We're Back! :)

Coffee has been keeping me alive in the studio!

As the winter chills thaw out from the studio, and it starts to feel like spring is here, I think it’s time to start contributing and writing once again. I spent the last year teaching in Malaysia, so the website unfortunately suffered and fell by the way side. I have been home now for almost 2 months and the gears are finally turning again. Slowly we’re back in the studio, work is being made, new glazes being tested, and my father and I are both eager, anxious and exciting to be creating again. With that renewed enthusiasm and time back at home, I’m hoping to also be sharing more about our process, what we’re up to, and also be reaching out more to people who enjoy our work.

Some of our goals in the near future include:

  • setting up an online shop (probably Etsy) to help customers have access to our work (we know its not easy to drive out to the middle of nowhere)

  • posting regularly on our methods, motivation and also struggles as craftsmen

  • participate in more local sales and shows in the GTA

  • develop new and exciting forms and styles to push ourselves artistically

I know my father is also eager to share more of his insights and reflections on close to 40 years as a potter, so that’s something to look forward to as well.

In the meantime, I’ve started our Instagram account, which seems to be the easiest way to share small snapshots and updates, so please follow @panaccipottery on IG.

Thank you for your time and continued support!!

Sincerely,

Peter
