Decisions, Decisions, Decisions…..

20141219_150401As the last weekend before Christmas begins, we begin to accept the fate that this is the last week before THE day and online shopping and the associated online shipping costs will be rising;  therefore,  make any decision and stick with it!  At Fat Robin Pottery, poor Mother Hubbard could not decide between red wine or white, or kale or oak leaf or mamool imprint to serve her nightly cheese and crackers.  Even a brain less hubbard squash can’t make up its mind!

Just a reminder that Fat Robin Pottery is available every day before THE day to help you make any gift giving decision–if I don’t have what you need perhaps I can help you brainstorm and send you off in a positive direction!  Please call, text, or email so I can unlock the Robin’s Nest (my garage), turn on the heat, find the appropriate Pandora music,  and light the scented candle for a positive and calming mood.

Finished your shopping yet still need to get out and enjoy the day?  stop by to say hello and I’ll put the tea kettle on and we can talk pottery techniques,  International foods, or chat about our children and pets.

Have a sane holiday countdown, and remember–you can only do what you can do.  Thank you for supporting all small businesses, artists, and crafts people.   Keep giving me ideas, feedback and input and I look forward to creating lots of fun stuff in 2015!

Fat Robin Pottery Open this Sunday

20141212_072458Due to the following reasons, the Robin’s Nest (heated garage) of Fat Robin Pottery will be open this Sunday from 12 to 4 at 26 Simmons St., Newport….

a.  Mamool (Lebanese filled cookies) will be made on Sunday morn and available for your enjoyment!

b.  It will be a sunny day and a great reason to get out and enjoy the day!

c.  My husband, Dana, will be sitting and correcting student work, therefore, the afternoon is mine to share with Fat Robin folk.

d.  for all you non football fans, there is a Patriots game and people who usually accompany you on errands may be preoccupied.

e.  there is still Fat Robin pottery inventory to share, along with complimentary ornaments to hand out to patrons!

Can’t make it–call or email to set up another time to come visit.   As usual,  cash, checks, visa, mc, discover, and pinot noir accepted!

Holiday Open House this Sunday, December 7

With a special appearance by Mother Hubbard!

Please excuse me for adding to your Social Media Holiday Blitz Overload as I invite all to the Fat Robin Pottery Open House on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  It’s a chance for new faces and new customers (as well as constant companions)  to see all of my pottery work, which includes a lot of techniques (slip trail, pit fire, sgrafitto)  that I did not bring to the fall fairs I took part in.  The Robin’s Nest (my heated garage here at 26 Simmons St., Newport) is well stocked with my garden leaf pieces, hubbard squash bowls,  mamool ware (Lebanese cookie imprints) mugs, bowls, and trays, and a wide variety of one of a kind pottery pieces.  Christmas ornaments are currently firing in the glaze kiln and will be cool enough to hang on Sunday.

P.S.  Can’t make it?  call or email to set up another time to stop by….I’m here every day–this is what I do!  Visa, MC, Discover (thanks to my Square reader), cash, checks, or a lovely pinot noir as forms of payment…..
