To round out the year we had a nice surprise order for a very large set of desk clocks, to be given out to all the employees of a small company based nearby (but employing people around the country). The clients were a pleasure to deal with, and it turns out they found out about us because of the recent feature in Diablo Magazine. We hurried to get out such a large order before Christmas, all neatly packaged, ready to add to gift boxes with goodies from another small company, but still took the time to photograph them. Since they were gifts primarily for employees, we asked if they would like to have every clock different, and they were happy with the idea. This gave us the chance to create clocks of every single one of our ordinary patinas, plus iterate through virtually every reasonable version of the square-in-square patinas, and have them all available at once for photography.
The next step will be to make an online ordering system for these like the one we recently launched for round vases. But that may take a while, especially with continued construction on the studio, and preparation for a big year at ACC Baltimore in February.
