Thanksgiving is over and the holiday season is upon us.  

First, I want to announce my Etsy Sale going on through December 21.  FREE SHIPPING on all domestic addresses.  Use the Coupon Code: 2015HOLIDAYS when you check out.

Secondly, I want to THANK YOU for following my pottery progress!

Now for the BIG NEWS:

Did you see it?  I was in several magazines over the last few months!!!

Most exciting was my article for Pottery Making Illustrated on how to make my oval jars. I was so thrilled when Holly Goring, editor, contacted me to ask if I would write an article.  She had to work on me… but I finally got it done and she made it read and look AMAZING!

Then Melissa Reardon, Editor-in-Chief of WNC Magazine, contacted me for a small article on the ‘Last Page’.  What fabulous press!  Thank you, Melissa!!!!  This is a beautiful magazine covering my home town and surrounding areas.  Check out the lovely article and the wonderful image Silvia Ferrari-Palmer made of my pots.

And a local writer, Garrett Woodward of the Smoky Mountain News, contacted me for a story.  This has been quite a season of GREAT PRESS for me and my business!!!  (Thanks again to Silvia and her great photo!)

Lastly, this wonderful photo (boy do I owe Silvia!) was selected to be in a 2016 calendar of kitchen pots sold by the Potter’s Council.  Get yours now!
