I keep forgetting to get pictures of the pots when I am at the studio. Alas, I have finally done it. My lovely wife let me have a “me day” this past Monday. She took Pax up north and sewed with her mom. What did I do all day long? I made pots big guy.

All these pots are unfinished. I wanted to give you a glance at what I have been up to for the last month or so. I am making pots I really enjoy using in the kitchen. This includes bowls, cups, and mugs. Perhaps some vases will come later, along with some larger works.

These pots are being made in preparation for a Christmas sale! I am planning on having one in early december, perhaps the first or second weekend. I will keep you updated!

One thought on “Pots for Christmas Sale

  1. I really like the look of the hakeme pot in the first picture! Also, I use the butter bell you made me ALL the time. There are many envious friends in Sweden. And, Pax looks adorable. Even if he is upset.
