The story of my tiny toadstools… Every piece that I make is inspired by nature and narrative. Since the Middle Ages, the image of the toadstool has captivated poets, mystics and artists — throughout fairy tales and folklore the toadstool is synonymous with magic and wonder. But perhaps more magical than any fairy tale, the red-and-white fly agaric actually exists in nature. I hope to capture a bit of the fly agaric’s enchanted essence with my tiny ceramic garden sculptures and add a bit of whimsy to any beloved plant.
Hi LeRoy! I wanted to send you a few pictures and videos as requested (sorry it took so long!) and also inquire about making me another custom stamp. First off, I have attached 2 video and 2 still pics of my 1/2″ brass stamp that I LOVE! I have told anyone who will listen to order from you! Next, I have attached a logo image for your review. I’d love to have a 1 1/2 inch stamp made with a circle around it, if possible. Also, if possible, I’d love to just have the SW Ceramics printed without the flowers in the image. Is something like this doable? Thank you so much, LeRoy! Hope you’re well and happily making! Best,Sara
LeRoy: This is Elizabeth Fish; I purchased two stamps for you for glass work and I finally got a chance to get back into the hotshop and use them. They are brilliant. I am so thrilled! I am fairly new to glass, so I learned a new. shape – a “scotch” glass and I stamped the bottom or side. I am so pleased with the outcome! My studio is pretty busy for August, but I will be back in September, trying more. I just wanted to let you know I love them and I am logging on to etsy to order a couple more. I’ve attached some photos of my recent efforts, but keep in mind I’m not that great at it yet. But, I will be! Thanks, Elizabeth PS – I hope to get artwork for new stamps up to you in next couple days. No hurry on these ones. I am planning ahead for christmas gifts!
Hi! So there are virtual auction adoptions every few months for mustangs! I can’t really offer mugs for each auction adoption because hundreds of people adopt in each online adoption and I don’t even have my own kiln yet, I use Melyns 🙈🤣. What I do plan on doing though is contacting the mustang heritage foundation which is the foundation that Runs the “TIP” (trainers incentive program). The program gets mustangs gentled and adopted out-and the trainers are then paid a certain amount for gentling the horses in the short allotted time period. It pretty much gives these trainers incentive to gentle as many mustangs as possible ! But the program needs funding and obviously as many donations as possible so I was thinking of doing like 10-15 percent of my mustang mug proceeds going to that, once I can get everything mechanically correct along with my glazed and the correct type of clay that looks rustic enough, which I think I have found! After this next batch of everything goes well, Melyn thinks I’ll be good to go for orders! You should really watch this documentary called wild horse wild ride. It about this even that’s held every year called the mustang makeover and the people’s journeys with their assigned mustangs! It kind of explains a lot, and is run by the heritage program! (I’m pretty sure)! My personal Instagram which shows most of my animal/ mustang stuff is @ali_greenberg87 and my pottery one is @lucias_terra. It’s hard to explain to the Instagram audience for my pottery one my project and the meaning of it but I’m getting there! Sorry for the essay! Watch the documentary! You will enjoy! Ali This is the little mustang who I have been helping gentle, she’s the love of my life, her name is Ellie
