Did you know you can find me on Instagram? You can find me @littlewrenpottery
I’ve been on Instagram for a while now but I kind of felt like I wasn’t using it to it’s full potential so lately I’ve been upping my Insta game. In a way I’ve started using it to experiment more with my product photography learning what works and what doesn’t.
When you run an online business pricing is always a challenge. It’s a fine balance creating a pricing structure that’s realistic for the amount of work that goes into every piece.
It’s been a long time since I last put up prices and since then the costs of running the business have gone up. Everything from the cost of raw materials like clay and glazes to transaction fees on Etsy. After this busy Christmas period an increase in prices was kind of inevitable.
I’ve been neglecting the blog since October! Since then I’ve introduced new bird yarn bowls into my Etsy shop! These are intended to be a signature style because of course they look like little wrens with upright tails. They’re the smaller bowl shaped yarn bowl and can be ordered from any of the colours on the glaze chart.
Every one is made and decorated by hand so sometimes they have a slightly different personality! The pieces are hand thrown and then the tails and beaks attached once the pot is leather hard. They’re ideal for weights of yarn up to 50 grams of double knit weight. The curve for yarn on these runs the opposite way to the star bowls an if your working with a very fine yarn you could even run it through one of the eyes.
Yes it’s that time of year again! We’re zooming towards the end of 2018 and with that in mind it’s time for last ordering dates for before Christmas and into the New Year. The shop online will be continuing to take orders over the holidays but you may experience delays in service during this time.
Please keep in mind that these dates are just provisional, if orders increase to a point where I risk not fulfilling them in time they will close early. I’ll be regularly reviewing these dates as we get closer. If there are any problems with your order I’ll likely get in touch with you directly. Of course if you have any questions about ordering just get in touch!
