Spring is here!

Spring is finally here and the weeping cherry tree is still with us despite this winter's punishing snow storms and winds, and the best efforts of the carpenter ants and resident red-bellied and downy woodpeckers. This beautiful tree is again raining pink petals on the deck and life moves on.

Nature's awakening this March was accompanied by renewed activity in my Etsy shop. This has been a very good month for Glynt Pottery, so far, and I thank all those people who have shown an interest in my work, including several returning customers.

I was honored to have two pieces included in Etsy Finds this month.

This stoneware box was featured on March 13th. It was hand built from clay slabs that were impressed using a clay stamp. The box is 5 inches tall and would look great in any room of the house!

This double-walled bowl was featured on March 25th. This piece was thrown upside down on the potter's wheel. It looks stunning with an ikebana flower arrangement, especially if you were to arrange pebbles or small stones around the extra wide rim. It's also a great bowl to hold potpurri or sea glass, and it makes a great dip dish!
