Carving some mugs today and working on orders. Happy Friday, everyone! 🍂

Wedding registries and wholesale orders are on today’s throwing schedule. My wheel is looking pretty in her new shade of taupe. 🍂

Today we are excited to be a part of #thebigcrafty in Asheville! We are all set up and will be here until 7:30 tonight! Come say hey!! 🍂

We are so excited to have been invited to be a part of @thebigcrafty tomorrow! If you are in the Asheville area, or want to take a little day trip, stop by booth 130 and say hello! We will be there along with so many other amazing makers from 12-7:30pm! It’s The Big Crafty’s 10 year celebration. Come show your support! 🍂

Thank you to all of those amazing businesses who have reached out to us recently about wholesale orders! We are so excited to work with these wonderful new people and reconnect with some other businesses who have worked with us in the past. Our board is filling up and I am staying up into the wee hours of the morning! It is amazing how God provides. So thankful for this lovey turn around in our business. Happy Thursday, everyone! The weekend is almost here! 🍂

We have been busy with emails and more work on the business end lately. I am so excited to be finally working in the studio! We have a beautiful wedding registry in the works as well as a special kiln opening! So happy to be in the clay right now and not on the computer! 🍂

If you haven’t already seen my story from yesterday, I am actually starting a special kiln load! These pieces are all things that I have had sketches of or ideas about for a long time. I may or may not ever make these again, so you could be grabbing a one-of-a-kind pot! I can tell you that texture is involved and there may be a few little woodland touches here and there. Now, back to work! 🍂

Today is one of those dark and dreary days. Not just literally (the weather here isn’t spectacular) but also my parents just left. It’s always so hard when your family leaves especially when they miss seeing their grandchild. So I am laying here in my dark room while Levi naps away. Not really much else to say there. Just sort of the mood at the moment... perhaps I should go work it off. 🍂

Well we are back from our family trip and after dealing with our power not working, our broken AC unit, and our internet being fried... I am back at work! I have heard from several people recently about ordering dinnerware sets. These are some of my very favorite things to do for people! We love being a part of your family time. There are so many fun combinations to mix and match and use with your loved ones. If you have any ideas for sets or questions regarding dinnerware, shoot me a message or an email! We look forward to sharing some quality family time, laughs, and conversations with you! 🍂

Being a small business owner is quite the balancing act (especially when you have a small child). We have decided to scale back a bit and only apply to a couple of shows a year. We have loved meeting so many people, both customers and makers, through these past few years at shows but my time as a potter and a mother is very limited. With some recent happenings with show applications and life decisions, we have decided as a family that I can no longer manage both with ease. That being said, I would love to continue to work on all of your custom orders and wholesale orders from home! We are continuing to add work to the online shop page and I have several ideas for special kiln openings that I would love to tackle. We love you all and appreciate everyone who has welcomed us into their show family! Here’s to a new page in the Oak Leaf Pottery story. 🍂

Happy #mugshotmonday!! We are enjoying family time this week (with very limited cell service) and are relaxing a bit. We hope that you find some peace in your week and a second for a quiet sip of coffee or tea from your favorite cup! 🍂

Hello, Thursday! We only have a couple more days until we depart for a family trip and I am still pushing through some orders. When we get back I plan to make some more of these plates but with stamps! Think trees, leaves, acorns, and pine cones!! 🍂
