november, the month ahead
It's November and now the holiday hustle is inescapable. I am doing my best at keeping focused, delegating time for both work and rest and enjoying the process as it unfurls. This year I am focusing on creating stock for both local holiday craft markets and my online shop, including a web sale for subscribed customers on Cyber Monday (November 27th). But before that there are a couple other important November dates to note. This Saturday, November 4th, is our Open Studio Day. On the first Saturday of every month, the studio is open to the public with pottery demos and pots for sale from all of our studio potters  All are welcome to stop by to shop and visit during the hours of 10am-4pm. Southern Star Studio is located at 180 Cleveland Avenue in Athens, Ga. And for Instagram followers, on Monday November 6th I will be sponsoring a giveaway. Follow along @forgedandfoundpottery to get more details and enter for your chance to win a free piece of my pottery. And stay tuned for next month! There is a lot of news and important dates coming up. We will be hosting a large group studio sale and I will be participating in a local holiday craft market for Athenians who are interested in picking up some local pots! Signing up for the Forged & Found newsletter is the best way to stay in the loop. Every email that is sent comes to you with a coupon code, photos, and no spam whatsoever.

welcome
I have been playing around with this new website for a little over a month now. A couple of weeks ago I listed some products and called it a day with fingers crossed that someone would attempt to buy something and that the order would come through, no problem. And that very thing happened! Which made me feel grateful and happy. I also simultaneously felt the fire under my ass to get this thing a little more polished. And so here is my first news post! Thank you for stopping by, for reading, browsing or buying. All of your support is so truly appreciated. I spent the end of Summer transitioning out of pottery as a side hustle to pottery as my livelihood and it has been an exciting journey. I am in my third round of Fall production and in another week or two I will be delving in Holiday production. In the meantime I am currently doing a proper shop update that will most likely be taking place on Monday evening, October 16th. Stay tuned, check back or sign up on the mailing list to see what's new.
