Hello CSK Supporters!
While it may have been awhile since you’ve heard from me last, I would like to reassure you all that I have not forgotten about your generous gifts! It just so happens that I have a big shiny reminder in the corner of my shop—which by the way has been firing quite a lot lately. With just one week before the Des Moines Arts Festival, I am making the final preparations for the big day and wrapping up what has been a very busy month or so of production. As I wait for the kiln to cool enough to unload and load again, I thought I’d take a bit of time to thank you all again. Without each one of your gifts, no matter what the dollar amount, this really would not be possible. Together, the CSK amount totaled $1,777 (about a THIRD of the bill)! Thank you so much! Now it is time for me to start paying you all back!
Unfortunately, nothing will be available to claim until after the Des Moines Arts Festival (June 24-26). You are of course welcome to come visit me during the festival and pick out your goodies then, but that would be quite the drive for most of you! So, as soon as I recover from the three day event, I will post photos on my website of pieces available to claim of what’s left from the festival. Shortly thereafter, I will get back to making work and will post new photos after each glaze firing. You can expect a newsletter with updates, keeping you in the loop of what’s new in the studio as well as my travel plans for possible meet-up delivery (as opposed to ‘in-shop’ pick-up or mail delivery).
For now, here are a few teaser photos of pieces I will be taking to the Des Moines Arts Festival to get you excited for what could soon be yours!
If you have any requests or suggestions, please feel free to send them my way and I’ll see what I can do!
