So here's just a few of the pictures from my Pottery Wedding . . .
March 09, 2006
I'm busy preparing for all the shows I have lined up for the Spring season, with the first one just twenty days away. I've got lots of new designs in the works. I'm busy making and glazing pottery for my upcoming Craft Shows.
We fire the kiln a lot this time of year to build up our inventory for the busy Spring and Summer season and even to get a jump start for next Holiday Season.
I also have nice selection of new work for sale at The Poddery http://thepoddery.artroof.com in Mathews County right now.

Over the last few weeks I've been updating and adding to my website.
I've added photos of new pottery, new graphics, a new banner, new links, wholesale and consignment info for shops, info on custom orders and wedding registries, new calendar listings for the spring season with website links, a new online store and this blog. Please take a look, I've been working hard.
I recently set up shop on etsy.com instead of the old and not-so-great online shop service that I've had for about two years.
Etsy.com is really great, the style of most of the work on it is just fantastic. Esty.com is marketplace for hand-made items, plus some supplies and vintage items.
Etsy has been a new source of inspiration for me, it's the first online community I've actually really gotten into.
As an Intro to my work, here's a description of me in relation to my clay work:
Tasha McKelvey creates functional clay works. She currently resides in Richmond and shows her work in galleries across Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic region. Her recent work has been heavily influenced by textiles and she tries to incorporate the same detailing that one might find in quilted works in her pottery. She creates work using a potter’s wheel as well as slab formed pieces. She carves her “quilted” designs into linoleum and impresses those into the clay to create forms such as: platters, bowls, sushi sets, pouring vessels, storage boxes, cups and wall pieces.
