Guinomi (Sake Cup) Sale

Category : General

Wood Fired Guinomi Wood Fired Guinomi Wood Fired Guinomi Wood Fired Guinomi

For those unfamiliar, a guinomi (which essentially means “one gulp cup” in Japanese) is a bit bigger than the sake cups you might be used to using at the sushi restaurant. They’re often collected as works of art.

Here in the US, they’re not as widely known, hence these have been in my Etsy store for some time. So, I’ve decided to have a little clearance sale in hopes that these might find a good home. All four of these were fired in a wood kiln, two were fired in a wood kiln in which salt was added.

Under Construction

Category : General

constructionMost of us have been there before… You attempt to make a small modification or fix a tiny problem, then you open a whole can of worms. This has proven to be the case this morning, and now my website is deserving of an old-school animated under construction gif.

But as is often the case, this will likely result in overall improvement. So while I would have preferred to spend the next few nights in the studio, instead I’ll be at the computer. (Either way, I have a good reason to put off doing the laundry for one more night.)

Highland Park Pottery Tour 2012

The 2012 Highland Park Pottery Tour is coming on December 8 and 9. You’ll be able to meet the potters in person and hopefully buy our work. There will be refreshments at each location. Weather permitting, it’s even possible to walk to all the stops, though on-street parking is usually not difficult in Highland Park.

Welcome

Category : General

Welcome to the new home for Guerrero Ceramics on the web. For several years I had been getting by with a free blog, but several factors influenced me to create this new website.

First, with the ubiquity of social media, it seems like an unnecessary chore to update a stand-alone blog (especially when you’re lucky if a handful of people regularly visit). So please, if you want to keep informed of my latest work, adventures, etc., connect with me by “liking” my Facebook page or follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Google+.

The other reason I’ve decided to upgrade to this new website is that I simply like the way it looks. And I hope that you do, too.
