I'm sitting here in a nice toasting house with the rain pounding on the roof. Thankfully all the rain is outside along with the wind and the cold. Will Winter ever end? Soon I hope. But I can definitely say that I like the rain more than I liked the 2 feet of snow!
The new heater in the workshop works just fine. It took a while to get all the bits to make it work but now I can wash the pottery in a more-or-less warm(ish) room. It's so cold that the heater can only get the room to about 65 degrees and I'm a 70 degree kind of guy. With hand in the water for several hours, those 5 degrees seem to add up.
We've put together a new marketing plan and we're launching in a slow roll sort of way. Our first sale is scheduled for April 22. That's the day that we've chosen to make pots available. There will be previews and opportunities to purchase those pots prior to the release day (The Pottery Drop)...it starts with being on the mailing list. You can sign up for that on our contact page.
