Our 4th of July guest has returned home so our photo set up is back out on the dining room table. It would be so great to someday have a spare room to keep it set up permanently... but we are resourceful and make do with what we've got.
One of the big piggy banks is done. The other lost an ear in the bisque kiln but luckily I had back up and number two will go in the next firing. That seems to be the way it goes with special orders.
Salt Pig, Sugar Pig, or whatever you want to store in it Pig. The nice thing is, there is a cork to keep everything inside clean and dry. I am not a fan of leaving food related stuff out without a lid on it, even when I lived up north where it isn't as humid or buggy. Check these guys out in my Etsy shop.
I will be adding new work from this firing to my Etsy shop over the next couple of weeks. Speaking of Etsy, someone on FB posted a link to an article online that said Etsy is dying. I read the article and then noticed that it was written in 2010... if it's dying, it sure is taking it's sweet time. I have no complaints. Etsy has been a good venue for Jeff and me. We aren't getting rich off of it, but it's been paying some bills each month. It's a hell of a lot easier than packing up and doing a show.
