Over the weekend I received another order from The Mind Gift Shop. They must really sell the egg separators well because they keep ordering them. So even though I have quite a few on hand, I went ahead and made some more.
Today I am not having artistic feelings so decided to take the day off from making anything new. I should make some long fruit bowls tomorrow so that I have them for the CCM show in May.
Today I was out in the studio again and made a few pitchers. The video above gives you a bit of an idea of my process. Today I also listed one of these pitchers in my store.
Tomorrow I will be making vases. I always have a bit of fun with vases. Each one is unique. Perhaps there will be pictures on Facebook tomorrow.
You can see my blog archives from 2009-2015 you can check them out here.
I am really excited to get my new website finished. This year I decided that I am going to try out having a shopping cart directly off my website. For a little while I will keep a cart on Etsy as well but I am curious to see if anyone is keeping up with me on my website.
This week I am back in the studio. My studio can get really cold in the winter so this year I decided that I would just stay warm as long as I was able. Well, this week it's in the 70's here so I no longer have any excuses to not be working. The photo above shows what I did a few days ago. I had to start with throwing because I needed slip for any handbuilding projects. I recorded a video and posted it to Facebook and Instagram.
This year I decided to do very few shows. Most likely I will only do our local guild show in May and October. I started selling to gift shops and galleries a few years ago and I was fairly busy last year filling orders for them. Of course I also love to sell directly to customers via my website. It's so fun to send off pots all over the country.
I would love to hear what you think about the website and if there is anything missing or could be better done. Or compliments. :)
