2011 SMASH UP.

READY . . .

AIM . . .

F I R E !

it was our favorite time of the year . . . the pottery posse SMASH UP ! we love to start out the new year DESTROYING the pots that have been sitting around our studios all year . . . taking up space, collecting dust, NOT SELLING, or perhaps they have a slight imperfection (not enough to immediately toss, which there ARE many of those, but that you had high hopes for), and then there are those that are just. plain. ugly. well, their day had come and they got what they deserved. there is nothing more cathartic than hurling those bad boys into a cement wall. the sound of shattering china. the destruction of bad and stale energy. this can only make room for good spirits, healthy pots, and new work . . . plus it is loads of fun.

This looked like a lot of fun. I hope everyone either went out for breakfast and mimosas, or lunch and wine. xo
