Pollinators, Flora & Fauna

 

Just in time for Mother’s Day*, graduation, wedding, and ‘just because’ springtime shopping and gifting, I have updated my online shop with all things spring.

I’ve spent the last few weeks thinking of spring and flowers and pollinators (a series I began in 2013/14 with a bat, which are indeed important pollinators!), and have made cups with honeybees, ladybugs, bats, Monarchs, dogwood & cherry blossoms, and more. This latest update also features new pierced vases of which I’m quite delighted, as well as planters. All feel fresh, new, happy, and very spring-y. Stop in and have a look around! And thank you as always for buying and gifting from my studio.

Valenspringtine is here!

Treat your sweet self or special sweetie! For the past four winters, I’ve given myself +/-4 weeks to delve into reds, pinks, and florals to escape the winter greys and fill them with dreams of Springtime + Valentines culminating with a shop update, which includes new forms and new patterns as well as some familiar favorites. You (as a subscriber to my latest blog posts like this) and my newsletter members are getting a head start (you can also sign up for my infrequent newsletter here to stay more directly in the loop and receive my “faves”!) on the upwards of 50 new Valenspringtine pots, including Deluxe Clover cups, Colorized mugs, covered jars, square servers, trays, wall pillows, yunomi, & more!

Valenspringtine goes LIVE TODAY, Noon EST, 1/27 for YOU.
For everyone else, Mon, 5 PM, 1/28.

Studio Cycles Pictorial 2018

This is my eighth, year-end roundup of favorite and meaningful images featuring new work, important moments, and pottery adventures. It’s always interesting for me to look back on the collection of images I’ve shared over the course of a year, and reflect on what continues to excite me and what was new in 2018 for me as a maker. These are just a selection of favorites I posted throughout the year on my Facebook and Instagram. As with past years, it’s not an order, it’s a cycle.

As always, thank you for your continued support of my work and studio.
A happy, healthy New Year to you and yours!
