Darling is a beautiful new print magazine with lots of inspirational stories to share. Thank you Natalie Lynn Borton for writing a such a lovely article about Elephant Ceramics.  I always feel honored to be featured in magazines, online publications and blogs.  I have to say Darling won me over when I saw this story posted on their blog about a chihuahua named Tuna.  If you love dogs you will love this story! Thank you, Darling, for sharing stories like that....along with all the features about interesting women!

a big thank you!

A big THANK YOU for making my shop update on Sunday another exciting event!  I am still amazed when everything sells out so quickly.  I have many wonderful repeat customers that now must have significant collections of my ceramics.  I am shipping all over the world including Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada, The Netherlands and Hawaii.  I've met and corresponded with many interesting people all because of my ceramics!  The opportunities, and these new friendships and relationships, make this such a fulfilling venture.  

When I started making my ceramics I never, ever dreamed that there would be such a demand for them.  I wish I could make enough pieces for everyone who wants one.  But I can't because I hand make every piece myself which limits the quantity I have to sell.  As you can imagine with any art or craft, you make many things.....some are successful, and some are not.  I only sell the successful pieces, the pieces I love. I do hope to start updating my shop a little more frequently. Since I moved to Maine full-time, I now have more time to devote to my passion with clay which means there should be a few more pieces available for my future sales!
