Coming up on 12 years of being a potter, 9 years pursuing my art full time to sustain myself, I am finding some interesting synergies, ways to move and take care of myself, digging deep into the wells of my spirit and creativity, coming up still hungry for more. Hungry for more spiritual and historical discourse, hungry for the incessant ache in my soul to create, hungry to refine my skills over and over again until satisfied (is it possible? 🤭) Who knew reaching back in time to the baby potter I once was– starry eyed and captivated, that I would find myself again renewed — physically, spiritually. Now I, the mother of thousands birthed, thank the maiden for all she conquered so I can now in the present fine tune this art filled life, enrich it, and finally take care– water the roots and grow more beautiful things .🌹🖤.Good evening my loves, I am popping on to remind you that this weekend is the final time to see me at the Virginia Renaissance Faire this year! It has been a very lovely time thus far, an absolute joy to see/meet you/rekindle energies before I dive deep into my busiest time of year. I must say that the support I have received has added major kindling to the fire in me, and I am so excited to begin the pennsic/mdrf/online update make-cycle ahead. There’s so much cool shii coming soon hah! Come by one last time for hugs n mugs this weekend ! 😊

Emerging through the realms of winter, I find myself grasping for something ancient, enigmatic, and ‘unearthed.’ Meet my Rune Magick series, a loving act of engraving continuous patterns using ancient characters intuitively until the piece feels ‘complete’. I am considering this a lil side project as I make more intensive work. The intensity of thiiis body lies in repetitive carving (an act of energetic transferance) and each time I grasp a complete piece from the final kiln firing, their energies give me a bit of a zip through the hand! This is my first time working with Runes in clay so overtly, and unfolding their mysteries slowly/organically has been a delight –These feel lovely in a variety of ways, I am excited to share them with you. 😊News ahead! Show alerts!I am excited to announce the O:EP show schedule for the year! It is a glorious encore from last year. You can first find my wares and I very soon at the Virginia Renaissance Festival for the first 3 weeks of the show, starting May 11-12, May 18-19, and May 25-26. Quick reminder that tickets may only be purchased online from now on! The next show is Pennsic, 2 weeks near Pittsburgh starting July 29-Aug 9! I have some really fun work up my sleeves this year for my sca folk! And last but not least, my heart and home at the Maryland Renaissance Festival for 9 weekends Aug 24- Oct 20! Aiming for a booth full of new, wild, next level work this year! 🥰About series and updates This year I am focusing on discovery and variety. If you are not familiar with my function, I am both a production potter and sculpture artist. I am a huge fan of the intensive aspects of both, though I have been feeling heavy on the former and would like to take a step back from large quantities of specific items and emphasize uniqueness, wildness–an untethered creativity. My business and I have always flourished with *variety* as a key endeavor, and I’m very intent on getting back to the grassroots of that. Now what does this mean?? If you see a piece you love, there will not be an army of ‘like’ pieces in my inventory. That is not to say that if something truly sticks during my creative bubble I won’t make a multitude, but until we get there– only a handful of ‘like’ pieces at a time. This extends to shop updates too! (I will have my epic drop as usual with alllllll the goodies end of November!). Until then, I will have mini drops online (announced via my stories/occasional posts) so look out for those if you can’t make it to shows. On this note too, I will be emptying my shop soon! If you need gifts (hello mother’s day) or treats for you before they go away, grab them soon! Alright, if you read this far I adore your guts haha. Thank you for reading!! Excited to get up to some passionate art making this year 🥰😜🖤

If you happen to be in SoMD this Saturday, you can find me at Fenwick Street Books (Leonardtown, MD) hanging out with lovely friends, delightful books, and a table spread of my latest wares! It would be great to catch up with you during this frosty midwinter time, especially as the town opens up with events to celebrate Moll Dyer day– Moll being our famous Witch from the 1600’s who lived very close by. It’s a day of remembrance, education, and coming together in unity for the sake of open-mindedness and care. I hope to see you there!! 🖤.As for any new releases coming up online — I do have plaaaaaans. I am in a developmental stage and hope to make this year a big sweeping theme for functional ware. You shall see (mwhahaha). 🌿 talk to you soon and be well my friends! 🌿
