I completed a couple new, large baskets recently (above), and wanted to share as these reticulated forms continue to be exciting pieces for me to make. Most of these are already off to their new homes.
The sweet, smaller green one below is available now in my online shop, as are many other lovely pots, but only thru January 15th at which time I will begin subtracting for workshops and shows. So now’s your chance to grab your fave right here!
I wanted to share that I will be emptying my Online Etsy Shop April 10th, and won’t be restocking until the end of May. Additionally, I won’t be having my Annual Spring Studio Sale here in MA this year.
It’s not remotely spring here in north central boonies Massachusetts, but my internal spring clock is TICKING! If I can’t have flowers outside, I can sure make them happen in my studio.
Along with the flourishing florals are ongoing and new investigations in form and layers. I continue to be excited about pierced forms, and have some new larger ones pictured here (which are loosely inspired by kimono fabrics). I’ve added two new glossy glaze colors (Violet and Aqua), and am continuing to play with Mishima. Lastly, I have introduced some new stamp patterns, and have a new bowl style.
Some of these pots are destined for shows, but others are popping up in my online Etsy shop like springtime daffodils.
It’s enjoyable to put together this annual, year end pictorial of images from my studio of in-progress and new work, as well as artist goings-on, and reflect back on both 2013’s newness and continuations. These are just a selection of images I posted throughout the year on my Facebook page and now Instagram too. As with last year’s, 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!
These and many more great goodies are in my online shop ready to ship, for gifters who want to share thoughtful, handmade craftsmanship, and giftees who want to receive ‘ornately elegant for everyday.’
Pots usually ship next day. Order before December 18th to insure Christmas arrival.
My shop will stay well-stocked through mid-January for those who receive Etsy Gift Cards or holiday spending money for post-Christmas shopping too.
Thank you for buying and giving from my studio this season and throughout the year!
