Today’s #marchmeetthemaker is “favorite”!



One of my favorite things about pottery is how the glaze gathers and sometimes drips. I love layering glazes and watching how they change as they get thinner or thicker. The Marbled Mugs allow me to really lean into this because there is so much exposed clay to catch the glaze before it runs off the piece.

What is behind these woven pieces? Planning! I draw out patterns so I can more easily mimic them on the clay. Despite weaving baskets since I was five, these pieces have forced me to think very differently about patterns I’ve been familiar with for practically my whole life!



These pieces will be apart of an update in late March or early April!

From the ashes! I glazed this piece in total frustration because of my recent failures. I never tested this combination and I was fine with it failing because that’s all I could imagine. But wow did she bring life back to me!



She is apart of a small collection I am putting together. More information coming soon!

Update! Why is the website still down? Where are all the cool things I usually show you? Why do I have dark circles? Find out 🤣



And just to clarify: the clay I have been using is amazing, it just means alot of learning and testing that I’ve already done with a different clay. So I’ve chosen to go back to what I know for my sanity, not because I found any functional issues with the new clay.

Part of the process I rarely show is the sanding. I honestly hate this part but it makes the finished product much nicer and @diamondcoretools has made it so easy! I



I sand the ring dishes after the have been bisqued to smooth the outside and get rid of any sharp edges on the tops.

How to make a spoon rest!



Spoon rests are a new favorite of mine and I wanted to share my way of making them! I think they are a great product and are fun to make and easy to teach.

There are 6-7 sizes of gnomes coming in Gnomevember. First there are small, medium, and large; and then in each one of those, there are two hat sizes, short and tall. The seventh size are larger (I haven’t finished any yet).



What do you look for in a gnome? Size, color, shoes, eyes? Or all of the above?



I’m tentatively saying Gnomevember will release on Wednesday November 10th! In the future, I’m planning to always release on the 1st but I got a late start this year.

The Gnomes are coming! I’m hoping to get one more load (possibly two) of gnomes ready for the release. I’m looking at the second week of November.



If you were around for the last gnomes, you know I love writing little stories for each one! But this time around, I will be splitting them into biomes based on their hat color along with a few other surprise descriptors!

Gnomes are a love-hate relationship for me! I love making the as unique as possible and I love seeing them come out of the kiln. But, honestly, actually making them is extremely tedious. So, I’ve decided to restrict them to Gnomevember. I will make them in the month or two leading up to November and then sell them only durning that month! So stay tuned for a release date.

Why is Indiana Jones looking at my pottery? Because this is how I feel! Ever since I started Pragmatic Pottery, I’ve been pulled in too many different directions; there is so much to make!! I’ve been spending more time reflecting and planning on where I want to be at this time next year. Each week it changes. So right now I feel like I’m trying to narrow down my products to a manageable amount and maybe even split them by time of year! Who knows! Any other small businesses out there struggle with this?
