Handmade cups for gift giving

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.
