This past week has been full of glazing. My husband finished up my spray booth and with a few tweaks it has worked great. So I proceeded to glaze 3 loads over the past week. With the new elements the firings have been faster.
I have started using a few colors I used to work with again and there were some great surprises. Within the five orders I had 109 egg separators which was great for testing new combinations. There are a few new items which include garlic keepers, salt cellars and a new olive oil bottle. There were a few other fun pieces the will be either going to Kress II or be listed online over the next month.
Out of these firings included 6 gallery orders. New work will be going out to:
Seven Sisters - Black Mountain, NC
Don Drumm Studios - Akron, OH
Pura Vida - Jerome, AZ
Art on Broad - Augusta, GA
Sarahs Vineyard - Cuyahoga Falls, OH
Kress II - Asheville, NC
Many things have happened since my last post in May. We decided to sell our home and move to Rock Hill (closer to my husbands job) So, in June we closed down my studio and put our home on the market. After getting our home ready to sell it only took a month to sell and another month to close on our new home.
So then the real work started as I immediately set up enough of the studio to start taking orders from galleries and so far have started filling 5 gallery orders. The electrician came and got my kiln up and running and my husband is in the process of building me a spray booth, putting up more lights and hooking up a utility sink. My hope is that he will finish the spray booth by next week and I can finish up the orders and other pieces I made for fun the last three weeks. Look for a video of my new studio once it's completely finished.
This Saturday I am supposed to have a booth at the CCM Pottery Festival. And I will be there if it's not raining. It's the only show I am doing this fall. On Sunday I will start putting new items up on my website for sale and will keep adding new items through the holidays.
