Jeweled and Gem

 
What do you think of my new jewel toned glazes? They're pretty luscious aren't they? Or at least thats what comes to my mind when I look at them. Luscious, rich, delicious... food words. Maybe I'm just hungry every time I look at them. But seriously, who wouldn't be hungry looking at these pieces? They are clearly made for food. Clearly longing and waiting to serve slices of cheesecake, pour dark chocolate ganache, hold a handful of berries, plate your favorite cheeses.. endless options. Hungry yet?
All these pieces will be heading into my shop. Which brings me right to shop talk. Let's talk shop. There are some changes ahead, or rather already in the works. Here's the new plan:
New items will be listed twice monthly, only (at www.suiteonestudio.com). This will be less for you all to keep up with, and also a more organized way for me to work. As most of you already know I am a one-woman-everything. I make each piece by hand, make every glaze from scratch, fire all my own work twice, maintain and repair my studio equipment, pack and ship orders, all of it. The idea is this new plan will make certain days my "firing days," others my "making days," "shipping days," etc. The old plan was an "everything day" every single day. Basically, barely managed chaos. Well, no more.
Sales will happen twice a month as well. These sales will be for selected, designated, markdown items only. Storewide sales will happen on rare announced occasions. Sale announcements will happen through the newsletter: www.suiteonestudio.com (found on the bottom right of the homepage) and all my social media platforms. If we're not already friends, come find me!: TwitterFacebookInstagram, and Pinterest. And yes, my Instagram feed is all pottery, kitties and puppies. I can't help it, it's what I love.
My Etsy shop will remain in operation, but very limitedly. The selection of items will be greater here, at www.suiteonestudio.com and in many cases 10% cheaper here than on Etsy. I'm doing this to entice you to move over here with me. Yup, I'm being that transparent. Come shop and hangout with me here on my dot com. You'll love it. Promise. And if you don't, tell me. It is really helpful for me to understand the site experience you have as a visitor, blog reader, shopper. Help me make this site awesome.
I think that about covers everything. Lots of changes, but they're all exciting, forward bound jumps. The new plan will (hopefully) make things clearer and more organized (for you and for me) and it will offer consistency delivered oh-so-conveniently right to your inbox!
