Craftsmanship and attention to detail

Our event on Saturday afternoon was a great success. Thanks to all our friends and followers who came out to see Mark throw pots. It was great fun. We will do it again soon. During the event, Mark demonstrated how he attaches the foot to his ceramic pieces. The accompanying video shows how he puts the finishing touches on a bowl by polishing the foot. Not only do his bowls look great on any table, they are gentle on the tabletop because of the smooth finish. This attention to detail is emblematic of the craftsmanship that you can see and feel on all his pieces.

Just outside your front door

Some of the best photo opportunities happen right outside your front door, especially when you live in a beautiful place like Key West. I have taken hundreds of pictures of this palm tree across the street from our house. The sunset colors a couple evenings ago were spectacular, and when I stepped outside our front door this photo opportunity was waiting for me. Did you know that we can have this photo printed on aluminum for you in any size from 12”x8” to 60”x40” according to your specifications? Visit us at the gallery or contact us today at 305-767-3769 or sarah@shadeandshutterkeywest.com.

We have thought about this a lot, and have come up with a few ideas.
