2017 was yet another eventful year for me. Some of the pottery related things I planned at the beginning of the year worked out, some didn't, some wasn't planned but happened.
The things that didn't happen - I didn't update this blog until December and I also didn't have time to make soup bowls for Great Bowls of Fire. :(
The things that happened as planned -
I contributed 80 some pieces of Populace (that's the reason why I weren't able to make soup bowls).

|My display for the Guild's Christmas Sale|
Oh I made another teapot too.
Something that wasn't planned - I submitted my mugs for the Magnificent Mug Show at the Stÿll gallery in Elora, ON and 15 of them were accepted. It was my very first time to have my work at a gallery outside of Ottawa. Packing and shipping was a big deal, unfortunately 3 out of the 15 didn't make it to Elora in one piece. :( Overall it was a great experience and especially I love to make mugs.
I also added work back to the newly renovated Stonewall Wildes gallery back in November.
That was a lot that happened this year!
Looking forward to 2018.....
With the successful Christmas Sale, I will need to start making pieces early. A couple of my friends provided me some good ideas: garlic keeper (which I started) and milk jug. A customer from the Christmas Sale is looking for more pebble bowls to make a set. And I would like to make more mugs with the new style and really get working on the bowls for Great Bowls of Fire. Also, I would like to make some more cappuccino mugs as the other ones didn't work out too well. This is a good list!
