Yesterday we returned home from our working vacation at the Cheeseburger in Caseville festival. My husband and I took our two little dogs up to the thumb of Michigan with us this time. We stayed in a little camper set back in a wooded area right in Caseville for the festival.
The dogs loved staying in the woods for a few days, as did my hubby and I. We were even able to make ourselves some veggie cheeseburgers, Boca burgers over the fire with Daiya cheese melted on top 😉 It’s nice to get away, even when it’s not all play 🙂
Right before we left I was able to run a glaze firing. I’d say it went better than previous firings. I am getting know my kiln better and the firings are improving. I was able to snap a picture of my favorite little cup before it was packed up and sold.
For the second year in a row I was lucky enough to be able to set up and sell my work at the Wooded Island Sports Grill. We came to town with five boxes of my pottery and went home with only two. I’m so thankful to everyone that picked up some pottery from me. It was nice to get some practice selling and hear what people thought about my work as well.
Selling some work means I have room on my shelves to make more and some money for supplies. I’m pretty pumped to move forward and I’m working out some new ideas. I’ll continue sharing as ideas become reality. Instagram is where I stay most up to date on the happenings in my studio if you’re interested. Again, thank you to all who stopped by, bought some work from me and support what I do. Much Love <3
I will be selling my pottery at the Cheeseburger in Caseville Festival this Thursday-Saturday. I will have a little set up in front of the Wooded Island Sports Grill from 4:00pm-8:00pm on those days. Stop by if you’d like to check out my work in person. <3
Last weekend my husband and I dug out the fire pit, chopped a bunch of wood and ran our second pit firing this summer. I’m more than pleased with the results and all the new pots are now up for sale here.
The atmosphere in the pit was a bit more subdued this time.
I think it fired a little cooler than our previous fire this summer.
The pots that came out of this firing are over all very black and white, but I am really digging the subtle lines and gentle splashes of color amid the smokey greys.
I experimented with some carved pots too.
I could share so many pots from this firing. It’s hard to pick the highlights for this post. I’ll share just one more. This pot is the smallest one put in the flames, but it caught both my eye and my husband’s right away when we pulled it out.
It feels nice to be sharing some success and not struggles this time 🙂 I’m hoping to fit another pit firing in before the weather gets too cold, but we’ll see what happens. I’m currently in a rush to get everything finished up before we head up for the Cheeseburger in Caseville festival. I’m working on some shot glasses among other things, and I will be running a glaze firing soon.
I will for sure be up at the Wooded Island Sports Grill with a lot of pottery to sell on August 17th, 18th and 19th from 4:00pm-8:00pm. Thanks and take care <3
