happy holidaze

Thanksgiving has just passed and I am squeezing out the last hours of a break with family and friends in my home away from home, New Orleans, LA. The elephant ears are prolific, citrus trees are heavy with fruit, the sun is strong and the breeze is warm and I'm having a hard time embracing the hectic that is the holidays. In this moment life is feeling lazy and easy but I know there is an eight hour drive home in my future and then three weeks of production, sales, meetings and more until I can finally catch my breath before hopping a plane to visit my first home and the people that matter in it, Philadelphia.

So then, let's get to it, to the business of things...

If you follow along on Instagram you may already know that today there is a Small Business Saturday promotion going on. Every order that comes through today is shipped for FREE! If you missed that one then sign up for the newsletter so that you can get in on the next one! All subscribers will be getting a Cyber Monday shop update preview Sunday night at 8pm with a 25% off discount code. The three bud vases featured above will all be available.

Then, starting the first weekend in December, Athens, GA gets into pottery-sale-mania. I am so happy and lucky to be a part of such a prolific community of potters. Check out this map and key below to see who is selling what, when...


If you are looking for Forged & Found Pottery, these following dates are the ones to remember...

Saturday, December 9th & Sunday December 10th I will be a part of the group sale happening at my studio, Southern Star Studio. Both days we will be open from 9am-4pm.


Sunday December 10th, there will be the last online shop update of 2017. So many new pots will be available for the first time online plus restocking of some of the best sellers! There will definitely be a newsletter going out regarding details about launch time, plus a discount code for subscribers. Sign up!

Thursday, December 14th and Friday, December 15th I will be selling my pots at the annual Big City Bread Holiday Market. This was a fantastic event that I took part of for the first time last year. It is also the only market event I currently take part in outside of the sales at Southern Star Studio. If you are in the area please stop by! Bonfires will be crackling, food will be available, and the wine will be flowing in such a festive atmosphere you can't help but get swept up in a holiday mood. This is an evening market and runs 5pm-9pm both nights.
