Miniatures at Port City Pottery

Milky, one of our newest additions to the family, is very curious. She was more than happy to sniff the teapot so that I could show scale of my most recent miniatures.

Port City Pottery in the Cotton Exchange in Wilmington, NC is hosting a show on miniatures. All 20 artists are invited to participate. These pieces are some of my contribution to the show.

I hope that you will be by in January to check out the show!

Port City Pottery Hosts a "Miniature" show

This January one of my local galleries is doing a show on miniatures. I wanted to do something other than jewelry, so I went with teacups and a goblet. I'm planning on doing some flatware and a teapot too, but I've been slowly recovering from the hustle of the holidays.

Come by the Cotton Exchange to Port City Pottery to see what 20 artists have done for their miniatures! I can't wait.

Secret Santa--Guess Who?

I have been in love with Shannon Conrad's (aka rubygirl) handcast "Lego" rings for some time! It just so happened that she was my EtsyMetal Secret Santa. I love the flush set stone in the corner. I have had such a wonderful Christmas and this Secret Santa definitely made me smile.

I didn't post earlier because I was such a dork and tried to shove this on my middle finger. (not the finger it was sized for either) I couldn't take pictures because my finger was all red and swollen. I drank lots of water and got my hands cold before I attempted to take it off again two days later. Good thing that I can laugh at how silly I can be....sigh.

I think I have the same level of impulse control as my 4 year old.

EM Secret Santa 2010

Dear Etsy Metal Secret Santa 2010,

I've been naughty and your Christmas present is shipping late. Instead of a bunch of whiny excuses, I'll post a photo here so that you might see your ring. I'm also terrible with keeping presents secret..... I'm so thrilled to give presents that I want to immediately tell what's inside.

I hope that you have a wonderful and joyful holiday.
