November 2019 Survey

As many of you know, I am working hard to turn my passion of pottery into a career as an artist. In order to do so, I am hoping that I might get your opinions to help inform how I move forward with my website and social media. Please find a survey included below.

Thanks in advance to all those who are kind enough to participate!

If you are addicted to answering questions, and have not yet completed our quiz ‘What raku pottery vase are you?’, you can do so here! Have a wonderful day!


    1. Thank you for completing the survey and my apologies for the delayed response. I am having issues with the spam filter here. I appreciate your kind comment and I hope you are having a beautiful weekend!

  1. Just following on from one of the questions, I drink tea by the bucketful and would love to see a colourful mug I could drink that from. Big as you like – at least a pint, 20 fl oz. That size would set it apart from my others.

  2. Sorry, I couldn’t do the survey as it’s asking for a Google account login. I can do iCloud or yahoo.
    The website looks fine and the raku vases are very interesting. all the best.

    1. Thanks for trying! I appreciate your kind comment and apologize for my delayed response. I am having issues with the spam filter here in wordpress. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  3. This is reminding me of the writing chemisty that provides :everything is related: and “unity” over integration. Integration is things coming together in a disagreeable way whereas relatedness and unity are agreeable circumstances. I see what you are doing as extra special and you deserve the words to provide the chemisty that is perfect at peace and celebration.

    1. First and foremost, thank you for such a kind and thoughtful comment. It is wonderful to read and very much appreciated. Unity is so much more powerful than integration, which is often forced by circumstance. My apologies for the delayed response. The spam filter in wordpress has been giving me troubles. I hope you are having a beautiful weekend!

    1. That is one of my favourite vases! It is now travelling to a new owner 😉 I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you so much Eugenia! I hope you have a great weekend! You should have some mail soon 😉

  4. Write a short primer about pottery and sell it cheap (or free) on Kindle Direct Publishing. You can use your blog posts to jumpstart the primer. Have it link back to your WordPress site to produce a “click funnel” to sell your work.

    1. That is a fantastic idea! Thank you so much for the suggestion. It is very much appreciated. I will certainly figure out when the right time to do that is! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

      1. I come at it from a different angle. I am primarily a writer and a teacher. But I was an active visual artist decades ago who dabbled in sculpture. Your blog leaves me wondering if I should explore it again. Thanks for the inspiration!

      2. It would be wonderful to see what you would create now given your background and experience! Let me know if you decide to get back into sculpture, as I would love to take a look. I hope you are having a great week.

  5. Your books sounds so intriguing. I will ask my library to get a copy so that more people can become aware of your work. Your stuff is beautiful and the mythology themes are fascinating. I saw a lot of ancient pottery while traveling in Greece. Very inspiring. I have become a follower. Will check back with your site soon. Maria Giannuzzi

    1. Thank you! I an getting it listed for purchase online but it is purchasable directly through me as well

    2. Thank you so much Maria! I am still working on getting it listed on some online book retailers, but for now it is available on my website here, should your library be interested in purchasing it!
      It is funny you should mention ancient Greece. Lately I have been looking at some old forms of Grecian and Roman vases and vessels and may play with some of those shapes. I find their pieces of pottery quite inspiring with an ancient and raw beauty.
      I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Forgot to mention, I have a brand new blog on, Chekhov’s Gardens. I’m still trying to figure out the site (it is not as easy to use as WordPress). I’m hoping that I will be able to travel to the Black Sea and Crimea in the next couple years to see Chekhov’s house and garden in Yalta.

    1. Oh how lovely! How do you like wix? I had used it before, and also found it more difficult to use as well. I will be sure to bookmark your site and drop by for a visit.
      I hope your travel plans work out. That would be a very beautiful and inspiring place to see!

  7. I really enjoy your branding. It links a mythic profession to the myths of old. Having started a creative production business as well, I have found that the more I get myself out there, like to trade shows, and then follow up with the contacts/customers, the more our aromatherapy candle business has grown,

    1. Thank you for your kind comment! That is great news that your aromatherapy/candle business is growing! Funnily enough I am currently prototyping some candle holders and oil burners 😉 I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Usually I never comment on blogs but your article is so convincing that I never stop myself from saying something about it. You’re doing a great job Man,Keep it up.
