Feeling A Little Sheepish

I have to admit that I have been uninspired in the pottery studio these last few months. I have been doing just enough work to get orders completed and when they are done, so am I. Last Friday I decided to switch things up a bit and make some sheep. They are fun to make and are a nice break from the wheel. These little guys are also rattles. I will finish them with a combination of tenmoku and sprayed ash glaze. They aren't fast sellers, but I usually sell a few at the Celebration of Seagrove Potters show in November. November will be here in the blink of an eye.


  1. They are precious. Hope you feel more inspired as the fall weather comes's already slapped me silly this week!

  2. Such a wonderful idea for a rattle! Celebration will be here before we know it.

  3. Love you curly sheep, just researching to make a life size sheep and lamb for my sons garden that backs onto a grazing field (in UK). Curious, you mention they aren’t good sellers- have mused on this sticky topic for a while - what do you find sells well in your neck of the woods?

    1. Online I sell a lot of piggy banks and salt pigs. In our shop I sell a variety of pots with my carved ginkgo leaf design. At shows it's always a crap shoot!

Don't be shy, talk to me... I won't know your out there if you don't!
