congrats to Lindsay!

Lindsay, one of the infamous poppigirls, just works for us for the money. Her heart, soul and god given talent is down with the mud people. By that I mean, she is a mad crazy ceramist. After graduating from Alfred, she has been keeping a studio at Red Dirt, a collective run by Margaret Boozer. If you get the chance, check out Lindsay's work this month at the Brand New Brentwood Art Center....

the two pieces here are ceramic, encaustic and thread.

I answered the phone on my day off...

Look for an upcoming write up in the Washington Post Express
this is NOT the cover of the issue poppi will be in....
I will let you all know as soon as I know when it is released.

Yesterday morning I answered the poppi phone, something I typically don't do on my day off.
Anyway, when the woman introduced herself as being from the Express, I kind of was put off because I had been getting sales calls from the advertising department asking if I wanted to buy an an in the issue that they were doing that was going to feature Old Town Alexandria. But as she talked, she wanted to know if I was going to be in at my studio at the Torpedo Factory, since she was asked to do a few shots because they were going to feature me in the Old Town, that's more like editorial...YAY!!
I have no idea what they're going to say...but a picture is worth a thousand words. I will post it here and on facebook when it comes out.
by the way...are you poppi shop's friend on facebook?
