Good News and Bad News...wait, Good News again!

Well first, the good news is, with any luck, I'll be welcoming a baby girl into the world in a few months! I have finished up my studio work and will be taking maternity leave in September.

The bad news is that, shop hours and school hours are essentially opposite and in anticipation of the many years ahead with small kids in school, I have decided to leave the shop and move my studio home. I have had the shop for more than 11 years now! It's pretty sad to think of leaving my cute little spot on Highland Ave. I will continue to sell my work through my etsy store and who knows, maybe go back to doing a few shows here and there.

The other good news! I'm not so sad because I will be passing the shop on to my good friend and fellow potter, Liz Rodriguez. She will use the shop space as her studio and continue to sell my work along with hers. She'll be moving in August 1st and we'll have an opening party in September at some point. Here is a teaser- come by the shop- to say goodbye, say hello, see the new work!

2 Spring Tile Shows

The 2013 6 x 6 x 30 Invitational Handmade Tile Exhibition at the San Angelo Museum of Art, San Angelo, Texas features 150 Handmade Tiles by 30 artists, all 6x6 inches square. Since I was only sending 5 tiles, I decided to make them more three-dimensional so they would stand away from the wall. I really like the format so I've made another mold for a hexagonal shape. I'm hoping to have more ready for Somerville Open Studios.

I also sent off some tiles to artTILE 2013, at Indigenous in Cincinatti, OH, a great annual show featuring a vast array of tiles in a wide range of style and technique.
