Happy New Year! Yes, I’m a little behind. Let’s do some catching up.
December turned out to be a very busy month for me. I started out by designing new postcards and web banners for my online shop and blog. It took a while (my graphic design skills were a little rusty), but I finally came up with a look that I’m really happy with.
Then I had the privilege of attending Art Basel and Design Miami. There was so much to see – it was a bit overwhelming. We weren’t suppose to take photographs, but I managed to sneak in a few. Below are a few of my favorite pieces.
We had an amazing dinner at db modern in downtown Miami. I had pumpkin ravioli with truffles and lobster. TRUFFLES AND LOBSTER! Not my typical Thursday night meal. Probably one of the best dishes I’ve ever had.
Miami was great, but I was eager to get back into the studio where I had a custom mug order to finish for a long-time client. Not the best picture but hopefully you get the general idea. The creamy white porcelain shows through a glossy clear glaze and white pebbles float up from the bottom. I wish I had taken better photos, but I was eager to pack them up and ship them off so they could join a set of bowls and whirls in their new home.
I also started on some new work- striped vases in warm grey. The one on the right was gifted to some very special friends and the one on the left is available in my shop. I’m looking forward to making more.
And of course there was lots of packing and many trips to the post office, followed by a flurry of holiday activities. I’m excited to get back into the swing of things and get working on some new pieces. Cheers to 2014!
