It’s been a bit since I’ve written, so I thought I’d post a short hello and studio goings on, lest you think I’ve fallen into a bucket full of clay. Last weekend I was able to attend the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival in Jefferson, WI. It’s the closest festival to home and I love seeing all the familiar faces and fiber friends. The harbinger of the fall season complete with flocks of migrating geese and crisp sweatery mornings. It’s also the primer to the largest show of the year, New York Sheep and Wool, aka Rhinebeck. As I’ve said in the past, ceramics is a process, and it takes some time to get the studio all primed and running. Those who attend Rhinebeck can send a thank – you to Wi for getting the ball rolling. Now we’re chugging along, getting ready to shift into high overdrive in the few short weeks to Rhinebeck. (I’m currently pretending my calendar doesn’t exist, a childish but effective survival tactic)
Again, I’ve designed a special mug to commemorate this year’s New York Sheep and Wool Festival. (More on that later, but for a little tease- think woods)
As I spend most of my studio time making all the work for the show, I oft neglect to post here, as it is so easily slipped off of my to-do list. I’m going to try and post a bit more frequently in the next few weeks so you can see some of the great things I’ll have available in my booth! I’m especially fond of these floral bowls I’ve been playing with.
As always, if your interested in more of the goings on in the studio, follow me on instagram, as I often take quick photos of my process and post them there.
Please help me bring along the forms and designs you’re most interested in!
PostÂ a comment with your jenniethepotter hopes, I love granting pottery wishes.

Thanks for taking the time away from your making, to bring us into it for a moment! I love the birch tree work on your IG. I’m only north enough to see the occasional birch tree, but when in Russia would walk through, and sit in the parks of birch forests and find a quiet spot just to be. A mug would be those meditative moments held in a hand – lovely.
My mother and I will be going to NYS Sheep and Wool for the first time – I’m excited to see your booth and would love a sheep on hills mug for my weekend coffee time :-). Or the special Rhinebeck edition mug!
