a little something new...

i'm excited about a some new ideas i've been cooking up in the studio...these fun little dishes were inspired by a "pouch of wonders" my mom gave to me a while was a bag full of vintage lace and tattered fabrics. i was totally taken with some of the gorgeous and delicate patterns in the lace. i wished there was some way to "preserve" this tattered lace...and then it hit me...there is a way! i began to press the lace into clay and well, the rest is pretty self explanatory, yes these little dishes were born...I've also been stamping different words in the dishes as well...i'm really excited to expand on this idea...many of these pieces will be making their debut February 11th at the Art for Hearts Charity Event sponsored by G-Magazine that I will be a guest artist at...stay tuned for more photos...

HAPPY 2010!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! i want to thank all of you readers and lily pottery fans for being so supportive through the year of 2009. you guys ROCK! i couldn't do it without you guys and i'm so thankful for the support. 2009 was a big year for Lily Pottery and i'm so very excited to see what 2010 holds. i'm getting nestled into my new studio and i'm planning to start the new year off with a fresh view of my goals. I'm going to Market- the international gift show in Atlanta GA this coming wednesday, January 6, and i'm so excited. my first market trip this past July was so amazing. it stretched and grew me as an artist, business owner and individual in ways that i could've never imagined and i'm so excited to take the next step and see what this Market holds for me. I'll be sure to update you guys on the progress, but seriously, i couldn't do it without the undying support of you faithful LP fans! through the mountain top experiences and the super low valleys that Lily Pottery's treaded through this year, you guys were and are amazing and i just can't say thank you enough the the true friends and supporters who didn't leave my side in the rough guys know who you are, and i can't start to name all of you, but please know, i love you guys and keep sharing your love! you guys ROCK and let's make 2010 rock even more than 2009!
much peace and love to you all this year.
