Holiday Pottery Gifts

MugsThe great thing about working in clay is that it is so versatile, you can transition from figurative sculptures to cups and bowls that make great holiday gifts!  While we are still experiencing our November Lull, I have been fortunate enough to grab some odd jobs to keep the bills paid, and to score some little sales here and there.  I just sent out a few mugs from my etsy shop and have posted some new pieces on there as well!

In the meantime, November has been my time to hover over my wheel and produce a kiln full of sweet mugs, cups, bowls, jars, and vases for the holiday gifting season.  The lower price point is a great way to make some sales and get people in the door.  So here I am building inventory for our December 5th Open Studio event complete with decorations, refreshments, and plenty of shopping!

I am lucky to have my studio in the cozy little village of Arroyo Seco, NM just outside of Taos.  The charming shops and businesses probably only cover a stretch of 100 yds or so, maybe even less?  and we feature two pottery galleries and of course now my little studio space here in this old elementary school classroom.

Both the Scott potters have great little businesses and produce tons of beautiful handmade pieces for all the guests that come through.  I simply can’t produce that much, but I’m lucky to have these guys as mentors and friends.  Rottenstone Pottery even features some of my pots and sculptures!

So if you’re in the neighborhood this December 5, come by from 5:30-8:30 and join in our little holiday celebration and sale!  If you can’t make it then, just get in touch and we’ll find a time to come by!
