Ramble Five

The solitude of lockdown gave us the gift of time and an opportunity to rethink our business: how we source our materials, what we choose to make.  During these pandemic years, we learned how to make and pour molds for ceramics; we grew broomcorn in our garden; and we continued to explore wood as a resource. While we enjoyed the quiet and contemplation, we missed encounters with friends and other makers that craft fairs offer.   With the Thanksgiving holiday right around the corner, we focus our thoughts on gratitude. We are thankful for our health, our friends, the time to work on our craft, and the coming of a new year that may bring us all together again
