I'm in the midst of Holiday production...
Fortunately many accounts have been placing their orders early this year...
Of course by potter/clay standards 5-6 weeks is not a long time when you factor in making the pieces, drying times and firing schedules,may be some refiirng included .. it will be Dec. 1st in a flash.
My goal is to have all current rattle orders out next week...If the weather will cooperate...is that wishful thinking ?
Then i hope to get some time to make sculptures..
I've have a neighbor who belongs to Friends of BARC a group who volunteers at the city animal shelter...BARC is always in need of supplies and donations..
I've been considering designing a tile/plaque, easy to produce, from which a portion of the sales would be donated to different animal welfare organizations...i already donate, when i have extra funds, to the Houston Humane Society.
During this bad economic time we are seeing a large number of pets being abandoned...if you cannot keep your animal please do not just shove it out the door to fend for itself..how cruel...take it to one of the many animal shelters .
