I dropped off some pieces at my photographer's studio a couple of days ago in order to have professional shots of my new work. I'm so excited to see what he does. This is the "before" shot of several of my mugs... Stay tuned for the "after" shot coming soon!

Pots by Matthew Kennedy
I got an email today from clay artist Matthew Kennedy asking me to check out his work.
Wow! Impressed with his pots, his process, his output, his marketing. This guy has got it going on!
He's got two sites. One is urnnews.com, where he and other artists market their keepsake urns. He uses another site - TooTallsPottery (named after his beloved Saint Bernard) - to market bonsai pots, and you can also read more about his studio there.
Matthew looks like he's having success as a full-time potter. Bravo!

As I look around my studio gallery, it becomes pretty clear that I enjoy making my mark on the surface of pots. Carving. Etching. Altering.
Here are a couple of little carved pots sitting on top of a case. The restaurant below my studio has an American flag hanging under the window... It's reflecting back up through my window and the red stripes appear in this picture.
One of the things I love about my studio is all the windows... though it got a tad warm in there during the recent heat wave!
