How many handmade mugs do you have in your cupboard? My clay sisters and I have been sending morning images of the cup that we are using for our first coffee of the day. It’s been fun! A virtual exhibit sharing our personal cup collections. I think I need to do a live video sharing the mugs that are currently available for your collections.
I have personal favorites that I have a hard time sharing with others. It’s been a test for me but I am learning. This quarantining might create a better “Cyndi”. 😊I find myself drinking coffee most of the morning in one mug. Switching to water using a tumbler. Then, moving on to wine in the evening. Of course, always, using a handmade cup. A walk or getting on the elliptical daily is in order so that I can have that wine.
Many of you know, that we moved C2C Gallery from a downtown location into an online gallery. Seeing all of the artwork, handling it, and taking new pictures has made me “ooh and aah” many times a day. Such lovely pieces! We truly represent very talented people.
I love having wine out of Julie Dever’s wood-fired tumblers or Richard Aerni’s yunomis. Along, with all of my other handmade cups. Do you find yourself gravitating towards one special piece? Send me a picture. I would love to see it.
My phone just went off. The Governor of Michigan has announced that residents of Michigan will remain under quarantine until April 30. If you are a potter, which I am, there are always things to make and try something new, mix glazes, fix, and make again.
I have been thinking about making tall yard totems. I have pre-made paper clay in the studio. Perfect for this type of project. Are you working on anything that you haven’t tried before? Painting a room, gardening, learning a language or playing a musical instrument? Try it and see. You, just might surprise yourself.
Consider purchasing a mug today. When you buy from C2C or another potter, you are helping them put food on the table. Plus, 5% of your purchase goes to our Children’s Food Basket. Every little bit helps. Thank you. Take good care. C2.
