Platters in Progress… Calling holiday spirit!

I love this vintage lace I found in Aix en Provence.  Here is a look at the stages my platters go thru.  As you can see, each one is unique and different.  Please keep Tovari in mind when buying your holiday gifts, or treat  yourself!  XoXo Tracy These platters will be bisque fired, painted, fired again, clear coated, and  fired for the final 3rd time.  Tovari Designs...Everything Good and Beautiful...

Announcing Tovari for St.Tropez Home

I am very excited to announce that my Tovari line is now being offered at St.Tropez Home.  Please look for  my Raku vessels and platters at St.Tropez Home located downtown Naples  at 1300 3rd Street South.  It has been a dream of mine to offer handmade quality products at a commercial level.  I have always felt that gallery pieces do not always have to be offered in an actual art gallery.  The beauty of having a one of kind piece of art can really change the feel of a home.  Items that are massed produced and molded , often made in China,  do not have to become part of our future commercial...

Oh Harry!!! My heart is still racing from last nights Harry Connick Jr. concert

Sorry, no pics for this concert as they were not allowed.  Kudos to Artis-Naples for getting Harry Connick to play at our small Naples Venue.  I know some of you can not get past the name change from Naples Philharmonic.  But, you can't argue that we are already seeing some great changes.  I LOVE  the ever so charming Harry... He did not disappoint as he brought his charm, wit, humor,sexy dance moves, and crazy sick instrument playing.  I would have liked to hear him play more standards, but I'll take whatever he gives us!  I just had to leave a few Tovari cards on his bus : )  Do you think...

Thank you Greater Naples Leadership

Setting up for my lecture/demo at the Von Liebig for Greater Naples Leadership.  I am very honored to get the opportunity to speak to GNL today on Raku firing and other forms of clay.  What is Greater Naples Leadership???? I did not know either.  Turns out, they are an amazing group of people eager to hear about the needs of their community.  Their mission statement is, " To provide proven leaders with a unique opportunity to learn firsthand about the issues and needs in Collier County and to encourage the use of their skills in bettering the community."  I am not kidding!!!  How amazing...

Michael Buble… Sorry for the bad pics!

Ok, I know the pics suck!  I was so moved by this concert that I am compelled to write about it.  It is not very often that a singer can touch practically every audience member and make them feel special.  Foremost, I feel that Buble's voice and performance is better than any recording I have ever heard of his songs.  The power and passion that pours out of every note Buble sings is sumptuous.  It's like butter... better than my love of a really good french macaroon, and satisfies any craving one might have for good ole fashioned romance... Buble's charm, gratitude and acknowledgement...
