I have been going gangbusters since November 9th, and have been in the studio every day, and will be until Friday -- when I'll have my first day off. (!) I'm usually working a 10-12 hour day - to fill an order for a holiday pop-up shop this coming weekend - and getting work together for the PNW Resident Artists Holiday Show and Sale. It's hard going, but I'm really enjoying the single minded focus of it too.
The King Street Makers Market -- pop-up shop is curated to two sharp eyed ladies with exceptional taste. (well they picked my work ;-) ) Their collection is all Northwest made, and ranges from fancy sugars & salts, to fabrics, ink drawings, jewelry, leather goods - and my ceramics.
We got a write up in the Seattle Met. I have to say -- they've been doing a fine job with their social media campaign too see here on Instagram and here on Facebook for more. Maybe its silly - but I was flattered when they told me that their studio visit with me, (when they snapped this photo) is when they had the idea to profile their makers as well as their work -- as part of the social media campaign.
The pop-up is THIS weekend, starting Friday the 5th, through Sunday the 7th of December in the International District 666 S King Street.
(did you go? is that how you got to my website? say hi! tell me what you got!!)
I've also been charging towards my deadline for the Pottery Northwest's Resident Artist Holiday Show & Sale who's deadline is a week later than the KSMM -- thank goodness! PNW's show and sale is up till December 20th but the opening THIS Saturday promises to be a good time. Revealing my new grey spectrum work for the first, new vases, and a new serving form! (photos soon to follow) Come by and say hello!
