Etsy

I have just posted “stunt cups” on Etsy. Actually, I posted them a couple days ago, but gave everyone on my mailing list first dibs as a way to say thank you for being on my list. If you would like to receive these type of emails in the future, please sign up here…

Here is the link to see all the pots on Etsy…

These pots are a slight deviation from my prior work. I wrote one prior post about this idea here. A while back I noticed that some of the surface designs I had done looked similar to the cross sections of half pipes, tabletops, etc. I went forward with this idea (and with a lot of digital help from my wife), made vector files of the drawings of the athletes, then had decals digitally printed. Snowboarders, Skateboarders, Mountain Bikers, and the like are now throwing huge tricks on the sides of the pots.

I’ve always been involved with these types of sports, so it seemed like a worthwhile project. Part of me feels that I am misbehaving by doing this, that the pottery police are going to serve me a cease & desist, and that is partly why I like doing it.

Etsy is not the only venue I am going to be selling these through. I am working with the local board shop (snowboards, skateboards, clothing, accesories, etc) here in Helena, called Four O Six, and we are going to have some out for the upcoming fall artwalk. I wanted to release these independently first, then move outwards from there. Hope you like ’em.
