New work added

On 18, Mar 2017 | In Uncategorized | By Nancy Gorman

Thanks to some lovely photography by friend Jean Burnett, I have added some new work to my extended gallery page. I’ve also added a new show to the 2017 schedule, the Prairie Arts Festival in Schaumburg on Memorial Day weekend. Now back to the studio to keep building the inventory for the busy season ahead!

New bowls

I made these bowls as brie bakers, but now I’m thinking of calling them Brie baker-chili-onion soup-ramen-pot pie-soup bowls!  What do you think…too long?!?

Website Frustration

On 22, Mar 2016 | In Uncategorized | By Nancy Gorman

Pottery, I love. Technology not so much. I have just spent over an hour trying to update my website so that my extended gallery shows some of my latest work and was only able to get one to picture to load. Aaaargh! Any hints to working with WordPress and Juicebox would be appreciated!

Getting Ready for March Show

On 10, Feb 2015 | In Uncategorized | By Nancy Gorman

This is the postcard shot for my March show at ClaySpace. The basket is about 10″ across, handbuilt over a plaster hump mold and dried VERY carefully so that it didn’t collapse!

Did you Call Me?

On 22, Oct 2014 | In Uncategorized | By Nancy Gorman

Someone called me yesterday about ordering a mug to replace the one her husband dropped and broke, but somehow (husband?) the message was erased from my answering machine. I’m hoping the person who called checks my website and calls back because I am currently well stocked with mugs but after the Grove sale in 2 weeks I may run low!

Got a Ribbon!

Yipee! I won a ribbon at the David Adler Festival of the Arts in Libertyville last weekend. Sales were great as well, so thank you to all who made positive comments and who helped me earn enough to buy lots more clay!  And special thanks to my son-in-law Tom Prince for helping me load and unload my many bins. That show off can carry 2 bins at once!  Ahhh, to be young again….

Pots at Work and Play Added

On 15, Jul 2014 | In Uncategorized | By Nancy Gorman

I just added a new page called “Pots at Work and Play”.  I will be posting pictures sent to me by my customers so we can see how my “babies” are doing in their adopted homes!  Julie bought a rectangular tray last Sunday at the Elmhurst Garden Walk and used it that very night. I’m hoping more people will share their pictures. I’ll be posting some as well, including the occasional recipe that I’ve used. But not tonight…I’ve been potting all day and am too tired to cook!

Working on the website

On 17, May 2014 | In Uncategorized | By Nancy Gorman

If I thought making pots was hard work, it’s nothing compared to getting a website up and running! With practice, I’m sure I will eventually get taking and scaling photos down pat.

Hello world!

On 16, May 2014 | No Comments | In Uncategorized | By Nancy Gorman

Welcome to my new website!  I will be posting new work, where you can find those pieces you can’t live without and stories about how my life in pottery is moving along.  For now, I will not be selling work through the website because I think one needs to feel a pot to really know it, but feel free to contact me so we could arrange for you to meet the pot in real life!  Once I get more comfortable managing a website, I may change my mind. Meanwhile, I hope people can enjoy looking at my pots!
