reducing inventory

The good news is that I'm back in the community studio again.  So nice to see old friends and catch up with their lives.
I'm slowly building things with extruded pieces...minimal hand work.

My hands have another week to heal with exercises using special therapy clay (who knew?).  This is to strengthen the lateral muscles (can't remember abductors vs the other squeezes and one stretches) between my they won't continue to have the sidewise cramping.  Which of course isn't what the doctor diagnosed or treated...but this is the actual problem being addressed.  I do want to avoid those cramps.

I sent jars to the Tailgate market last week.

Maybe too many.
Certainly too costly for Tailgate customers.

So the good news is that some will be going back next week, and the prices will be cut in half.  If that doesn't sell them, bring out the hammer!

What did sell?  

My friend Pat has made more sponge holders than she can count, and sells them like crazy.  Congrats!  I think.  She may be really sorry at this point.


  1. It's nice to hear that your hands are recovering. It probably feels like forever, but at least you can do some work.
    Therapy clay?!
    Don't get too discouraged about your prices. What is a bust in one venue may sell like wild fire in another!

    1. Only for a few pieces that I really don't want hanging around...actually have quite a load to take and smash soon anyway!


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
