Busy November Wrapping Up


ChenowethARTS Mug - It takes a villageNovember has been a month for making changes around the studio and for exploring new sales opportunities.  ChenowethARTS exhibited with 22 other Tennessee Craft members at Nashville’s Gordon Community Center for the entire month.  Roughly 80 bowls were made and contributed to the Chili Bowl sale at Belmont University’s Art Department.  Most importantly, after several months of agonizing and preparing, there is a new ChenowethARTS shop on Etsy that will feature functional wares and gift ideas…there are still more artistic creations that are intended for gallery display, but barring a change of heart to do craft fairs, Etsy may be the route I pursue for functional pieces.

There is a new slab roller in the studio that can definitely put the hurt on a fingertip (that’s a whole different story).  A whole new world of surface treatments has opened up using my own silk-screened designs to add depth to my usual repertoire of glazing techniques…and I’m having fun with that!  Several new under-glaze colors are making their appearances on test pieces and I am discovering that airbrushing of under-glazes can be addictive  🙂

Gearing up for a hectic holiday season…my best to you and yours!
