First New Work of 2019

I made more piggy banks!

7 new piggy banks made it through the firing process for me this time. I have sold 4 of them already, but these 3 are up for grabs still 🙂

They are up for sale here if you’re interested. There are new mugs for sale too! I’m really digging this handle style.

It has been nice getting back into the swing of things after the holidays. I’m excited to see my work improving as well. I always end up keeping a few pieces for myself after a firing. Usually the ones that don’t turn out the best, but are still nice and usable. It gives me a chance to test out how they feel and quality check a bit. Also a nice little treat for myself, not going to lie 🙂

I’m currently drinking some berry cinnamon tea from this lovey mug.

I’m happy to say it’s a very nice weight and the handle is quite comfortable to hold. All my new mugs for sale are similar to this one. I might be bias, but I’d recommend them 😉

I’m planning a big trip to my local pottery store soon to replenish my supplies. After that I’m sure to be making more piggy banks, mugs, and more. If you’d like to follow what I’m up to I post pretty regularly on my instagram and facebook pages. Thanks, and much love to you all <3

Beer, Wine, and Pigs

As soon as I got home from the Cheeseburger in Caseville Festival, in late August, my garden was ready to harvest. A lot of my focus over the last few months has been harvesting and tending to our, very large, garden. I have been busy canning lots of tomatoes, as well as pumpkin, pickles, salsa and relish with the fruits and veggies from our garden. On top of that, my parents brought me bunches of pears from their tree. I was lucky enough to be able to preserve the pears in syrup, make jam, and a delicious crisp 🙂

Now that all the hustle of harvest season has past, I’ve been able to start focusing on my work again. My latest glaze firing went well and I have lots of wine cups, a few mugs (wonderful for beer), and 6 little piggy banks to show for it.

The pigs were almost all sold before they could even cool down.

The only one not sold is the little, drippy, yellow guy. It is for sale in the shop. Although, I’ve had interest shown in it and don’t expect to hold onto it for long.  Sold.

These two are my favorite pigs from this bunch. I’m really digging these new glazes.

I fired a bunch of wine cups this time around too. I have 5 pairs of cups, and 2 single cups for sale in the shop now.  

I’ve also been working on some new mugs. I wanted to play around with more of a beer mug look, and I’m pleased with this new handle style. I think these mugs would be great for a cold beer, or a warm coffee.

I’m looking forward to exploring these beer and wine vessels more, and making more piggy banks. I have plans for making garlic keepers, and whatever else sparks my creativity with the clay really. I have ideas floating around my head for some new paintings as well 🙂 As always, thanks for all the love and support. <3

Cheeseburger 2018

Today I’m exhausted, from a very great and very busy working vacation.

My brother and I hanging out at the Tiki Bar at Wooded Island Sports Grill

For the 3rd year in a row my hubby and I had a wonderful time selling my pottery, and enjoying time with family and friends at the Cheeseburger in Caseville Festival. I had a big set up outside the Wooded Island Sports Grill.

I enjoyed getting my work out in public and hearing feedback from people. I sold all of the piggy banks I made and lots of other pottery. Everything new that I didn’t sell will be up for sale as soon as I can get it photographed and on the website. When I get back at the wheel I will be turning out more piggy banks 🙂

Big thanks to The Wooded Island for having me out again, and I really appreciate everyone that picked up a piece of my work! It just means the world to me <3
