October has been a working month for John and me. Not the set the alarm clock at 5:30, go in to the office and then return home at dusk kind of work, but instead, the delivery crew for Emily Grace Design, Emily’s wedding rental business. Three Saturdays this month we’ve delivered glasses, dishes, hand painted signs and other decor items to make a bride’s day special.
Last weekend’s wedding provided a bonus since it was located in the Morean Arts Center for Clay in St. Petersburg.
We toured the historic train station turned art center…
where workshops and classes with professional teaching artists are available at the center for pottery lovers of all ages and skill levels.
We especially enjoyed the pieces produced by children and displayed on the fence behind the station.
Art and plants occupied much of the outdoor space.
But a more formal gallery inside showcased the work of artists.
We didn’t get our hands dirty in mud or throw a pot on a wheel, instead we had a hand in creating the space designated for events into the wedding reception area for Shelby and Angel.
As a bonus, we discovered the Pinellas Trail running behind the fence decorated with the children’s work so we’ll be back again soon, but this time for a bike ride.
Thanks to my husband, John, for sharing his photos!
