Love Shack Hiding!

It's been a while, what with wood-firing and working to get ready for holiday sales, but we finally got a new Love Shack out for some lucky Athens resident. As you can see, it's surrounded by books - arts and crafts books, of course.

If you found the Love Shack and followed it here, please let us know! We're glad to find them homes!

Novemebr 15 Decal Workshops

So we are finally doing a workshop- YAY! I hope some folks show up! A friend of mine put it best with "hey, I'm interested in that pottery tattoo thing". You know, it is kind of like that... whatever, come make some tattoos with us!

As seen at

Tuition: $25 + Materials: $15 (includes mug) = $40
Participants will generate their own ceramic decals from computer images and text and use them to personalize a stoneware mug created at Good Dirt Studio.  Decals will be fired onto the pieces in plenty of time for great gift-giving.
Sunday, 2:00 – 4:00 PM (November 15) • Sealey-Morris

Tuition: $25 + Materials: $15 (includes sheet of finished decals) = $40
Learn to convert text and imagery into ceramic decals in this one-day intensive workshop.  Students will manipulate images on the computer, print them with a laser printer onto decal paper, and learn to apply the decals to glazed pottery.  Workshop participants may bring completed pots or tiles for decal experimentation (or some will be provided).  The decals are then fired onto the ceramic pieces to bond them permanently to the underlying glaze.  Students will leave the workshop with a full sheet of decals to apply to future pieces and the knowledge to incorporate this exciting decorative technique into their work. 
Sunday, 4:00 – 6:00 PM (November 15) • Sealey-Morris

At the first workshop you will receive a mug made by a Good Dirt potter. No experience necessary, just come get creative! The second workshop is designed for a person with some clay experience.
