Spring and summer are my favorite times of the year: the warmth, the flowers, the birds and bees…the flowers. *happy sigh* It’s becoming a tradition for me to spend a few weeks in spring working on new designs and patterns with thoughts of summer and its delights. On the First Day of Summer, I’ll post a small selection of twenty-four summery pots adding to other new work already available in my online shop (including plaid cups!). The offerings include two sizes of brand new, handled vases in a variety of colors and patterns, as well as summer cups with pollinators (butterflies and a bat), birds, and blossoms…and cupcakes because I’m a July birthday!

First Day of Summer celebration: Mon, June 20th at Noon EDT thru
Fri, June 24th* 
in my online Etsy shop!

Important note: I try to keep my shop open and stocked year-round for your shopping and gifting needs, and usually ship in 1-3 days. Because I’ll be away teaching a two-week workshop, my shop will actually remain open, but pots purchased after June 24th won’t ship till July 11th.

This is my fifth, year-end roundup of in-progress and in-action images from my studio and of my pots, plus a workshop image for good measure. It’s fun for me to look back on the collection of images I’ve shared, and reflect on what’s continued from past years and what was new in 2015 for me as a maker (lots!). 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!

Special & Daily!

New and super, special cups will be added each day this week at NOON EST with more of my usual lovelies (cups, tumblers, and a couple yunomi) sprinkled into my online shop daily. Because I’m so excited about the new pieces I unloaded from my glaze kiln yesterday, I’m announcing in advance which cups will be available in my shop and when:

Mon, 11/24 – 2 cherry cups (pictured top left)
Tues, 11/25 – 2 honey bee cups, & 1 honey bee yunomi (pictured bottom left)
Wed, 11/26 – 2 cherry yunomi (pictured top right)
Thanksgiving, 11/27 – 2 pink cupcake yunomi (pictured bottom right)
Fri, 11/28 – 2 skull cups
Sat, 11/29 – 2 teapot cups

Again, more elegant cups in my usual variety of colors and patterns will also be added daily over the next couple weeks leading up to holiday buying and gifting. Connect with me on Facebook and Instagram for reminders, and ‘favorite’ my shop to see new pots at the top of your Etsy home feed. Thank you as always for supporting and gifting handmade & elegant from my studio!

Happy Thanksgiving!
