If you attended NCECA in Pittsburgh back in March, you may have stopped by the amacobrent booth. And while there, you may have gotten a sneak peak at the NEW Potter’s Choice glazes Amaco has in production to bring to us. Lemme just tell you (wink, wink) we are beyond excited!! Continue reading →
With Mother’s Day on the horizon, many Denver/Boulder/Fort Collins potters plan a Spring Pottery Sale. This is a great time to get out to Colorado’s best cities, meet some new people, and support local artisans. As we hear about sales – from private studios to pottery guilds to street festivals, we like to update this post and let you know what’s going on. Let us know if you want your sale listed here.

Here’s looking at you March. Shamrocks, leprechauns, and NCECA… mischief abounds while clay is thrown around? I’m not sure about that, I might have a case of the cheesies.
At any rate, Kylle and I (Sophia) are busy getting prepped for NCECA. It was an all hands on deck situation cutting SlabMat for NCECA – Chris, Mom (Ingrid), Alyssa, Olga, Kylle, my Aunt Kim, Carol, Wendy, and Gita (yep, her!)
Hey Everybody!! Nice to see you here – we hope that 2018 has started out well for you, with productive days in the studio.
If you’ve shopped at Stone Leaf in January, you probably know that we felt like BMix was the WORLD’s MOST POPULAR CLAY EVER and it was basically impossible to keep it in stock in January. We have been thrilled and shocked at how fast it’s flown out of here… so for the FIRST TIME EVER we will be extending our BMix sale into February. Read more below.
This has certainly been an interesting nine years. Hi! This is Mark. It is amazing to me that I am writing this today. In August of 2008, I gave myself a birthday present and took a six-week introductory pottery class here at Stone Leaf Pottery. One thing lead to another, and I ended up working for Ingrid and Sophia full time. Now, more than 9 years later, I am resigning my full-time position to go to school full time. For several years, I have been working on my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Metropolitan University of Denver. I am currently in the 3rd year and I want to graduate before I turn 60. So, my wife and I are taking a big step (and cut in income) to facilitate my studies.
Although I will no longer be working full-time, I will continue to maintain a close relationship with Stone Leaf. Over the years, I have taken on responsibilities and acquired a history of knowledge that is difficult to transfer. So, you’ll see me around in the store on occasion, working as a consultant, training SLP staff or doing back-office work.
I have truly enjoyed my time at Stone Leaf. The customers and staff are the best part of working here! Many of our customers are so talented and you’ve each taught me much more than I can tell you. I hope to continue the friendships I’ve developed along the way. I’ve listed a couple of contact methods below, if you’d like to keep in touch. I don’t know exactly what my future holds after graduating, but I’ll likely post about it as it develops in the next year or so.
I am forever grateful to the Kings for the trust, friendship and opportunity they gave me when they first hired me on as their part-time delivery driver. The business has grown considerably since then, and the current staff is fully committed to continued growth. They are a great bunch to work with and I will miss seeing them every day.
My Instagram is a little underdeveloped right now but I’m there as @mfishgrab. You also can keep up with me through markfishgrab.com which will take you to the page where I post most of my work for school etc.
I wish you all peace, prosperity and happiness. I’ll see you around. Thanks.
It’s early November, and we’ve had only a dusting of snow… what’s up with that? I hope it doesn’t mean we’ll have days of snow dumping later this winter. But, in case that does happen, I want to remind all our lovely customers about Stone Leaf Pottery’s Snow Policy.
