Things are going a little slow with the house right now so Rurality suggested I show some photos of what I actually do for a living at least part-time anyway. These are pictures of my little studio and gallery. All of the crafts are completely hand-made here in Alabama only. No, I don't have a website BUT I am actually having one worked on as we speak (type?). The building is in the old downtown area which they are trying to restore to an alternative shopping district. Lots of the business owners have fixed their stores up really nice. Mine was built somewhere around 1920 and was originally a feed store.
Another view of the other side. Its kinda small but the back half of the building is my studio and office.
A close up of the variety of what I carry. This is probably a horrible faux-pas on my part, but those soaps there are not Karen's! Sorry!! Its an old photo. I don't carry those anymore and just carry Natural Impulse; which is great stuff. I have several different books too which are written by Alabama authors. There are lots of really talented folks here! Some of my artists are nationally known.
This is one of my pie plates. I do all wheel thrown pottery. Its a mid-range stoneware. Microwave, dishwasher safe and of course, oven-proof. My sister caters alot and she uses my stuff so she tests alot of it for me. I'm not much on making pies but these work great for cooking biscuits too!
This is a little lidded jar about 3.5"x3.5" (to the top of the handle). These are great for sugar or salt or whatever. But you can cook in them too.
This is just another little jar. Its about 4.5" wide x 3.5" tall.
