Sedona, Grand Canyon and Ceramic Artists

(Originally posted on Feb 2, 2008)

I was in Arizona in mid-January for a conference and had a few days on my own over the weekend of the 19th. I went to Sedona, as I always do when I have the chance, and also up to the Grand Canyon. Click the image below to see the photo album:

So I got a kick when I was recently contacted by a ceramic artist based in Sedona who wanted some of our stamps. Her business is called Red Hot Pottery and you can click here to visit her store on Etsy. She also has a blog here on blogspot.

Shortly after that, I sold a set to another ceramic artist: She is based in Canada and is new to Etsy, although not new to pottery.

Although we focus on the fact that our stamps can be used for velvet, we have also tried to emphasize that they can be used on other materials as well - clay being one of them. We keep meaning to join the local pottery studio this season so that we can actually play with the stamps and clay ourselves, so that we can post examples, and possibly also have some pieces to sell. We are far from proficient with clay... and have not done anything with clay for years. I was very excited to have ceramic artists purchase stamps and communicated a bit with them. I can't wait to see what they create, as their work is lovely.

And now I really should get back to work!
