Over here on the blog, my Stripe Vases might seem a bit old hat, but I did want to mention that I have added a few new colours to the mix and also changed my slip-casting body to a more pure porcelain, then my previous stoneware casting slip. The difference is slight- oh, pretty pernickety in the making stage- likes to rip and tear if you don't use the most sharp utensil to cut the rim or seams, but there is a softness to the edges- where the white glaze meets the coloured glaze that makes my little ceramic heart sing. Yes, I have a ceramic heart inside me- must have one of those to be so persistent and patient with all things clay related.
So anywhoo, just wanted to pipe up and give a little shout out to a couple of new shops that will be carrying my striped vases soon:
Spruce Collective is a brand new shop that is opening in Abbotsford, BC, with all things vintage and good- this shop will be full of amazing and beautiful finds, I'm sure. I can't wait to stop by in person soon! What a pretty logo, heh?
Adesso Atelier is a beautiful shop in Santa Barbara, California that I would love to visit! I am really loving the studio store-front concept with most of these new shops! Adesso is already carrying my striped vases as well as a few tall cylinder vases that include my triangle pattern too!
I'll do a post with some of the galleries that will be carrying a wider range of my work this fall- I can't stress how wonderful it is to be working with shops and galleries all across North America. Many of the shop owners are makers or artists themselves and really understand how much effort and time I put into my work so I'm really grateful to be working with them!
