Day 21 | Throwback #marchmeetthemaker I posted this pic almost a year ago to the day, before I opened my Etsy shop and when my Instagram account was still incognito from anyone who knew me. Wreathy (yes I call him wreathy) was my second attempt at a himmeli make and still sits proudly on my living room shelf. Since then I’ve made biggies & littlies and sent them to customers all over the world which is pretty bloody incredible. And my Instagram account is no longer incognito...hi pals 👋🏻! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #throwback #throwbackthursday #day21 #wreath #brass #geometric #shelfie #him#himmeliwreath #himmeli @joannehawker #heytheremaker #instachallenge #handmade #creativeeveryday #marchmeetthemaker2019 #makersofinstagram #shopsmall #supportsmall #contemporarycraft #creativebiz #mycreativebiz #makersofig #smallbusinessowner #etsy #etsyseller #interiordecor #shelfdecor #madeinyorkshire

#marchmeetthemaker#20#designprocess This #throwbackthursday post demonstrates my design process fairly well. I’m not one for too much pencil and paper sketching, but rather prefer to work out new ideas on the wheel and with my hands. Here are mugs from the last four years. As you can see, my glazes have developed to try and better highlight the changes of plane on these faceted mugs. I have refined the overall form of the mug and especially the handles. I now spend more time on the handles of this style of mug than I do on the initial throwing. I have added details to the feet and bottom handle attachment. This process is slow, but steady. I generally am not trying to change anything overnight, but rather always striving to make the next piece my best work at that moment. I am inspired by the natural world, our interpersonal experience, and food and drink. I strive to communicate this better and better with my work while maintaining a successful business that puts food on the table and helps pay our mortgage. It can be a balancing act at times, but I’ve found it to be rewarding. Thank you for your continued support! • #clay #ceramic #ceramics #pottery #finecraft #contemporarycraft #mak#makemakemake #shopsmall #stoneware #wi #mke #milwaukee #wisconsin #handcrafted #handmade #americancraft #howimake #howicreate #makersmovement #makemakemake #locallovemke #clayart #handmadeceramics #tht #wip #gratitude #growthmindset

This olive beauty is headed off to @moonstonepreschool’s annual auction. I never even considered the possibility that my art could be impactful in that way, and it’s opened my eyes to so many more possibilities. Thank you for planting the seed, @atargoff ❤️
