I make these leaf night lights. Have made them for years. They are one of my big sellers up in the mountains. Until this year. This has been a challenging year for sales anywhere but especially through the little local galleries that carry my work. And I have been focused on my Etsy shop mostly and let the night lights coast. I mean, if they weren't selling no reason to make more, right?
|This is what they look like finished|
That being said, this week I had 2 galleries call me and ask for more night lights. Really, 2 within 2 days of each other! I had a few finished ones in the studio but I need more. So I'm off to the mountains today with what I have and the promise of having more in a couple of weeks. I guess when it rains it pours.
|This is how they start out|
|I use maple and oak leaf cookie cutters|
|I don't use the cookie cutters for anything but clay work, I swear!|
I'll let you know how they turn out!
