Ho! Ho! Ho!
Pitcher from a new series I've been working on inspired by this book.
First Saturday of our Holiday hours at fourth & clay and you will will find me in our cleaned up studio serving cookies, listening to Christmas carols and maybe covered with a bit of clay dust.
The holiday season begins. I love this time of year especially now that I'm "retired". Working my old job and trying to be together for the holiday was a bit of a stretch. December was always one of Sweet Potatoes busiest times of the year. I had a huge collection to design, salesman's samples to produce and get shipped out by January 1. Getting people to deliver on time during this busy season (or even work) was a nightmare. Just the memory make me sweat (and it's been 6 years...yikees!).
The pressure of getting new ceramics together, sprucing up the studio, helping plan a party and being open for a few weekends is a delight for me. Just enough to keep me busy and out of trouble. Do I enjoy being at fourth & clay every weekend? Yup...especially in the beginning when people come by and are NICE. So come on by and have a cookie.
