Makers Gonna Make, Make, Make...
This is my first true season as a Maker, selling at holiday shows and galleries, taking orders and fulfilling my wonderful (and super supportive) family and friends wish/gift lists, and let me tell you it's crazy! Crazy in an awesome, amazing and humbling sort of way. I love being out at the holiday shows and seeing people stack my bowls and pick out the perfect piece for gifts or for themselves. I love hearing all the many uses I haven't yet thought of, but they have, for my bowls and dishes. It is gratifying and humbling to get my first repeat orders and to have people think of me first for their loved ones holiday presents. And so I am making, making and making some more. My weekends and most of my week are filled with rolling, cutting, shaping, finishing, firing, glazing and firing again. My home is overflowing with bowls, dishes and ornaments. My husband, is patiently waiting for the boxes to go in the mail and orders to be completed so stacks of ornaments will no longer invade the t.v. console and all the book shelves (that hold ceramics but no books) will be empty again, or maybe used to hold books. It is crazy and a bit overwhelming as Thanksgiving is next week and deadlines are fast approaching, but I love it. Being in my studio rolling clay, smoothing edges, picking laces, it all brings a calming joy. I truly love what I do, I love making.

I love to work with clay, pushing its limits, creating new designs and patterns. I am inspired by it. Check Back here for updates and going-ons.
