On a Good Note: New Pottery Abounds!

First and foremost let me say that I hope you and your family are all safe and healthy. That’s most important to me. We practice our safe distancing and are all well.

As I adjust to the new “normal” I found the silver lining online. It took weeks to learn the photography techniques in a portable photo booth. The lighting is everything! Anyway I worked on it day and night. My Etsy site is fully up and running. You can click on Etsy above and it leads you right there. Remember it’s FREE SHIPPING for the time being!

All shows are in limbo this summer. I expect there MAY be some news come fall. Please check the new shop often as I add new things weekly. I appreciate each and every order, large and small. And custom work or large orders can be easily handled over the phone. Call me at 847-852-0636 anytime.

Stay tuned Local Folks, I’ll be hosting a Drive-Up Pottery Sale in July here at the studio! Super exciting idea I am working on.

I miss you ALL and your smiling friendly faces the very most!

Love, Jill
