Plate order

Just a quick peek at what came out of the kiln recently. I did a special order for a customer of mine who has one of my big bowls ( and some other stuff) and needed some dinner plates to match. The best thing about this order, which she doesn't know yet, is that on the back of each plate a wrote something about her which I have learned being a friend of hers on Facebook! You can really learn alot about a person by just reading there daily "check-in" posts. Hopefully she'll be happy with how they turned out.
I'm getting ready to head out of town this weekend for the North Carolina Potters conference. I'm looking forward to a little "alone" time and to learn some new things. All conference's and workshops always get me excited about going back to work.

*Fish...what fish?? I love when people see things I haven't even noticed!

*I just took this photo on a black cloth in my studio. I thought it turned out sort of neat!

OH JEN! I've been looking at your blog and looking at my plates over and over again! I love all the comments and I'm excited to come to Shelby and pick them up! I really think that it says so much about you as an artist that you decided to personalize them for me! I didn't want to comment on here because obviously it was supposed to be a surprise. But I just wanted to say a thank you from the bottom of my heart. I don't know exactly what you have learned of me from my updates on facebook, but I hope it has been good! I have been thinking about how wonderful it will be to pass this "collection" down to my children one day. And with something so wonderful as your personalization... how much more wonderful it will be for them. When I get there, I plan on talking about either lunch plates or bowls. Which would like to work on next? *** with much gratitude, Lori
