I should have posted this already, but I've been super busy lately. I'm one of 18 potter's in The Clay Studio's...

Pitchers: An Exploration

August 7 - August 30, 2009

So, if you find yourself in Philadelphia, go check it out!

I really do love making pitchers. I have about 5 new pitchers sketched out and ready to be made. Now that I have about 200 pounds of fresh new clay sitting and waiting for me in the studio, tomorrow might be the day...

Back to reality.

My mini camping vacation was fun. Super relaxing. No phones, no internet...perfection. I left the shop open and came back to a bunch of orders and emails, but everything was fine. I 've stayed out of the studio for the last couple of days and just packed and shipped and packed and shipped....then took photos and took more photos and posted work and posted more after that....then took stock of what I actually need to create in the next couple of weeks. I've been invited to do the Kohler One and Only show again this year, so I'll have to crank out some work for that as well. It's hard to be thinking of the holidays, but I know I'm not the only one. I've seen that "holiday" word popping up on a lot of artist's blogs lately. Yuck.Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on the outlook) I don't have much work in the studio right now. A bunch of mugs and some free form tripods. Nothing too unusual though. I do still have some of these cute bird silhouette vases. I made a bunch before the Pittsfield Art Show. The owl keeps popping up on the front page of Etsy.I guess it's off to do some more cleaning. I need to make some more clay and I've totally been procrastinating. The husband has a gig tonight and that's means I'll have some alone time in the to work. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE having a husband that's a teacher and who gets his summers off, but I can't seem to get a damn thing done around here...
