Hello Friends! A few things are happening in November and the first of which is EMPORYIUM. It's this weekend on Dock 5 at Union Market. Emporium is a "one-of-a-kind food marketplace featuring the tastiest treats from around the country. Discover delicious foods and purchase thoughtful gifts and top-quality products from a lineup of artisans you won’t find anywhere else." It'll be super fun and if you like food, and who doesn't like food, you should definitely come. I'll be selling a few DC and FLOWER mugs and a bunch of new CONTEMPLATES.

Friday Night Preview Party Presented by @DCFOODPORN: This ticket includes first access to The Emporiyum on Friday, November 9 starting at 6pm. Meet and learn from Justin Schuble, the man behind @DCFOODPORN, the DMV's most prolific food account. The Friday Night Preview Party includes access to ALL Emporiyum vendors before anyone else, free drinks, passed bites, and special interactive activities from vendors. Decorate cakes with Buttercream Bakeshop, mix drinks with Modern Bar Cart, and learn how to select and identify wines with Siptip (and more)! The Friday Night Preview Party is limited to 750 people. Shorter lines, less crowds, and more time for you and your friends to MEET, EAT, and SHOP.

VIP Tickets: This ticket includes first access to The Emporiyum on Saturday or Sunday starting at 10am. The special VIP hour from 10-11am includes passed bites, cocktail sips, and a gift bag filled with fun food treats. VIP is limited to 750 people in that exclusive hour, meaning shorter lines, less crowds, and more time for you and your friends to MEET, EAT, and SHOP.

General Admission: This ticket is available for 11AM, 12:30PM, and 1:30PM entry and will get you the full Emporiyum market experience.

Friday, November 9th - 6-8pm

Saturday, November 10th - 10am-4pm

Have you visited Resource Library yet? It's a beautiful and inspiring space right near Union Market, and my pottery is available along with a small curated selection of local artist's work. 'The pop-up offers access to over 500 design books, magazines, and periodicals that might otherwise be expensive to buy or hard to find.' You should go hang out and learn! My daughter has gone to several free ASL classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and there are a bunch of other creative happenings (click HERE for calendar).

The Resource Library is officially open until November 18th but it might be extended (fingers crossed).

'Resource is a design library, shop and event series. A temporary installation in the Union Market District, Resource serves as public space where design books and magazines can be accessed for free and diverse programming can ignite inclusive, cross-disciplinary conversations about the importance of design in our daily lives. Launched by Form Function Studio and sponsored by Gensler.'

SMDC just celebrated their 1st birthday! This store is an amazing venue for DC makers. I have a bunch of new work there - some flower mugs, cups, and serving bowls, a small run of porcelain twist cups, and my usual stuff. Please try to shop local during this gift giving season - it makes a difference on so many levels!

"Shop Made in DC is a space dedicated to showcasing the talents of DC-based designers, artists, and makers. This mission-driven retail initiative serves as a platform for creativity -- enabling ideas, products and people to converge and drive traffic to neighborhoods while creating low-entry to market opportunities for DC-based makers and small retailers."

New coffee and tea cups at Maketto! I get many inquiries about the work that I make for them, so I've been trying to make extras for each new batch. I will have some of these mugs and the Maketto teabowls available at my open studio and sale on December 16th (read below)
