Have fun with friends and family and create special gifts for the holidays or for a special occasion. Rincón Pottery is now offering one hour sessions for you to make your very own plates full of memories, or “MemoPlates” as we like to call them!

During these sessions, you will be supplied with everything you need to make these completely functional 5 inch square hand-built plates. Using stamps, shells, corals and colored underglazes you will be able to decorate them and create your own unique masterpieces. This experience is suitable for all ages (children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult).

Make a MemoPlate…
• As a unique gift for the grandparents this holiday season
• To mark the arrival of a new baby (e.g. baby hand prints)
• To commemorate a special occasion (e.g. birthday, anniversary or honeymoon)
• For use during a special event (e.g. a ring plate for your wedding)
• Just to have fun!

Book a session for yourself or bring a group of friends. The cost is $25 per plate, with a minimum of $50 (i.e. 2 plates) per 1 hour session. This includes all materials, glazes and firings. Shipping, if needed, is not included (around $10 per shipping address).
Clay takes time to dry and fire, so plates are usually ready 4 weeks after the date of the workshop.

Call or email us for more info, or to make a booking.

Our Etsy shop is now up. Whether it is for a birthday, holiday or wedding (or simply to treat yourself), beautiful and unique gifts from Rincón Pottery are only a click away!

Miri has listed a wide selection of her work, including mugs, rum cups, bowls, plates and necklaces and new items will continue to be added over the coming days and weeks.

Several items feature the famous Taino Indian Coqui (tree frog) image and others are textured using shells and pieces of coral found on the beaches of western Puerto Rico. Continuing the Puerto Rican (especially Rincón) theme there are also “shaka” (hang loose) stamped pieces for the surfer in your family.

We are very excited to be launching our new “Hands on Clay” workshops at Rincón Pottery. The workshops are designed to offer a fun ‘clay taster’ for those curious about what goes on ‘behind the scenes’ in a working pottery studio.

To celebrate the launch of our new ‘Hands on Clay’ workshops, we are having a raffle to give away two FREE workshops. The winner will receive a ‘Hands on Clay Complete Experience’ for two participants (worth $140). The runner-up will receive a ‘Hands on Clay Wheel Throwing Experience’ for two participants (worth $70).

All registered fans of Rincón Pottery on Facebook (old and new) are eligible, so please spread the word amongst your Rincón loving friends!

To enter, join our Facebook page (if you haven’t done so already) then post a comment (on our Facebook page) and include the words “AUGUST GIVEAWAY”. The winners will be randomly chosen on the 1st of September and will be announced our Facebook page.

The lucky winners should then arrange with us to take their workshop on a mutually convenient date. There is no expiry date on the prizes, so it doesn’t matter if you’re not planning to be in Rincón for a while.

¡Buena suerte!

Last night I took part in ‘Travelling Treasures’ for the first time. Christine G. Epstein and Maureen S. Schmidt, two local artists, recently started ‘Travelling Treasures’, a collection of fine arts and artisan handcrafts by over 15 local artists. True to their name, they travel with their collection to different hotels and guest houses in the area, bringing the art to their audiences.

Yesterday’s event was at Villa Cofresi, a local beach-front hotel with a happening bar (especially known for their Pirata drink). It was great fun and I sold a bunch of pieces (including those pictured below)! Check out more photos from the event on my facebook page.

The Secret Garden Art Gallery is having its opening event this weekend, Saturday, January 9th from 12-6pm. The gallery carries work by many local artists, including me! If you are in town, I hope you can join us!

I was pleased to be recently asked by Rhea Maxwell, the editor of “El Coqui” (the local free monthly publication) to contribute articles to the publication. My first assignment was great fun, as I got to chat to and write about Roberto and Nina Ortiz, who own and run the Secret Garden, a local art gallery. If you find the print a tad small, click on each page to enlarge. Unfortunately, the last two sentences of the article in English were cut off in print. You will find them at the end of this post. Alternatively, see if you can follow the Spanish! 🙂
