Wedding Planning and Pottery - A Wonderful Combination....

When a bride and groom come into the Studio to order a custom, personalized tray as a Thank You for their parents for their wedding, they leave excited with all the possibilities our Studio can offer. Besides creating one of a kind handmade trays, we create custom pieces for Bridesmaids and Groomsmen. We also offer fabulous alternatives to a ring pillow. Our handmade ring dishes are created with custom text and a place to tie the rings onto the dish with a ribbon during the wedding ceremony. After the ceremony, the bride will have a treasured remembrance which she can use everyday to remind her of that special day.
In addition to creating one of a kind pieces, we also offer one of a kind experiences for the bridal party and friends and family who are in town for the event. We can schedule private events for bridal showers, or a grooms night out, or a session for the extended families to share a new experience and bond with a fun and wholesome activity for adults and children alike. If your group is more interested in a paint and glaze experience, we can create custom pieces for your guests to paint and glaze with personalized text and textural elements.
At Big Dog Pots Pottery we provide a range of services to help make that extraordinary day, exceptional. Contact us at (540) 364-2834 to discuss your ideas!

Down to Earth....

As we are closing in on the last few days of bringing the construction phase of our "little project" to a conclusion. I am beginning to think in earnest about all the details of what, where and why in setting up the Studio and Gallery.  We have made some last minute changes, and I am thinking that the changes will work well and allow for lots of interesting opportunities.

First up is the actual layout.  We decided that in order to better use space and keep the actual creation processes on tile surfaces (think muddy here), we will be adding some additional Gallery space.  This will serve several purposes, first to encourage visitors to feel welcome past the first two rooms and encourage them to go "behind the scenes" into areas of the Studio where work will be in progress. Second it will allow for additional area for sales of both work by our Studio Artists, as well as some of my favorite non-pottery art work which I have discovered along my journey into mud.

Having participated in many Fine Art Shows over the past 7 years, I had the joy of meeting and getting to know several artists who create phenomenal work, and yet like me they strive to keep their prices down to earth and affordable.

Yes, there will be a few items that will be in higher price ranges, but overall everything in the Gallery will be affordable art for everyday, or for that special day when something unique is needed. All of the pieces that I create will be available for custom order with choices of text, impression, clay base and glaze colors.

It is my hope that the Studio will be a welcoming and friendly place where people look forward to come and explore being creative, or come looking for unique creations.

In the meantime, we are setting up all the needed "number things" book keeping, scheduling, ordering, and ultimately, very soon  MOVING IN AND SETTING UP !!
