I did get a chance to fire the gas kiln two weeks ago. I had three large trays in this firing. All three of them cracked or slumped. Here it is, December, and I will not have large trays for sale until January. Missed the entire Holiday Season. The life of a potter, never a dull moment. I did have several very nice small tray sets out of this last firing. They sold the first weekend. Only one is left.
I made small candle holders and small dishes. The small dishes would be perfect for soy sauce, olive oil, or jewelry next to a sink. The candleholders are the right size for our small Green Daffodil candles. Also, Michael Kifer’s small square plates would be perfect as a soap dish.

Michelle Courier, our Bay City painter, was featured in January’s Art Collector Magazine. I am thrilled for her national exposure. She is very talented and I love having her paintings in the gallery.

I organized an ornament making workshop. You could use these at Christmas or on packages throughout the year. I have had customers making them today, Saturday. Plus, this coming Wednesday, I will have the supplies ready for any creative people. It is fun, easy, and you will be surprised at how creative you can be.
