October is the month of many deadlines. It is when stores would like their orders shipped to begin their holiday season sales. All stores. Of course it is impossible to accommodate all requests, so I try to be very honest with myself, as well as my clients. I can only produce so much, fit so much in the kilns. Looking back, though, I moved a lot of work through my studio in the past thirty days, no wonder I’m wiped out, and my hands are dry and wrinkled:
400 Lil Bub wee teas, 120 tumblers for RISD, 30 dinner plates for RISD’s President’s house, and many more bowls, plates, serving pieces for some great stores across the country. Whew.
