Gangsters, Freaks, Pimps,Thugs and a little Arsenic for Xmas.

Just in time for the holidays..."fresh from the kiln" mugs and more. Like many of you out there I have been in a tizzy rushing around trying to finish pieces, and getting things ready for Christmas. The holidays are crazy enough just the way they are but I have to add in to the mix a little surgery to take care of a hernia issue...uuurrghh. Its an in and out procedure but its the recovery time that's really going to do me in.

That's another reason for my rushing around...I have been counting the days before I have to hit the hospital and trying to squeeze in another glaze firing or decal firing or just getting other pieces ready for when I am ready.

I do have some good news for an end of a crappy year to share...I got a new job. I am the new Ceramics Studio Coordinator for the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts...and I am thrilled! The PCA here in the steel city is a very well known and wonderful place and I will be taking up the reins for the ceramics department. Here's the link so you can check all they have to offer for yourself...WOOHOO!!!

I am going to keep on sharing more good news...I was included in this article from Pittsburgh Magazine...Pittsburgh Foodie Gift Guide : 15 ways you can keep it local this year....check this link . It is a great article and I am beyond happy to have been included in this stellar list of businesses and indie artists/crafters.

Ok, one more...I am with a new gallery/boutique smack square in the middle of downtown Pittsburgh...its called Boutique 208...the link will take you to their Facebook page. They are an artist run space in an awesome location and so far its going really well! If you are in the Pittsburgh area you should stop over and check it stuff, Kirsten Lowe Rebel's work, Pittsburgh Pottery's stuff and so much more!

But that's enough of me blowing my own horn here...check out the images of new work that I am loading up the Etsy store with!
my new candle-scapes...fits a tea light and illuminates nicely.

Congratulations Kyle! The PCA looks amazing! I also like the write up you linked to. Great promo for local businesses, and you obviously have a fan there!

I hope your surgery goes well, and a speedy recovery. Good luck getting it all done before then.

Have a fabulous holidays!

Thanks Carter...I am really excited about the new gig and it is a great place fo'sho'...I have been very fortunate with my work and getting it out there this Fall season and that sure helps...

Its pain pill city for me right now...don't go getting a hernia anytime soon...

Have a warm and relaxing Holidays my friend!
