My Pot Runeth Over

The sun is pouring into the studio, warming a batch of mugs so they might dry one day. It has been raining cats and dogs here for a last few days so the 'glowing orb' is nice to see. I wanted to post a photo here quickly (as i am going to get cleaned up for a surprise wedding of some friends) that i received from some new canadians who live on the other side of the country. It warmed my soul to see my creation taking a place in someone's life and being full of love as only a gift can be.

Pots hold a lot more than stuff. My pot runeth over.

Thank you all for a great year! hh

Open Studio

Hi Folks!

I will be putting out the "open studio" signs as much as possible for the next few weeks leading up to santa-day. If i am home, the signs will be out and people are invited to browse the gallery for a nice gift. There are 5 mugs at both Coffee on the Moon and Black Coffee at Whippletree for you to have a look at.

Happy local, green, culturally valuable, shopping!

want to cruise the market in stylish wool?

The City Square is packed tomorrow, a feat never heard of before the market merger and such a welcome addition to our tiny city. Now all we need is some happy seasonal shoppers to join us and everything is perfect. I have some really nice work in the studio and am happy to bring it to the Market as the hours have changed to a 10 am start so there is some time to burn off the frosty icy streets before everyone gets there. I will be riding home after i pack up at 2pm and then anyone who is looking for beautiful, unique affordable clay work can come to my studio and browse without freezing to the ground!! heehee

I would also like to thank "calfornia dave" for the lovely order of a bowl (many of you picked it up and wanted it) it was shipped to your sister today and we sprinkled a little magic over it (besides double packing it, an old potters' trick) and we hope it adds to her new home her in the 'great white north'. Thank you for keeping my pottery in mind from so far away.

Touch of Saltspring Christmas Show

Hi all, just a quick note to let you know that i am at the "touch of saltspring" this year in north saanich, in the panorama recreation centre, parking is very limited and there is a shuttle bus, i am carpooling with my two dear friends franziska and sandy who are selling clay jewelry and goat milk soap, this means that we are all leaving town at 8am and returning LATE at night

a photo inside the 'water' glzee tub and my feet, i love this shot
