So if you are not familiar with Etsy, (GO CHECK IT OUT IMMEDIATELY) they have these little collections called treasuries that are selected by members and put together around a theme. It what you see on the home page of etsy, but there are hundreds more of those collections under the treasury button.
I got one of my favorite pieces included in a new treasury all about clowns
"Life is a Circus, and We are All Just Clowns"
go see...

Thanks for the Visit and the Input!

Another couple of shots of the Studio Tour set up...

So wrapped up the Studio Tour! Thank you to all who ventured out my way and gave me your positive feedback. Its a lot of work to clean up a studio and invite people into my inner safe space of creativity. Thank you to those that recognized that and appreciated it.. Your words and comments made it worth my while. I am feeling pretty pumped and excited about making art. It can get pretty damn lonely and strange when you spend week after week working in the studio alone. So the input and reflection of my work from my visitors was a much needed lifting of the spirits. I am working on putting a few new pieces up everyday on etsy, so make sure you check it out. And finally I am getting a bit faster at that process.. I am feeling like i have good head start on Christmas which is great. Now have to tear down the gallery space and turn it back into a pottery studio got lots of clay to make between now and the middle of Nov..

Here is some pictures of the pottery process I took last production run...
