Thank You!

Hello, I just wanted to thank everyone who came out for Farm Day in the City! It was a beautiful day and it was great meeting each of you!

I would also like to announce and request something important!

If you bought from me, please check that your mugs are not leaking. Two of the mugs I sold on Sunday have been reported leaky and I will replace or refund any that might have been compromised.

Just email or call me!!

I am truly sorry. I am quite devastated by this and puzzled. This batch of pottery was made with new clay and new glazes. However, what might be the reason for the cracking, was my exposing them to an abrupt temperature change. Ceramics don’t like extreme temperature changes. I had packed the car the night before the market and it was quite cold.

All of my work is food and dishwasher safe and can handle hot and cold temperatures - just not from one extreme to the other. Gradual is the key.

I am in the process of checking my current inventory and all work in the future will be rigorously checked beforehand from now on.

Again, I am so sorry. And thank you always for your feedback on my work.

I aspire to make quality items that will last for years.

Warmly, Ryan

A Wave from the Sea

I've been somewhat busy making and shaping cups, bowls, saucers, mugs and a variety of goblets.

As I write this, my kiln is chugging along at 1700 degrees and in the next day or so I'll be dipping some glazes on these guys.

Now for our latest winner!! I love it when a longtime subscriber wins!! Congrats! I’ll have a new mug for ya shortly!

Stay cozy in the sun and chillin' in the shade ;) Ryan

Tip a Sip for Kenny

Last month I wrote a little about finding our new home in lovely Hunter River. Although plenty of our things remain as is, in their cardboard box homes, we are slowly settling in. I take a deep breath so as not to let the list of important tasks overwhelm me! We have big plans over here at 19795 Route 2… a basement studio among other highlights. These wait in queue. In the soonest meantime I'll have my wheel in the front porch (Pottery Porch) with a nice display or two. 

Ah, my poor kiln suffered an injury, a broken coil, which isn't so bad considering the bottom of the big beast fell on the driveway between our feet at the end of our move. Needless to say I'm not yet into mud or production just yet!

oh my! Well how about the draw? As always, if you want a chance to win you need only to sign up for my monthly updates.

One of my personal hero's passed away a few days ago. I knew him as my stepdad but he was a lot of things for a lot of people. Truly a kind person- showing up when he's needed, knows who your parents and their parents are, and so very giving. Kenny told stories and sang songs, tickled children and dogs. He was also a great friend to both my parents, even married one of them.

This past Christmas he bought a mug for my Mom, just so he could get his one back from her. He’s just that kind of a good guy. He always had a pot of coffee on. So before you watch the video, git a mug ready and have a sip in honour of Kenny Francis Murphy.

I continue to be pleasantly surprised when it comes to draw results! This month's winner, may be well known to many of you out in the world. She’s an artist and potter who makes beautiful and often both cute and funny creations. She has a booth at the Charlottetown Farmer's Market and is a regular at the Victoria Park Potter's Co-op!

Congrats to you dear friend and I'll contact you this week!

Stay Cozy, Ryan
