This is my sixth, year-end roundup of in-progress and in-action images from my studio and of my pots, plus several from workshop adventures and other outtings. It’s fun for me to look back on the collection of images I’ve shared (lots of flowers!), and reflect on what’s continued from past years and what was new in 2016 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!
Last year, I posted six weeks of pottery investigation celebrating thoughts of Valentine color and springtime imagery into my online shop, an event I coined as Valenspringtine. It was so fun and successful, I decided to give it a go again this year, perhaps making it an annual post of my winter play. As with last year, this winter’s pursuits included new forays into surface deco, as well as form with Compotes (pedestaled serving bowls for fruits, nuts, and sweets), Cake & Cupcake Stands, new Deluxe Clover cups, and a couple other goodies totaling almost 30 pots.
