Press-o-rama.

I'm back in action. I've been back in the studio since Monday. I stuck to my guns and stayed away from making clay work for almost 2 whole weeks. I think that's the longest time away in 2 years!! I did, however, do lots of drawing so I have loads of new designs to play with. I also did a bunch of other finger cramping crafty things that I'll share in another post.

I received a couple of way cool presents in the mail this week. The first one was from Tildé, a fabulous shop in Portland, OR that carries my work.This came out a while ago and I kept meaning to mention it. I finally got the book in my hands to scan it. They misspelled my name...but that always happens.

The second present came by resisted mail from Portugal. I had forgotten about it until it arrived in a nice little box.A nice, big (almost too big to fit on my scanner) full page feature in the December 2008/January 2009 issue of House Traders. A very cool architecture and design magazine from Portugal. It's written in Potugese and then in English beneath...love that. And who was on the opposite page?Why, good old Jonathan Adler of course. Looks like I'm playing with the big kids now...lol. I hadn't really looked at his work in a while...wow, he's really cornered the entire world of 50s-60s ceramic design. Beautiful stuff, but it kind of takes the fun out of it. Hmm.
Anyway, a great finish to 2008. First, sharing a full page with Eva Zeisel, now this.

Glad you got some time off too, Jeff!

Thanks Jen. It's certainly a sense of accomplishent.

Thank you Manon. I'm getting the warm fuzzies from all this positive feedback. It certainly makes the extra time in the studio all worth while!
