Pottery Blog

My office is overflowing with pottery things I've made so I listed some ceramic pins and soap dishes in my shop. All between $10-20 each. I love pottery! It's so much fun. Update: All sold out! Thank you!


Ceramics is my hobby since 1.5 years and my office is also filled with ceramic items that i made :)

What lovely items!! I love your style! I’m sure you are doing it more for yourself, but I definitely think your things have the potential to sell well!! that grey kitty is divine, though alas sold out.

If you're aiming for soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies, the secret seems to be baking at 325° instead of the usual 350°. That was suggested in the San Francisco Chronicle recipe I've used for years although it took me forever to notice—and follow—the temperature change. I always wondered why my cookies weren't as soft as those I remembered my boss making. The temperature makes a huge difference.

The recipe says to bake the cookies for 12 minutes but the time really depends on your oven and the size of the cookies. I usually do 11 minutes.

So happy to snag one of your pieces! I've been thinking about doing a wheel class next year. Emma and I did a pottery class that was all hand building which would have been a lot more fun if we could have had any say in what we made!

I remember when she was born, I followed you already then! She is really a miracle and I am glad you are all doing so well and had such an amazing birthday weekend!
