The 2016 Holiday Ornament
The Holiday Ornament for 2016 is a delicate eight-pointed star. The star is hand cut and painted in one of three patterns: Red and White, Green and White and Green and Red. A white satin ribbon provides the finishing touch.
Since the dawn of civilization we have looked to the stars for guidance. The two interwoven pathways of this star show how different and diverse ways of being can come together to form something of great beauty. The delicacy of this ornament also reminds us that such beauty and peaceful coexistence requires care and tending to remain whole.
I wish everyone a peaceful and happy holiday season and the very best in the year to come.
At Long Last!
After several years of planning, hoping, designing and redesigning and more than a few sleepless nights, the new home for Lowell Hill Pottery is a reality! I am finally out of storage and in my new location
It isn’t finished just yet. I still need electricity, insulation, some drywall and a heating unit, but those are in the works. My new spray booth and air compressor are also on the way.
Still much to do, but it’s incredible how much progress has been made. Watch for more updates in the days ahead.
New Studio Construction!
At long last, construction has started on the new studio location for Lowell Hill Pottery! Ground was broken in late June and ground preparations were completed on July 5th.
I meet with the building contractor to schedule the build on Wednesday July 11th. Then we pour the slab. Two agonizing weeks will follow as the cement cures, then the walls and roof will follow. Then it’s moving day!
I don’t have a definitive timeline, but I hope to be in the new shop at some point in August. I will be focusing first on setting up a sales area and then the production studio.
I will post updates here on the site, in my blog and in my newsletter. Please watch for updates and come visit when the doors open!
A Note About Shipping
The calm exterior of this website masks an insane machine shop of software that makes it operate – hopefully as intended. Once in a while, though, a cog slips causing a chain reaction that can mean trouble.
Recently this site underwent a major update as sites like this must do from time to time. Unfortunately, the software programs that calculate the shipping estimates (that is what they are…) decided to go off the proverbial rails and crash the site. For that reason, they had to be deleted to restore order.
This has made ordering over the site problematic because I am still in the process of configuring the new shipping software – a process that may take a little while. I cannot shut off the shipping option, so for the time being, all orders will show a $12 shipping charge. As usual, this is not correct and I will update you on the shipping cost of your order before sending it to you.
You can also order via email on my Contact page or by phone.
I do not know when this will be resolved, but I will soon have some serious time to work on it.
