Summer Sale!

July 27, 2015 - Leave a Response

It’s almost August. It’s hot. Time to step into a cool, cool studio and shop! Guest artist,  Anne Mulvihill, will join us  at Rafter E Studio this Saturday. We are setting out work with greatly reduced pricing. Very low prices.  

As our bodies of work evolve, some pieces hang around the studio just a little too long. The ceramics on sale fits mostly  into the categories of discontinued glazes and forms. 

Good for you! An excellent time to stock up on gift items. Shop with no stress now and relax later during the holiday season. (You will save plenty of money to treat yourself.)

That Damp Box!

At Rafter E Studio, our damp boxes were made from plant starter cabinets. John replaced the thin, rather unattractive clear plastic with sheets of corrugated, translucent plastic that I happened know about.

Rather handsome damp boxes, yes?

His and Hers…

Nite, nite, little cups and vases. See you tomorrow…
