I started going to classes at Stone Leaf Pottery in 2004. I know this because Dex was about two years old when I was ready to get out and find some creative time for me. Since then, Dex has become Stone Leaf’s official kid mascot and I can’t find the time to make any pottery. I have been lucky enough, however, to help Stone Leaf Pottery with their web site, marketing and social media – but most importantly, all the folks there are friends.
When Ingrid and Sophia, the mother and daughter team who co-own the place, asked me to accompany them to a tattoo parlor, I must admit my eyebrow raised. I have nothing against tattoos, I like them, I think they are pretty, I have never found anything I like enough to have one put on me personally. But it just wasn’t something I expected a client to ask me about. However, this duo had an amazing year on top of a series of amazing years, so they decided to have it commemorated with a tattoo.
That is rad!
Even more cool? I got to help refine the drawing of Ingrid’s leaf (you know, as in Stone LEAF) for them to use as their tattoo art. Even cooler? Several long-standing employees decided to have the same tattoo of Stone Leaf’s “leaf” that night as well.
I came along and photographed.
Congrats to Stone Leaf Pottery for all your continued success, and thank you for having me along for the ride!
