The salt bowl sets were the last of the IOUs shipped out today - hammered away on them while we made the pans, and they're lovely! I never get tired of seeing them go through the heat treatment which gives them their rich color. When I'm done hammering and peening, they're polished until they look like a brand new penny. We gently heat them until they achieve this magenta color before applying the linseed/beeswax mix - then they drop back down to a really rich, deep copper color. I love seeing it happen - the picture doesn't do it justice, but you can see the transformation.
Point is, that's the last of it and we're finally ready to post an online store update!
Our next store update will be:
Sunday, February 22nd - 10:00am Pacific Standard Time
It will take up to two weeks to ship out the packages. We're increasing shipping times in general, because as we're packing up the pans, we'll be making more pans for the next store posting, which we will try to do every couple of weeks.
We're also setting aside a percentage of pans to sell locally. Inventory is spotty, so if there's a particular size/shape you're looking for, please contact us and we'll let you know if we have it in stock or when we'll have it available.
Thank you all for your patience, kindness and interest, we're incredibly grateful for it!
