Valenspringtine 2020

   

Treat your sweet self or special sweetie! For the past five winters, I’ve given myself a month to delve into Valentine & springtime colors to escape the winter greys culminating in a Valenspringtine shop update. I always try to come up with a couple new forms in addition to new patterns on familiar favorites, and this year is no different.

For the first time in over 15 years, I made cup & saucer sets! They’re extra special in rarity & elaboration. I also made some fun, dessert-themed pillow forms —Petit Fours & Bonbons!— lovely for the wall or perched anywhere. They may be pint-sized, but they too are special and more elaborate than ever. And just like all great sweet things, hard to have only one! I’ll be posting almost 40 new pots, including Deluxe Cup & Saucer Sets, Deluxe Clover cups, Yunomi, & Wall/ tabletop Pillows. Pictured is just a sampling!

I posted earlier in the month that the sale would be Monday, but have moved it to Friday because of a change in my travel schedule, AND because shopping on Friday seems much more fun!

As I did with my last shop update, there will be a preview that begins in advance so you can peruse & plan. NOTE: During the Preview, the work will be labeled Sold Out till the sale goes live when everything will become available. (Refresh your device at noon.) There is lots of lovely work that is currently available too if you can’t wait!

Preview: Thurs, 1/30 @ Noon Est
Valenspringtine shop update: Fri, 1/31 @ Noon

Winter Blues

New season newness! My colors & patterns are influenced by what’s going on outside more than probably anything else. I love autumn, but since living in boonies MA, for me its splendor heralds a parade of the impending cold & short days of winter. I embraced the seasonal shift in the last six weeks with some new patterns paired with the moodier side of my color palette. (Very soon I’ll be ALL about the pinks & reds to celebrate Valenspringtine though!) Taking on winter one month at a time for my latest shop update of cups, square dishes, and berry bowls for the holidays.

New Store!


I have a new online store!

I’ve been selling in Etsy’s online marketplace for over 10 years, and it served me very well. Unfortunately they’ve made a lot of changes lately that negatively impact sellers, so I’ve opened up a new personal online store which is very exciting!

If you had my old shop bookmarked, please update and replace with: KiefferCeramics.shop (indeed the actual url). As always, I will aim to keep it stocked year-round, post about small adds on social media (IG & FB), and share my bigger updates in my newsletter.

Below is just a small selection of the over 30 new pots I posted last week. Several new stamps debuted including a bumble bee, new butterflies, and several new patterns!

There may be some kinks as I figure out the new store, but it has nice customer perks for you, like the ability to create an account for quicker check out, more payment options, and a cool image rollover to view detail! I’ve also added FAQ & Shop Policies pages, which were limited and hard to find on Etsy.

NEW Kieffer Ceramics Store

I couldn’t do any of what I do
without you & your support,
so thank you for your support & patronage!

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.
