As fast as I can make them.....

 This piece came out of the kiln Sunday, I finished it up yesterday and before the epoxy was dry, it had a new home. A very lovely couple in Raleigh saw this doorknob in my studio during the tour and wanted a piece made with it. They didn't care when I got it made, they just said they would take it. So I sent them photos yesterday and they said yes. That was fun! They bought one of my green barns and I think this will look perfect with it. It will be in such a happy home. I love the people that buy my work!
All of the other pieces that came out are tagged for galleries, so there goes any inventory I might have. I just can't keep any of these houses in my studio. I suppose I could have worse problems, but keeping up with supply and demand is a chore.
This doorknob was a great find, I'll be sad to see it go. It's been in my studio for awhile waiting on the right thing. It's all good though!

that worked well didn't it! I love how it feels like an extension of the house-seems it was meant to go there.

Susan, is that you :) Yay for glass door knobs, why can't all of our houses have them!!
Is anyone else having trouble posting? I got an email from Susan that she can't post, hence Ms. Anonymous

Beautiful!
It's tough to set some pieces free isn't it?! Funny how we crave those sales but then as the "inventory" flies out the door sometimes a sadness or panic sets in knowing MORE has to be made! Ebb and flow, Yin and Yang, day and night (:

I know Cindy: I looked at my empty shelves after Christmas and thought "oh no" I have so much to do in January! I am slowly getting to it, but these last pieces are going away before we get to know each other!

I love it when a pot finds the right home! Yea for people who love your work, as it keeps you moving toward the next beautiful piece :)

that knob and that house are a perfect match!

Yay for repeat customers! Letting a pot you love go is so much easier when you know (and like!) the home it is going to.

One of these days I need to order one of my own. Seems it's the only way it will happen! Rock on!

This one is so nice. I'm surprised it didn't break in the kiln.( the curse of loving them too much)

Beautiful! I think one of the most appealing things about your buildings is that they are all yours, yet each is different with its own ambience and personality.

Hey. Always good to hear that one's work is in demand. Keep up the good work and I'm glad from reading to hear that maybe you have your problem solved.

I dig this piece a lot.... love when everything comes together and just makes sense.

Yay for you being busy! People recognize your passion and your ability to relay that in your work!

Amy said...

yeah, Tracey! Always a good thing for one's pottery to be in high demand... don't know about you, but despite that at times, I did not part with certain pieces. Some are just keepers, no matter what. Happy house making!
