Whirling through January and February 2021


It is wild that we are almost through the second month of 2021. The Covid-19 pandemic still is the reason why we keep our shop closed. We are waiting until we feel comfortable opening again -- when the public health scientists feel that it is as good as it will get, and everyone has had an opportunity to get the vaccine. 

Last year we took our sales online and were very pleased with the technology available to be able to keep selling the pottery we make. We focused posting our works on our social media pages, Bulldog Pottery Instagram and Bulldog Pottery Facebook. We want to write more and restart our blog. So we will see. We know a lot of people are not on social media, and also like to take a social-media-break every so often. The world changes, pottery business changes, and we must adapt too.

We miss seeing people, and the daily conversations in our Bulldog Pottery shop. Hopefully, sometime soon, in the near future, we will be opening up our doors again. 

Last year, in 2020, we focused our creative attention to making forms glazed with our crystalline surfaces. For 2021 we are changing our pottery studio process and will concentrate on making pottery with our Moka glaze and Bruce's shino glazed porcelain all fired in our gas kiln. We have an AKAR Gallery show scheduled for this coming October and we will be creating a body of work for this online Artist exhibit.

Stay tuned for more posts!
