Life of a Potter, taking chances, and getting ready for the Holidays…

It’s almost December 25th!We have new artwork that arrives throughout the month.  Each week, I think, I will find time to throw on the potter’s wheel, but not to be.  I haven’t thrown since mid November.

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.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas,
Cyndi
