Quick Update

 

Just a few things happening around the studio lately. Making spoons and salt cellars, divided serving bowls. I also took a visit to visit Julie Wiggins at her summer sale in Springfield! Also an Orton update… he is still hanging around, but I think the studio is getting a bit too warm for him. Wimp. spoonbutterfly

Studio Progress

Just a quick pop in to update you on what I’ve been up to!  First off, I’ve FINALLY gotten myself semi organized and on etsy! Check it out in the link below or click on the box to the right!

In the last few weeks I have bought a kiln, ordered clay, photographed work… pretty much everything pottery related except make a pot! That changes this week…

I spent today moving some things around the garage to get it into working condition for the summer/fall. Later this year the plan is to insulate the garage, but for right now I will just work early in the day and deal with the heat. What I wasn’t expecting was a visitor so soon… a snake! He is really pretty small, just very very long, but he took me by surprise hanging out right where I was about to put my table. I named him Orton… we were co-existing perfectly fine until I went into the house to make some lunch. When I came back out he was missing. Now if he moved on I do not mind, BUT I’d rather know where the snake is then have a daily surprise.  I’ll leave you with some pictures…. one of Orton, and the rest are of my progress today. I also need to invest in some spider repellent… does that exist??

Catch up!

Just a quick catch up before I post about my Minnesota adventures. The past few weeks have been crazy here, filled with all things pottery except for actually making pottery. Flash back to the beginning of April and Elliott and I went on a trip to Boston, where he was on a panel at a computer conference.

Then during the first weekend of May I had a craft show in Raleigh NC with the Handmade Market group. It was great and downtown Raleigh was really neat. I’d love to go back sometime when I have a little more time to look around. This was my first show with a new banner for the table. I think it worked out pretty well.

Then the process of moving out of LibertyTown came…. I will do another post later this week on my time as Artist in Resident and my next steps, but for now here are some before and after pictures.

Tired….

Jeesh! Rereading the post I put on Facebook makes me even more tired I think….
