Thank you for the support!

As 2018 draws to a close, I want to thank each and everyone of you that supported me this year. Whether you stopped by my booth to say hello, or purchased an item that I’ve made, I appreciate you. I’m taking a short break over the holidays, but I’ll be back playing with clay very soon. If you haven’t already done so, sign up on this website of mine so you will receive notice each time I am going to be showing my work. That is about once a month, so no need to worry about a lot of unnecessary e-mails.

Merry Christmas to you, and may the new year be a happy one.

Love, Linda

Two events: November 10th and 11th

Here are two ways for you to see what pottery I have recently made:

  1. Saturday, November 10th I will be selling my wares at the Second Saturday Market from 10am until 3pm. That market is in the airport shopping center, between  Friends of the Library  and Alaska Industrial Hardware. Stop by and check it all out; I have a lot of inventory!
  2. On Sunday, November 11th I will host a Kiln Opening Party at my house between 4:00 and 6:30pm. Want to be there? Since parking is limited to 4 cars, the first 4 people who let me know they would like to attend will be the guests. There will be snacks and beverages, I will have all of my ceramics out, and at 5:00ish, I will open my kiln to see how a whole month’s worth of projects turned out after their final (glaze) firing. It gives you a chance to see a part of the process I go through, and get a look at the latest stuff before anyone else. You are welcome to purchase pots, but are not obligated to do so. Its just a fun excuse to have a party. Text or call me if you’d like to join in the fun.

Fresh out of the kiln!

Happy Autumn! You haven’t heard from me in a while because I haven’t been selling at any local markets for a month, and because I am off to visit my dad in October, I’ll be missing the Second Saturday Market in October. (I am looking into selling at the Mendenhall Mall Craft Market toward the end of October…I’ll post that info when I return from Michigan.) Nevertheless, I will post photos of some of my new products and, as always, you can let me know if there is something you want.
