More stuff available at Spiritways

Just some of the pottery that was taken over to Spiritways.
More pottery has been taken over to Spiritways (3301 E. Colfax, Denver Colorado). The pottery includes several items that are similarly glazed. An example is this chalice, cauldron, offering plate and lidded jar. Click on the picture to see it larger---ain't the pentacles on the plate and chalice awesome? A person could buy several of these pieces to create a set of ritual tools.

New pendants up on Etsy

Handmade Ceramic Blue Spiral Sun Pendant
I finally got around to editing some of the pendant pictures I took a couple of weeks ago. I am doing the rest of them tonight before going to bed. My wife has listed nine of the pendants on Etsy tonight; the rest will be listed on Etsy sometime before the end of the week. The pendants are selling for ten dollars (one dollar US shipping/three dollars international shipping)---though I think that she has a few that will be listed for seven dollars apiece.

Falling behind in my photography duties

Kitty approved since 2011.
I have been falling behind in my photography duties. I took a whole bunch of photos ten days ago, and another batch of photos a whole month ago, that I have not edited yet. Part of the delay is the bloody heat; the other part is the periodic depression that I am prone to (most of it caused by being a struggling freelance writer---and there not being enourgh hours during the summer to make up for the fact that I am a full time college student the rest of the year). There were also a couple of events that cropped up that I did not plan on happening. Hopefully, I manage to get my rear in gear and get the editing work done soon. ---MDE

Been taking pottery photos for a long time

Assorted pottery by Toni Penn of Celtic Soul Jewelry and Pottery.
Morgan here---Today, I am busy editing the latest round of jewelry photos. Earlier today, while doing a "brute search" on the computer for a photo that Toni wanted to consult of a past pottery piece, I realized that I have been taking pottery photos for six years now. Some of the photos I am still pleased with (aka I still like the photos). Like this photo which was taken in September 2008 of assorted herb jars, a mortar and pestle, and a cauldron---I still think that this is a good photo. The herbs in the background, spearmint and mugwort, are from the herb garden that grows outside of the pottery studio.

Toni is busy throwing more stuff for both the September 10th Handmade Hookup Craftshow and Spiritways as well as writing up descriptions for some pendant pieces that are going to be put up on Etsy by the end of the week.

Morning Cup of Sunshine

Morning Cup of Seashine 1 MDE 2011
Like many people, my wife starts off the day with a cup of coffee. Personally, I can't stand coffee, but I do indulge in my own cup of morning sunshine---a soda (Pepsi, Coke, Dr Pepper, something with cafferine in it) and a few drops of sweet chestnut flower essence (it is supposed to help with low self-esteem and depression). On the pottery front, more mugs are being scheduled in the production cycle.

[The picture used in this post is a kitty paw mug (the paw print is from one of our cats) and a sunflower from the garden.]
