I have been working on these mugs for months and I’m excited to finally unveil the finished product. Check out my personalized Faux Bois Mugs! They are sold in pairs with intials and a spot for your wedding date. They are an exclusive for Uncommon Goods. We are working hard to make them for the holiday season.
You can find my four dinnerware collections as well. Shop here.
I’m hosting a new event at my studio each month. The last Friday of the month will be 5 Dollar Friday. Students may use the studio for 3 hours at a rate of $5. This fee includes use of the equipment, glazes and firings. Clay can be purchased for $15/stoneware or $20/porcelain (25lb bags).
This event is exclusive in that it is not part of the regular open studio program. It is not part of the packages/make up opportunities. And you don’t have to pre pay. Just RSVP to the Facebook event page. Its limited to 10 wheel throwers and 10 hand builders/glazers. This is simply a low cost way for me to say thank you for working in the classroom! I hope you can join me.
I am extremely proud to announce you can now find all four of my dinnerware collections at Uncommon Goods! Each piece is hand thrown, carved and/or glazed. Perfect for gift registries too! I love seeing my work when others photograph it. I’m really excited about this new venture. The Cherry Blossom collection is pictured, photo from Uncommongoods.com.
Check out the Cherry Blossom, Summertide, Wintertide and Faux Bois Collections here.
I have a busy spring and summer once again thanks to Fresh Fork Market! I will be designing a few new products for them along with making more of the popular French butter crocks. I love working with companies to make their visions come to life. My favorite thing about this project is that I get to work with a local company whose mission I support. They promote local family farms and healthy eating. I highly recommend looking into their program. They have vegetarian and vegan options as well.
This year’s project includes honey pots and my favorite, the corn cob plates. These little guys will be sold it sets. I have have a few special edition items for them but you have to wait to find out more. Sorry! A little anticipation is good, right?!
In 2012 I began my first collaboration with Fresh Fork Market. It was a great experience. I learned new things about mass producing items, met new people and become stronger and quicker at throwing. I will be continuing my collaboration with them in 2013 (but you will have to wait for the exciting new things we have planned).
My second collaboration is with Terra Verde Handmade and The Burning River Candle Company. For Terra I will be designing soap dishes and other ceramic goodies. And for BRC I am using my tree trunk and cherry blossom containers as candles. They are not officially available until we work out a few more kinks but I wanted to give you a preview.
