3 medium sized jars fresh out of the kiln, each about 12 inches tall. I’ve been working with variations on this form for several years now and these 3 pieces are a good representation of some old and new ideas - shino with white slip to the left, shino with iron decoration in the middle and celadon with slip inlaid patterning to the right.
I got a few orders out today (eee!) and am packing a bunch of orders tomorrow! The September Mug of the Month is dropping this week at an unspecified time—this month I’ve got a Oatmeal Striped Mugs! Yum! Want to know more about Mugs of the Month? View the story in my bio! Anywayyyyy, on a completely unrelated note, check out this new BABE. HOLY MOLY. I pulled it out of the kiln yesterday and am too elated not to share it with y’all. I need name suggestions! Lots and lots of name suggestions! Hope you all enjoyed your Monday 💗✨
Finished plates ! Porcelain with copper rims.. I’m pretty happy with this, I’ve been working toward a more organic look, which is strangely more difficult than I thought for it would be, I want to achieve this without the work looking wonky and badly made 😀
YOU ARE enough! Yes you, just as you are deep down in there, beautiful you, all of you is enough for your life and this world. 🍃
We've noticed these days many beautiful, inspiring words are put out there to help us and inspire us. But, sometimes those same words can be harmful to us and keep us from gently continuing to grow to reach our full potential as humans.
We are enough. I am enough as I am created but it doesn't mean ALL my ugly is enough or great or all bad habits are excusable and I don't need any improvement. I feel sometimes culture wants us to just justify any behavior or bad habit as good, ok or normal because it makes everyone else feel great and it sells, too. Now hear me out, not judging it harshly just saying we can take it too far. My gifts, talents and passions are enough. God created me to be just right, but if I don't actually take a honest look at myself and what that all is and how to use it, I can't fully let that all shine and fill my life. Growth is healthy, knowing yourself honestly is, too. 🍃
On a second note, we usually also have enough or could if we take a close look, prioritize or really think about what truly matters to us and why and then set goals. 🍃
This mug will turn a beautiful red and cream and will both remind you of how much you are enough (for me that means in Christ) as well as that you have enough! I find that encouraging, don't you? 🍃
Do you ever think themes like all grace, love imperfection, great mess and such can be negative as well as being an encouragement? Or maybe I am alone it that? 🤷🏼♀️
As people are already starting to get their Christmas custom orders placed, it has us thinking about this time last year when a lovely lady asked for 22 custom mugs to give to her family as Christmas presents. When we got this order, it sounded so big and it took us FOREVER to make, but we were so happy with the results (pictured). It’s just funny to think how much changes in a year - now we can throw anywhere from 30-50 mugs in a work day and have expanded our custom order portfolio by a ton. Still feeling so blessed and overwhelmed to get to do this all the time 🌿💗
Busy building up stock for orders, and for my next show which is Flock @thebarnarts (17-18 November). It seems a long time away, but we have the October holidays in between, and the days seem to be flying past.
These guys are small handless teacups, which I’ve been throwing today. They have been very popular recently; for tea, juice or even a small plant pot.
Mixed stack anyone?! This one is waiting for another plate to come out of the kiln before winging its way to its new home. Curated stacks of five or six... DM for details and to order. Happy Monday. Bron xo ▫️🦄▫️

A porcelain flower vase fresh out of the firing. Experimented with bubble glazing on the green portion. Definitely a novice on the technique but I can only improve from here! What are your favorite glazing techniques?
