Studio and Shop are Up!

I think everything in life seems to take longer than I expect it to. Perhaps I should be used the the fact that I move at a turtle’s pace by now πŸ˜› I think I will embrace the motto “slow and steady”. Β In any case I have good news to share!

I have had my garage studio up and running for a little while now and things are getting into a rhythm.

I do not have the kiln moved in and set up yet, but I have been producing pottery. I am currently working on stockpiling decorative pots to be pit fired when the weather gets warm.

I have also started working on some large mugs, and pulling handles for the first time since college.

I have plans for more pots and mugs as well as working on different types of planters again. Ceramics had taken a strong hold on me and I have spent all of my creative time as of late focusing on that. I will surly be painting again in the future, but for the time being I have nothing in the works there.

The second bit of good news I have to share is that my online shop up and running now! I was able to make a light box and take nice photographs of the work I have for sale.

Getting the whole system up and running has been a bit of a task, but I believe it is working correctly. PLEASE message me, via the contact form on the sidebar, Β and let me know if you have any problems trying to purchase something. I will gladly work to resolve any problems that might occur. You can shop directly from this website by clicking here or by clicking on the Shop button on the main menu. So, go check it out! Thanks for the support <3

Good Times at Cheeseburger 2016

Last week my husband and I packed up all my pottery and paintings to set up a little stand and attempt to sell my work at the Cheeseburger in Caseville festival. Caseville, Michigan is probably most famous for this 10 day Jimmy Buffett themed festival. Since my parents own a bar and grill in the area I thought it would be a good place to start putting myself out there. The Wooded Island Sports Grill was gracious enough to let me set up right outside their front door. It was an enlightening and exciting experience. Many people were interested in what I was selling and how I made it. It was great to get some feedback and even cooler to be able to sell my work to others. I truly hope those who bought from me are enjoying their pieces πŸ™‚

I do have to add that we didn’t spend the whole week working πŸ˜‰ We had a really fun time hanging out at the grill and enjoying the festivities. Participating in Wednesday nights parade was definitely a highlight, even though it poured rain on us. It was good times and great company all week.

I ended up selling more than half of my inventory and I will be working on putting what I have left up on this website for sale as soon as I can. It’s time for me to get back into the studio and start creating some more work!
