These pieces that I use and enjoy are all my seconds, that meaning they are pieces that have some flaw that made me uncomfortable selling. Some of these flaws i jumped for joy over because that meant I could take home the piece.
Is that silly or what!

Its my way of testing my pottery!
So I know how well it holds up to everyday use.
So now it’s my turn
Ben (My Hubby) and I are currently building a small one-bedroom “cabin” on Sugarloaf Lake in Arkansas. Its 1/2 hour from home and only 20 minutes from my studio but when we are out there it feels like we are a million miles away from the rest of the world. It makes us slow down and enjoy life.
Ben is building me a kitchen and, like the rest of the house, we are wanting it to look rustic and worn like a cabin would. He said to me “I think we should only have your pottery in the cabin”
OKEY DOKEY. No problem there
Since it’s such a tiny place (768 sq ft to be exact) and very private, we won’t be having a lot of company so I think 4 big plates. 4 sandwich plates, a few bowls, and 4 mugs ought to do it!!
My Kitchen is painted yellow (no surprise there) and I am thinking I want to have the accent color to be red. So somehow I need to make dishes using Red while keeping it organic and rustic. Hum….. Maybe I will stick with my all time favorite color combo of Brown and Red.
Yes, That will do nicely.
We have lots of wood looking stuff in the cabin since Hubby is a woodworker. The Cabinets will most likely be stained pine that is hammered to look older. He used red cedar for window sills and we chose a vinyl flooring that looks like rough-cut wood for the floors. We have dogs so vinyl is the only way to go.
So my job will be to make my dishes!!
Stay tuned and I will keep you updated on my progress.
