Thank YOU!

This Sunflower Friendship platter says it best: "Blessed be all the friends who grow through life with us." Youngman and I want to thank all of you who have grown with us and offered support  with your kind words and actions as we do our best to make a living as potters! Believe me, your smiles as you wait in line at art shows, your kindness on the phone, your understanding if I call you with a concern (there will always be occasional minor flaws,) your trust that I will make it pretty, your patience if it's a redo, and your gratitude that I wouldn't send out anything that does not meet my standards all make the long hours of work worthwhile. Our customers are the most wonderful people and we are blessed because of you.
Winter Art Show
November 8th 4-9pm & 9th 10am-5pm 
If you are in town, please join us at the ArtCenterTC's Winter Art Show at the Holiday Inn West Bay in Traverse City, MI. Youngman is packing up the shelves as I try to get this newsletter out - just in time (?) to let you know about the show! We took the last load out of the kiln this morning and it looks mighty fine! We hope you will find a pretty bowl or platter to bless someone special in your life or to grace your own home!

1# Friendship Blessing Bowls in Garden Flower or Lake Designs

$21.50 each. All Bowls have words on one side and a blessing or saying on the other. These make great Christmas gifts! Garden Flower blessing options: "Friends add beauty to the garden of our every day lives" or "Blessed be the friends who grow through life with us." Lake design blessing options: "Blessed be the friends...  who sail through life with us" (with a boat) ...who walk through life with us (with bear) ....who grow through life with us (regular Lake with trees)
Of course, we have tons more blessings such as "May your life be blessed with all things loving, kind and wonderful" "May your home be filled with love, laughter and peace" "May your life be blessed with unconditional love and endless joy" "Today I am guided by my inner wisdom and compassionate heart." There is something for any occassion and lots for holiday giving. 


"Julie, your bowl was a tremendous hit! The couple we gave it to was sure they saw themselves in the sailboat. Thank you for providing a beautiful piece that will make many memories for this new family." Kathy Barker 10.16.2012
"My friend loved the lake scene dish.  She started to cry as this was the design she had seen and wanted. Thank you so much.  Christmas order will be coming shortly." Sue Hoffman 10.30.2012


Bear and Deer Bowls and Platters

We are sure you will find someone who will love one of these sweet bowls and platter! We sold out of the bear and deer at the Glen Arbor Art Show this year. They were a favorite! I am very fond of the sweet little speckled faun I paint with it's mother. The deer are more subtle than the darker bear and are often given for wedding gifts. I have a nice large oval with 3 or 4 deer, come check it out at the show. We hope you love them too!

Write what you want!

Can't fit it all on the front of the platter? Use the back! We often add a happy birthday or anniversary message on the underside rim of a platter. These are things we can discuss when I call to confirm your order.
Now you know how those perfect black dots get on the blue daisies!
Have a Blessed
Holy Season

May you find your soul nourished in simple, sweet and unexpected ways.

May you be blessed with deep inner peace.

May love guide you on your journey in this life and beyond.

Now and forever.
