So, after a lot of agonizing, I've decided to take an indefinite hiatus from producing my current line of pottery to explore some new directions. While this is sad, it has also opened up exciting new opportunities. My biggest news is that I will be starting a new job at Northern Clay Center this month as Web and Communications Associate. I'm really excited about the opportunity to be part of the team at such an amazing arts organization. Another new opportunity my hiatus has opened up is the chance to recharge my background in graphic design. I'm taking Continuing Education classes at mcad in digital illustration and art licensing and I LOVE it! I'm having a lot of fun taking my designs off of clay and onto paper and pixels. I'm currently obsessed with paper cutting and scanning every cool texture I can find.

What's left of my current inventory (quite a bit!) will be available this week at First Thursday in conjunction with our annual Spring Studio Cleanout Sale (my studiomates will also have sale items). All my tiles and selected pottery will be on sale. Everything will be available while supplies last (for those of you who've been coming to my shows for years and planning to buy that special piece from me at the next show...the time has come). And, thanks for all your support over the last 10 years...I wouldn't have been able to make this business work as long as it did without my family, friends and loyal customers behind me.
