Sneak Preview- Open Studio & Sale June 12 &13

The pots are coming, the pots are coming!Another load from the Little Kiln that Could.

Karen and I are sending post cards out this week, keep an eye out for them and get them front and center on your refridgerator. We're looking forward to a weekend of fun- lots of pretty pots, good friends, some demos and, of course, that magical kiln opening Saturday morning.
I am looking forward to this very first Open Studio & Sale! My hope is that it will be a yearly event, possible one in the fall. It is so exciting to see the studio fill with pots!
Hope to see you all!

New Shelves, New Pots

The Studio is showing signs of spring! New shelves, new pots springing up! I unloaded the kiln this afternoon, cherries, cherries and oops! some pears! So far the list goes like this...plates, plates, pretty mugs, salad bowls, chip & dips, small platters, big platters, spoon jars...some covered dishes are on the way. Nothing makes me want to head right back into the studio like a stack of finished pots.

Studio clean up report:
1.The floor is beginning to turn brick red ( And the windowsill is sporting red Kittie footprints.)
2. Two new wall mounted plate displays built by the amazing Pete will get their first coat of white paint tonight.
3. Various piles of stuff I have collected over the years are beginning to disappear...making the studio look like a studio and not a giant storage room.

Stop back again...more pots on the way.

Get yourself to the Sweetwater Center for Arts Pottery Sale TODAY!! You can get your own personal fatass coffee mug and make a potter happy all at the same time.

Happy Saturday to you all....this bird and I are heading to the studio.

(For the record Kyle, I had to fight Sara for it. It was tough, but it was worth it.)

Saturday Morning Fatass Coffee Blog

This one's for you Kyle.

Ever inspired by other potter blogs, Homefry Sketchbook posted a lovely tribute to some of his new favorite coffee mugs. Never one to leave a good idea goes....

Not many a potter has a house full of store bought mugs, bowls, plates, anything food or flower can put on or in. This morning I pulled out three of my favorites, filled them all with cream, sugar and coffee and here you have them. Tara Wilson, Kristen Pavelka, Victoria Christen. Coffee always tastes better in hand made mugs. My kitchen is a happier place as well. Come on over, you can ask it.
Yes, that is my BREAKFAST. Avacodo, cilantro, salsa and tortilla. YUMMY. I would say lime, but my two furry children kidnapped the lime from the table yesterday...who knows where ( or when) it will show up.
One cup down, two to go...look out studio, here I come!
