Oy, computers.

All my journal templates and endpages are saved on a very expensive coatrack. Instead of crumbling over the disappointing eletronics, I made my first business ceramic order.

So... I'll be up and running again soon!

Pottery Portfolio

I have been neglecting my shop lately. I have been busy applying for grad school (to be a middle school math teacher), stage managing a show, and working hard at the pottery studio. My duties at the studio have expanded to include painting commissioned work (so exciting), so I have been working on my portfolio. These are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!
