Back Home

Mason and I travelled to Halifax last weekend, and then on to visit some folks in Fredericton. We had a lovely visit with my cousin and her family in Halifax, while attending the NSDCC Summer show. The show was moderately successful. Sales were not what I had hoped, but the upside was being picked up by two Halifax Gallery Shops. Lizzies pots are now available at Bogside Gallery in The Hydrostone market, and at Ikebana on Quinpool. Both shops are beautiful, and are very different from one another.
The Ikebana shop is carrying a line of shellac resist teacups, and some pendants as well as some thrown teabowls in an organic feeling blue brown glaze.

Bogside picked up a line of celtic inspired dishes

Takin a little Breather

Well its been go, go, go here getting ready for the Halifax show. So many pots to make, so many papers to fill out, and SO much cash flowing in an outward direction. Here's hoping I can recoup some of that cash in sales! Last night I had nightmares that the kiln didn't actually start, and that none of my pots would be done for the show. I was so traumatised that I got in the car first thing this morning and drove all the way to town to check for myself that everything was ok.
I am sure the girls at the Craft Centre think I am crazy.
They are probably right.
So today I am taking a few hours to hang with the kids, and perhaps drag them off to the seashore. It will be good.

Quick Update

Getting ready for the Halifax Show has kept me away from the Blog.  But we are still alive and kicken here in the midst of an unheard of heat wave. Pots are being made, Puppies are being snuggled, and kids, well they are still wacky, and wonderful.
Can't stick around, Mugs and Yarn bowls to be made!!!!!!
