Viva Las Vegas!!

Well…Las Vegas was great! I’m not sure when the last time any of you have visited Las Vegas it changes so fast! Since I was there less than a year ago they have already finished condos on the strip and now there is a new casino/condo opening 2008 called Cosmopolitan. It’s outrageous with condos & hotel, gambling casino (of course), theater, a huge spa, and tons of shops! Vegas is such a fun place to visit…I am always ready to go!

Are you aware that this Saturday October 21st is “Paint Your Own Pottery Day”?? Be sure to check out the link to find a local contemporary studio and hear about the awesome specials they are running! I can’t wait to hear and see what fabulous projects you have done! Send me pictures of your masterpiece you create on Saturday and I will post it!!

Wait until you see the new NEON SATIN GLAZE technique guide!! I am so totally thrilled!!!! The artwork and techniques that are shown are absolutely amazing!!! Once the pictures are available I will be sure to post them!!! It takes a totally different feel than the dinnerware photo below!

Until next time…Get fired up about ceramics!!!

Artfully yours,

What's new with you!?

It’s finally October and I already feel like so much is going on! Next week I am going to Las Vegas for a few days! (Lets hope I win big!) Last year when I went gambling didn’t treat me well…although the shopping always does! The next big adventure is a bridal shower for my cousin’s fiancĂ©e that I am helping with! The favors are absolutely adorable! Once they are complete I will post a picture of them for you to enjoy!

We have some fabulous new NEON colors in our Satin Glaze line that just have me so excited to create something fresh! These colors are so vibrant and are going to look awesome on my table filled with yummy appetizers or desserts for upcoming parties!!

Another new and innovative concept from Duncan is Masterpiece in Minutes™ (“MIM”)!! Which is a one-stop shop ceramic station…you pick from 3 vases, coordinating glazes, and your lid embellishment pack (lid to vase & raffia). I have been talking about this program to my mom she wanted to see what it was all about. So…of course I work at a fabulous company that has various classes available to take…and we each painted a vase from MIM. It was so easy not to mention FUN! When I took my mom her vase once it had been fired, she was so happy and just ecstatic on how it looked! A couple days later she had some friends over for a party and each person commented on how unique & beautiful her vase was…”Where did she get it??” her response was “Oh, I made it!!” Everyone there wanted to hear about it and make one!!!

Since it’s starting to actually feel like fall is anyone working on any cool projects?? I am hoping to get a couple of Halloween decorations squeezed into my busy weeks ahead! My top 2 on my list to make are a slant Cat Box and Skeleton Box. Let me know what you are up to!!!

Artfully Yours,
