Cyber Monday Sale for 20% Off in my Etsy Store!

The title says it all! In honor of Cyber Monday and because I’ve just added 25 brand new listings to my Etsy store, I added a 20% off discount code for any purchase through this Friday, 12/6/2013. Please enter the code “cyber20” at checkout before completing payment. I will be adding more throughout the week, as well. 🙂 Check out all of my handmade porcelain mug, bowls, serving ware, jewelry, etc. just in time for your Christmas shopping needs or the equally enjoyable act of self-gifting at Alazan Ceramics on Etsy.



11 Fresh Etsy Shop Listings!

I’m gearing up for all those Christmas shoppers who want to support independent craftsmen and shop handmade! In the interest of making as many options available as possible I’m going to be listing most of my inventory over the next few weeks. Check out what’s already up on Alazan Ceramics on Etsy and I’ll let you know as I add more.

Here’s a teaser photo of my pottery display from the most recent Fall Sale & Show.


Business as usual in the studio

I have once again filled my big Skutt electric to the gills. Apparently my volume management skills are still on par, as I only made three pieces too many. Those orphans will just get priority next time.

There’s a lot of traditional forms for me, including bowls, cups, mugs, cream/sugar sets, pitchers, and sauce boats. New stuff like colanders, bowls with mug handles, updated pitcher forms, lots of sprig molds, inlaid slip, and slip trailing, a number of inlaid slip glaze test cups, and progressively larger item dimensions are looking pretty promising. I’ve also been gradually whittling down the overall weight with thinner walls, trying not to compromise durability.

Going to see the Jeff Oestreich lecture at the Craft Guild of Dallas tonight. I’m really excited to see the slides and hear what Mr. Oestreich has to say. He’s definitely one of the heavyweights in the U.S. pottery community. Click on the photo of Jeff Oestreich’s teabowl below to go to his website.

Pretty classic example of what his work is all about


Also, I’ve posted a bunch of fresh pots in my Etsy shop, if you’re interested. Be sure to check back for a review of the lecture. Thanks for the atencion!
