"I thought the earth remembered me, she took me back to tenderly." I've had this Mary Oliver quote on my about page for awhile because I love it for so many reasons: because I work with earth, because my work is based on my memories of time spent on this earth, and because it speaks to me of the cyclical nature of all things, including memories, how they resurface constantly in creative acts, influencing present and future decisions. And so, after many months of mulling it over, I've decided to change my business name of Of Memory Ceramics.
Of course, there is a lot involved in a brand name change: new domain, new logo, new stamp for the bottom of my pots, new email, and so on and I'm only one person with kids and my graphic designer is also one of best friends and she also has kids and full time job, so this will be a very slow roll out. But I'm still so excited and nervous in the best ways and ready for the change.
I'm so grateful and amazed by the support of everyone who follows me and buys my work and cheers me on, and I'm constantly inspired by all the other creatives out there, putting beautiful, vulnerable work out in the world on a daily basis. Cheers to you and cheers to us. Let's keep making tangible memories of beautiful world. Happy Earth Day!
