Island Artisans Holiday Market

I am busy decorating and firing like mad for the upcoming Holiday Market, Thanksgiving weekend.
This is a great little market, fun and festive, with lots of locally made goods.
I will preview a pot a day until then. Back to work now.

I added a few new cups to my ETSY shop. The Studio Tour was very successful and now I begin a new series of work for the summer season and the July Summer Arts Fair. I love summer.

Sugar Bowls

Sugar bowls going to a local restaurant Duck Soup Inn. One of my favorite places to eat on San Juan Island. They are kind enough to use my mugs, creamers and sugar bowls in service. If you are visiting the island you  must make a reservation for dinner!

Thought I would enter a couple of teabowls in a national juried exhibition at Greenwich House Pottery in New York. My fingers are crossed. I haven't entered a show in quite a while but it is one of my goals this year.

Peter Pugger For Sale

I am selling my Peter Pugger Pugmill. Time to upgrade to the all stainless machine. I love my pugmill and can't imagine working with out it. Peter Pugger makes a great machine. Let me know if anyone is interested. 
Does anyone have any experience using an all stainless steel pugmill with porcelain?

Having fun with Photoshop to create some graphics for my website. I am giving iWeb a try. Anybody have any experience with iWeb?  It seems pretty intuitive and enough for me to produce a simple website.

Recent Pots

Some recent pots that were thrown, altered, slab built, carved, sgraffito through slip and wax resist.
Time to list some more on etsy.

Dinner Set

These plates are slab built using slump molds. They have a nice organic and uneven curve that gets highlighted even more after the firing.

My focus now is on completing orders that have spilled over from last year. All is quiet in the studio and after the rush of the holidays I can catch up on projects. This is a great time to enjoy the work without the stress of show deadlines. So my challenge is to keep the work flowing without the pressure of a deadline to get it done.

New Favorite Tool

I love my new tool-the monkey peeler. He brings a sense of humor to the studio and his own personality.
He is great for shaving away small amounts of clay. We shall see what other talents he has.
Getting back to work, forcing myself to sit at the wheel and focus. It feels good to see the table full of freshly thrown pots. Handles will get added tomorrow.
