When people ask me why I named my shop October Forever, I am genuinely confused. To me, its so obvious, but then I remember that having a business is a chance to communicate to others through your work.
October is the beginning of Cozy Times. Here in the U.S. we begin to evoke the sweet symbols of togetherness, time with friends, time in nature, and of course the sharing of food and drink. All of these things are what I want to encourage, evoke and share with my customers. I want someone to come home from a hard day at work and feel calmer when they glance at their potted plant on the window sill while sipping tea from their favorite mug. I want my customers to generously bake and share pies with each other in and on ceramics that were made with love. I hope that some simple piece of ceramic jewelry someone throws on in the morning makes them feel a casual confidence and gets them a butt-ton of compliments.
So yeah, October. Its home time, me time, sharing time, and maybe even GD pumpkin spice latte time. Get that cozy, get it and keep it and spread it all over, all year long, forever.
