This was a difficult decision to make. I have been working too many hours and don’t have the energy to make pottery. I am giving myself time to figure out what kind of artist I want to be in the future.

One of my older pieces. It was inspired by Alphonse Mucha’s wall paper/Stencil book. I loved the symmetry of the flowers and leaves. I think i might revisit tiles & wall art.

I have been going through changes. The Sunday market I usually sell out of won’t be doing art/craft for a indeterminate amount of time. I have been working other jobs to keep the bills paid. As much as I would like work on pottery, I just haven’t been able to.
My shared space studio had to move because the landlord wants to make it a liquor store. I have decided to go it alone. I have a small kiln at home but it just isn’t the same. I have been going there since 2003. I watched the owner get married and have kids. They are like family and it is a sad transition. Yesterday I finished pulling all of my bisqueware and glazes out. Today I have been setting up my space in the garage/shop. Also, I have a 12ft by 11ft room inside my house that I do all of my hand building out of.
I am hoping in the coming weeks things will change. I’m thinking of fixing my website and getting the store portion running again. I have been putting it off because I can’t concentrate long enough to work on it.
Thank you for hanging in there with me. 💛💛💛

***sold***
Grow your roots deep. Be connected to the earth. I see my roots as things that connect me to my family, friends and community. I feel connected to Chattanooga in a way that I have never felt anywhere else. Chattanooga is the rich soil that allowed me to thrive. We will weather this storm.

I have been told these videos are bring people peace, so I am going to be sharing some of my favorites. I inherited most of my doilies. My great grandmother crocheted and tatted. I love using her work to help create mine. I feel a deep connection to my roots when i use these old doilies. I have been using them in production for 8 years and they are all holding up well. I use stoneware clay and glazes, but that shouldn’t limit your creativity. 💖 I hope this sparks joy and fuels your creative spirit.

Watching an artist stamp their pottery while listening to Beethoven is the exact kind of relaxation I need right now. 😍

Need a moment to relax? Take a deep breath. We are all in this together. I’m still making pottery, just at a slower rate. Even before this virus came into our lives, I had been getting overloaded mentally. My creative side would not come out. I took a break and it really helped. Even when you love something, sometimes you need a break. I am trying to find the good in this bleak world. I am finding my inner light again.

I haven’t been as active on social media this year. I have been dealing with a lot of personal issues that just take time to get through. I have only had 3 glaze firing so far this year. I will still continue to produce pottery, just at a reduced rate. I am planning on doing a flash sale thru my stories on Monday with some sage imprints. I will also make a post to let everyone know when it is about to start.

Today I’m starting with h**p imprints. The rest of the pieces will be in my stories. Tomorrow will be sage imprints!! All items will be $5 shipping. I use PayPal ([email protected]) or Venmo (thebonniepotter)

The h**p leaves turned out wonderfully! I couldn’t pick between outdoor or I door light, so you get both😆. These are all in preparation for a Pop-Up market at @farmtomed on Feb 29th. After that, I will open up this line for online sales. But have no fear of missing out. I am already making more!

02/14/2020

I love this vein structure! Glazing the h**p leaves I got from @farmtomed
After I apply the green glaze, I brush on clear glaze on the remaining unglazed parts. My green washes out when I dip it into clear, so I have to do that step by brush too. I have over 20 in the kiln right now along with some sage imprints. Hopefully all goes well and I can share the results over the weekend.

I made this video earlier this year and just had to share it again. It is such a lovely doily.

I have finished my last firing for the year today 😌 I’m looking forward to getting back in the studio and creating again soon.

Doily mugs fresh out of the kiln! I’m taking these pretty ladies with me to the Holiday Market at the Convention Center in Chattanooga.

At the beginning of this year, I made a stamp of the Walnut Street Bridge that crosses the Tennessee River in Chattanooga. It is a pedestrian only bridge. Locals and tourists enjoy this bridge on a daily basis.
The stamp I made works perfectly for plates, but as you can see, needs a little retooling on the mugs.
I just finished making the last batch of Bridge mugs for the year. They will be headed to the kiln in a few days and I will have them for the Holiday market.

Hi- do you still have these mugs with the Tristate stars available?
I absolutely love your work! You are a true artist! Everything is beautiful and so creative❤️
Just discovered your work from a video on Facebook. I absolutely love your work. 😍 I crochet (not doilies, that's a whole skill I don't have yet), this looks great on pottery. I'd be tickled pink if I ever saw your work in Milwaukee's empty bowls event. 💗
Saw you on "9".Wonderful work!
