a corner . . .

I would have rummaged, ransacked at the word;
Those old odd corners of an empty heart:
For remnants of dim love the long disused,
And dusty crumbling of romance!

studio photos

yesterday i referenced the post my friend pia
did on her visit to my home

a photo she showed on her post has garnered much interest.
the one with my clay cutters and the 'button bowls' underneath
well, these are made by my very dear friend, selene
( who also happens to be one of my wonderful studio girls )

above is some more of her latest work newly made . . .
as she tries different techniques and styles.
stay tuned as these may be out in the world one day to purchase . . .
i am lucky enough to have one in my home already. . .

a gift from selene for firing the tiles she decorated
for her beautiful bathroom reno . . .
i thought i'd show you a picture of that too . . .
she's one talented lady . . . and her next project is a kitchen reno
( and being privy to what she is planning i can't wait to show
you this when it is finished, i love the handmade coming into
homes in this way )

ain't it the truth

above is one of ten new additions to my
ceramic quote tag range . . .
and a particular favourite quote of mine . . .

and while i'm here i just want to say
a word of thanks to my dear friend pia

who visited me last month, and has done a post on her
inspiring blog about her visit to my corner of the world . . .
it is so interesting to see your space through another's eye,
and especially one as clever as pia's

my cup still runeth over with her beautiful friendship . . .
she sprinkles my days with support and inspiration
from the other side of the world . . .

starting early . . .

i seem to be always saying here how busy i am
( this is actually the truth of the matter )
but i am trying to make sure more systems
are in place to keep work/life balance a bit better
like making some of these christmas ornaments
starting now . . .
crazy but true, just the odd batch and run of
different items between orders . . .

i am planning to have a little 'book launch' sale
in store the first week of march to celebrate the launch of
my new book . . .

i will keep you posted

new words . . . new pots . . .

as the release date approaches for a once courageous heart
i am making some new work with the poems that fill its pages . . .
above are some from today's studio time,

the big bowl features the title poem of the book :

a once courageous heart
a fragment of universe
a lover's sway

a curtain drawn

a this too love
a this love too

a part of a long past you
a where-else but here

a good day followed
a dance slow and always

a suddenly you
