Looks like Rick’s African violet garden is growing nicely… handmade flower pots with some young violets adapting to their new homes. Soon enough they’ll be filling out, flowering and ready to propagate some more cuttings! Thanks for sharing your pics!!!

Can’t wait to show-off these new pitchers as I’m finishing up my pricing & packing.
These were all in my soda-kiln a couple weeks ago… but of course I wait until the day before to clean & price them. Ha!!!

They’ll be coming to the SCHAUMBURG PRAIRIE ARTS FESTIVAL
on Saturday & Sunday from 10:00am-5:00pm… rain or shine! Hope to see you there!!!

Pricing & packing for this weekend’s PRAIRIE ARTS FESTIVAL in Schaumburg!
Sure, there’s a chance of rain… but pottery only shines better when it’s wet, right?!
And if the weather gets too bad, maybe it’s a good thing these soda-fired flower pots
have drainage holes???

headed to Schaumburg this weekend for the Schaumburg Prairie Arts Festival
