Studio views with my very own @maddiegerigshelly dog mug. She’s the sweetest little water container.

Tea for two... now up on my etsy shop at MaddieGerigShelly. #etsyshop #maddiegerigshelly #miniaturepottery #teafortwo #miniatureteaset #workingsmall
Movin little pots around the studio on this incredibly grey day. Ready to have a lot of fun with Luke and Lauryn this weekend! 🙌 . .

I’m so grateful to be a part of people lives, and part of people’s grieving in my art making. This is a portrait of the beautiful late Maggie, a chocolate lab with constantly itchy ears and a heart of gold. Thank you @hungrymarshall for letting me babysit this dog often and now get to draw her! Rest In Peace Maggie ❤️ ———————————————————— #customdogportrait #dogportrait #miniaturedog #miniaturedrawing #scaledminiaturedrawing #tinydrawing #tinydogoftheday #tinydog #customdrawing #miniaturecustommade #maddiegerigshelly #mgsfineart #etsyseller #ilovedogstoomuch #petportraits #doglover

So pleased with the glaze on this little guy - not sure I can replicate it. That’s part of the beauty of the medium... even if you take the most fastidious notes nothing will be exactly alike again. . .

Deep breath after my weekend in beautiful Atlanta. Taking stock of my inventory and schedule for the next few months, time to start getting ready for woodfirings and shows - the miniature show Chicago (the big one!) is coming up. But first a day of granola, bread making and napping 😊 Still really pleased with this crystalline piece. It’s still available after my show this weekend! . .

I’ve had an itch to do some paintings in miniature and finally got around to playing around with a couple of the compositions stuck in my head. Maybe I’ll even get around to making some tiny frames this afternoon 👏 (Please ignore the grossness of my fingers in this pic... I have a bad habit of picking them... 😬). . . .

Excited to spend a good full day in the studio tomorrow and play a little catch up after full days @albrightknox the last few weeks setting up for the We Wanted A Revolution show.... such an incredible collection of radical black feminist work. It was an honor to handle artwork I’d read about in my history books! I’m inspired. . .

So pleased with how the glaze variation turned out on this little piece - a little crystal growth, a little gloss, a little matte and colors ranging from green to orange... . Also pleased to share I’ll be joining the @michianapotterytour this coming September in #goshenindiana Excited to go back home and do the tour with the mentors that first inspired me to start working in clay and taught me so much since @markgoertzenpottery @jrothshank @dicklehman Thank you! .

Tiny tiny crystal growth makes this glaze look matte. Love the pooling mint green. This little bowl was thrown on my big wheel. I left a little foot on the bottom to elevate it off the table - gives it more of a refined little look. . .

This is the smallest vase I’ve thrown on my mini wheel to date. I painted it with a little simple, mid century modern inspired, black circular forms. The top is so tiny - I’m surprised it’s actually open 🤗 I’m heading to the studio soon this morning to unload my latest firing - a slow cool firing.  I’m excited to see if my crystallin glazes turned out - it was my first time programming my little L and L doll kiln! Next week I start a temporary art handling job at the Albright Knox... I’m so excited to get to work such an incredible museum! Wish me luck... . .

A little vase, full and round. Everything melted in buffalo yesterday, and I even got a glimpse of the sunshine. In the studio like a cat, i huddled next to the window to soak it in. This morning the snow is back! It’s almost time to take my hike to the studio, but first, must finish coffee. . .

I’m really pleased with these forms - They’re currently in my little baby kiln, soon to be glazed with some new slow cool #coyoteglazes. It’s scenes like this: quiet mornings in the studio  and my own creative sense of order and calm that keeps me sane in this crazy political time. I listen to #npr all day every day whether the news is good or bad! ... it’s usually all bad... I was so happy to hear and see pictures from the women’s marches all across the country - I was marching in solidarity, from my desk at work 😊 All my love and gratitude to those who marched ✊

Another day throwing away on my little wheel! I built this little wheel last summer having no idea that it would become such a staple in my studio practice. I got significant help from friends in the electronics lab @goshencollege

In this video you can get a better idea of the tools I use to make my mini pots. I have four different sizes of ball tools, a needle tool and a hooked carving tool. Usually I also use a little kitchen knife to cut the piece off the wheel (which sometimes fails, but it’s a technique that Jane taught me that really stuck). Lately I’ve been leaving some extra clay at the bottom of the piece to mimic a foot.  #howtomakeminiaturepottery #miniaturepottery #miniatures #dollhousetherapy #dollhouseart #miniaturefineart #artisanminiatures #maddiegerigshelly #mgsfineart #miniatureartist @insta_pottery @potsinaction

Thanks to some incredible generosity and sharing with my studio mates, I spent the day taking new photos of my work! A good camera makes a significant difference. My Etsy shop looks a lot better and now I have some new listings up! Link in bio. I also have more tiny dog drawings in the works, some new glaze trials and videos... coming soon!

Everything has thawed in Buffalo today. I didn’t freeze on my walk to the studio! It’s 🔥 up here on the fourth floor. Slowly but surely rebuilding my stock after the Christmas season. It feels good to be back at it again. I’m working towards the miniature #bishopshow in #Atlanta in March. Looking forward to going with my aunt Jane ❤️ #wanttobejustlikeher #miniaturepottery #miniatures #dollhousetherapy #dollhousepottery #maddiegerigshelly #mgsfineart #backtowork #miniaturewheel

Working on #tinyteapots this week. Over the holiday season my stock was completely wiped out! Only one left.  I’m so thankful for this - it means people like them as much as I enjoy making them! 🤗 they are probably the most intensive piece that I make, the most challenging and most rewarding. I tend to be drawn to an eastern aesthetic when it comes to teapots.

Finally found a little bit of focus today. Maybe it’s just the January mood? I was trying to do research on juried shows, write and think on making in miniature, art and entrepreneurship all morning... eventually got too sucked in to my computer that I couldn’t keep anything straight. My fix: a long cold walk to the studio, rhythmic throwing on my little wheel, a dose of cleaning my space and the friendly faces of my studio-mates. I would call it a very successful day after all ——————————————— #miniaturepottery #miniatures #maddiegerigshelly #artistlife #selfemployedlife #selfemploymentproblems #artistinspiration #dollhousetherapy #dollhouseminiatures #dollhousepottery #fineartminiatures #artisanminiatures #etsyseller #mgsfineart #throwingpottery #makingminiatures

It’s a little tricky to pose with art this small...

I used some cut up scotch tape to create a resist to decorate this piece.

It’s not too late to order your mini pet portrait! DM me or find MGSfinart on Etsy to order yours for Christmas. This is Junebug, she can open doors with her paws, walk on her hind legs and can weasel her way into  a snuggle any time. Love this dog. #doglove #custompetportraits #customportrait #miniaturedrawing #miniaturepetportrait #minidog #miniature #miniatureart #maddiegerigshelly #mgsfineart #customchristmaspresent
Do you know someone who loves their dog too much? I’ve been having a TON of fun lately doing these miniature dog portraits. If there is someone in your life who needs a mini dog portrait this Christmas, I would be happy to oblige! $45 framed. This here is Tuki, the love of my life (sorry @ben.shelly). She only has one eye and would kill herself to get a frisbee. So wise. So regal.  #dogportrait #customdogportrait #miniaturedogs #maddiegerigshelly #miniaturedrawing #ilovemydog

These low fire glazes worked well when layered and fired multiple times. This one has a little blue speckling near the neck. 1:12 inch scale miniature vase #miniaturepottery #dollhouseminiatures #dollhousepottery #maddiegerigshelly #tinypots
