1000Markets.com Pottery Art Sculpture


I've listed abstract, simplified ceramic sculptures on my new shop with 1000Markets. Check it out! I also listed two other fun and funky pottery pieces - a 'flower bed' - it holds a little terra cotta pot that is perfect for a mini-cactus or a bedding plant. And I listed a frog plant stand - it, too, holds a little terra cotta pot. It is one of my 'Perfect NM (No Maintenance) Pottery Pets'. Froggy comes complete with a removable tag that promise good behavior!

I've also updated my website: www.jackiesart.com and my etsy shop: www.jackiesart.etsy.com. Cool, unusual and unique items that you won't find any where else. Happy shopping!

Time to Create Art? Fused Glass, Pottery, 1000 Markets, Etsy?

Two new grand babies - a boy on Feb. 3 and a girl on March 23 - have totally absorbed me the past several months. We've been blessed with healthy babies who are gaining weight and daughters who are recovering well from the child birth process...hooray!

I'm trying to get things updated on my website - I have about 100 art pieces, mostly fused glass and pottery, that need to be photographed and put up for sale. My hubby is helping me get on top of the situation. I'll be updating my etsy shop and starting a shop at 1000 Markets.com, too. I'm excited to try that venue for sales. Has anyone had good success with 1000Markets?

My art and pottery students have finished making the cutest clay rattles and whimsical houses. They are bisque firing at the moment - so next week we can underglaze, glaze and acrylic paint. It will be fun to see their work finished up. We missed several scheduled sessions because I was gone longer than originally anticipated to help with new babies.

After a June wedding, I plan to teach a few kids' classes in June and do some traveling during the rest of the summer. Aspen, Lake Sacakawea, Wichita and in November: Italy!!!

About Me

My photo
North Dakota, United States
Born and raised in Williston, North Dakota. Degrees in Occupational Therapy (never chose to work in the field) and Visual Arts. Married for 33 years to a super wonderful guy, three daughters - all three are talented, educated, contributing, beautiful members of our great big world. I am so proud of them...they are my best accomplishment to date! I love to make art and teach about it, too. An etsy friend recently shared this quote with me from St. Francis of Assisi: "He who works with his hands is a laborer, he who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman, he who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an artist." I think it is a wonderful statement!
