glaze combination on, my first experimental serving boat, and a batter bowl.  This batch also included a lot of my new embossed porcelain soap […]
