Spring Open House and Sale.

Just in time for Spring and Mothers Day...stop by and see new ceramic work for 2016 and meet Susan Frisbee of Glasswork by Susan. She will be bringing some of her stained glass work to show us what she's been up to since she closed her retail store and moved into her home studio! I'll have the new 2016 version of the nesting bird bowls as well as some larger serving pieces and small gift items. Stop by to say hello if you're in the neighborhood and haven't been in before.

So many cups, so few coffee breaks.

I often hear people say, “This is a really nice cup, I just don’t know what I would do with it.”  Really?  Well, call me crazy, but what I would do is buy it, take it home and drink out of it. 

Yes, you could use it as a pencil jar.  You could put your make-up brushes in it.  But why do we need to come up with another use for a cup?  I think we are so used to buying things in multiples or sets that we just can’t fathom owning a one-of-a-kind cup and actually drinking out of it. 

Personally, I LOVE taking my afternoon break with my Birdie Boone mug (my new favorite) and some hot tea.  It is a lovely ritual and even though I am alone since I work from home, why not treat myself to a moment with something that tastes good, nourishes my body and feels good in my hand.  Plus, I just love looking at that cup and trying to figure it out (but that’s probably just the ceramic artist in me).

When you are at your office you don’t need a whole set of cups to drink your coffee.  Just one beautiful handmade cup will do.  And I guarantee it will make you feel better about your workday when you wrap your hand around it.  No one else will have the same cup.  I promise it will make you feel special.   

In case you’re in the market for a new cup, there are two cup shows opening online this week.  They are both fantastic.  Cup:  The Intimate Object VII will go live Monday, October 31st at Midnight at Charlie Cummings Gallery.   Interpreting the Cup:  Process, Influence and Intent, curated by my friend Jason Bige Burnett, is opening at Crimson Laurel Gallery November 5th and runs through December 31st.  I will tell you that both of these shows will sell fast so go immediately and look at all the fabulous cups that are being made by some really talented ceramic artists.  I have my eye on a Gwendolyn Yoppolo, or a Deborah Schwartzkoph or ……hmmm...it'll be really hard to decide.
