The rest of the Mugs of the Month, 2019

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Hey, y'all! Let's talk about the Mug of the Month! Brief recap: I used to throw or handbuild the mug of the month, showing off the process of throwing and adorning and glazing and whatnot, and... the mugs, frankly, didn't sell as well as I'd like. Then I got busy but still wanted to do it, so I switched to slipcast mugs, which are faster but more boring as far as the process goes. And those, for the most part, have been selling great! So much so that I put a bunch of work to the side to bring some...

Works-in-Progress Wednesday (05/08/19)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

This week is flying by - dinner with friends Monday night, doctor's appointment in the middle of the day in the next town over yesterday, another doctor appointment tomorrow (fortunately in the morning and in my town, so I can actually get some work done tomorrow). Oh, and did I mention sudden tickets to my favorite folk/rock group fell into my lap on Sunday, and a friend and I drove two hours at a moments notice to be able to go? It meant getting home at 2 AM Monday morning but it was so, so very worth it! Needless to...

Works-in-Progress Wednesday (05/01/19)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Mostly the first part of this week I recovered from GLAM (so much fun, but I always need so much sleep after!) and the latter half of this week I need to focus primarily on the next Chapter of The Unreachable Star that goes up Sunday. However, yesterday I made a list of all the things that need to be restocked, so I have a plan to hit the ground running next week! In ceramics, I need to pour some African Violet pots. I've been trying to pour them, because I've been out for a while, but I think something...

Works-in-Progress Wednesday (04/24/19)

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Most of my work this week is centered around getting ready for a big show this weekend - GLAM is running a new Spring show and you know I had to be a part of that, considering how fun the Winter show is! I'm a little nervous because I'm trying out a new thing - a new chip reader for cards that's associated with an app for my shop that lets me ring people up on my phone, as if I'm directly ringing them up on my shop. It will figure tax (which means I have to change out price...

New in the Shop: You've Been Poisoned mugs

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Oops! Tee hee hee. Once they read it... it's already too late. That's right... new in the shop, the very-much-asked-for You've Been Poisoned mugs! This mug is available in both right-handed and left-handed mugs (right-handed mugs have the words facing you when the handle is in your right hand; left-handed mugs have the words facing you when the handle is in your left hand). Please be sure to choose the correct one depending on your dominant hand and/or which way you'd like the words to face. These mugs were glazed with non-toxic food-safe glazes, and are dishwasher safe. And while I have...
