Sum-sum-summertime …

Hello all! I hope this little note is finding everyone well!

I have a tidge of an announcement to make. Some of you know that I am also a photographer. After some long deliberations with myself (it was an interesting thing to see, trust me!) I have decided to include photography under the same umbrella as Kindred Owl Studio. Making this move really resonates positively with me, as these are my most favorite art mediums. You will see that integration coming very soon. If in the meantime you have questions about any of the services I provide, do not hesitate to send me a note!

My first show of the year, with the Orlando Pottery Festival was quite a success! Just want to say thanks for stopping by and and supporting my little artventure! I really enjoy meeting and chatting with you all.

The first quarter of my master’s degree comes to a close this Friday! I’m so excited to be back in school and learning again. The program I *really* wanted to study did become available, so my masters degree will be in Arts & Culture Management, with a concentration in Community Outreach. I am cannot wait to see where this next chapter takes me in the near future.

Wishing everyone a beautiful and safe summer!

I leave you with a few images of the goings on the past few months.

Spring is in the Air

I hope this note finds everyone well! Not too much going on other than prepping for the Orlando Pottery Festival Spring Market. My studio time has been a tad limited as I’ve returned to school to work on my master’s degree. I will still be taking custom orders, however turnaround time is about 6 to 8 weeks.

If you’ve got some free time this weekend, come out and see a lot of potters sharing their passion for clay and all things pottery. It’s family friendly and free admission! The show is indoors and air conditioned with plenty of parking adjacent to the building.

Orlando Pottery Festival – Spring Market
This festival is taking place this coming Saturday, May 11th from 9am until 5pm. I am one of 39 artists participating in this event. Please come out and see us!

I do hope you will come by and say hello!

Twists & Turns

Life is funny. It’s unexpected.

Life is a narrow path that takes you on an adventure you are plotting, point by point.

Life is a enormously wide walkway, with hills and curves that distract you from those points you so carefully planned for, and expected to come to fruition.

My life took some of those drastically different sidesteps this past month. Each day that passes is an opportunity for learning; for healing.

But healing comes slowly some days, and it is in those days that I continue to plot my course. In time, my path will continue forward.

I am incredibly thankful for the friends & family who have rallied around me while I navigate the torrid waters. Without you, I would not be afloat. For that, I am forever grateful and love each one of you. ❤

Studio operations should begin by the end of February. I thank you all for your patience and understanding while these challenges are worked through.

blessings ~ Melanie
