Autumn has arrived! This is my favourite time of year. Time seems to slow. That’s usually because the bustle of summer fun has wound down. This year is a bit different. I think this year that feeling of slowing down comes from settling into a new way of life while we find our way safely through this pandemic. Still, the world keeps turning and nature continues moving forward through its ever changing cycles.
This is my favourite time of year. I can feel the crispness in the air. Everywhere I look I see animals preparing for a long winter or a long journey to warmer coasts. The colours and textures are changing in the landscapes around us. I can see the fields being turned giving way to rows of rich, dark soil. The farmers are bundling the hay into big, golden rolls. Trees are showing hints of reds, yellows and oranges. soon we’ll be walking through the rustle of fallen leaves. There’s an organic smell from the foliage under my every step. The sun disappears earlier. It’s the time of year to rest more. It’s a time of change.
We’ve had the stove on at the studio again. There’s something so comforting about a wood fire crackling and popping away in the background. It makes the studio that much more cozy and inviting. I’m looking forward to spending more and more time creating in that wonderful space. I’m finally getting the hang of updating the online shop and I’m looking forward to the next shop update! I’ve been creating so many new things from my imagination. The glazes will be inspired by those warm, rich autumn tones. If you want to be one of the first to hear about shop updates don’t forget to join our mailing list.
