News and Pots

Could have updated yesterday, but that didn't happen.  So today I have some news and some pots.

I'm excited to announce that, at least for a trial period, my pottery will be available for purchase online through Etsy, "Your place to buy and sell all things handmade."  You can visit my store here, or search for "LLPottery," or find your way there through the panel on the side of the page.  I only have a few things listed at this point, but I hope to add a few more and see what happens.  If you have seen a piece of work on the site before that you're interested in, just leave a comment and I could certainly make an effort to get that added to my online store for you. 

Enough news, now onto the pots.  I got to spend a couple hours in the studio Wednesday night and they were mostly productive.  I've got a new commission that I'm trying to sort out on account of it being a rather new shape for me.  In that event, even the failed throws are valuable in learning what I'm doing wrong, and how to approach the piece the next time.  I'll get there.  In the meantime, here's what I accomplished:

My last throw of the night, after the unsuccessful attempts at the commissioned piece.  I had to leave on a high note.  I'm feeling alright about this vase.  I think I'll give it some mountains.

This guy is still hanging out waiting for his mountains to show up...

And these pots are happy to have mountains and lids.  I think they're just too cute.

That's it from me for this week.  Have a good weekend, and don't forget to let me know if there's anything you'd like to see in my Etsy shop!
