Fast approaching- SUMMER.  A lot of a potter's work is cyclical. Winter items, Summer items, specialty pieces for the holidays. 

Every year or every so often I add something to my regular repitoire and with the same breath I remove something. Recently I added French Butter Keepers. Customers have been asking for them for some time. I decided they would be a good fit in and complement the other butter vessels that I make. If you know me or my family - we a are bigg butter-ers. Prefered brand is Kate's from Maine - sea salted.

The bigger cycle that drives all of this is the studio cycle.
