Bowl Status

On the bowls:

Kate has not responded so, I'm making #50 available again (no problem, Kate, I can always make you another one in a similar form if you like, or you can grab it right now!).

So, as of right now I have the following pieces available:
#42 Hollowform filigree. $60, plus S&H
#50 Large shallow side, sculpted and filigree. $100, plus S&H

The original post is here, for those of you who have no idea what I'm going on about.

For those of you who have responded via PayPal email (Tom, where you at buddy?), your pieces will go out tomorrow, with the exception of Natalie. I'm finishing some additional work for her and all of her purchases will go out as a single package in order to reduce S&H costs.

And about that, Shipping and Handling. Yeah, $20 bucks is a bit high. But none of it goes in my pocket. That fee buys the shipping box and packaging and pays the USPS freight bill, which is the best option out of my neck of the woods. As I mentioned to some of you in email, cargo flights out of Anchorage can be a little rough, and the bowls, while not particularly fragile, have to be packed well, or you'll be getting a box of firewood. Fedex and UPS are the same, and twice as expensive, and I have to drive a long damned way to drop off packages to them - they won't come here to pick stuff up.

Anyway, there you go.

Now, off to the shop...


  1. Jim, it looks like I made the payment to you@gci.n not gci.net

    I'm going to make a simple effort to get it corrected, and if it doesn't, I'll cancel and pay again.

    Sorry for the hassle. It looks like it had to do with URL wrap, and everything after the n in net being cut off. Maybe that's why I had to set up an account, rather than just pay with a credit card like I thought you said in the post.

    I will get this straightened out, one way or another.

  2. Tom, no problem. I'm in no hurry, I just want to make sure you get what you want :)

    Did you get the PayPal invoice I sent? Unless I hosed it up, it should have given you the option to pay however you like with a single button click.

  3. Jim, it should be all set. It says completed, so I think you've already accepted the payment.

    Wasn't you. It was me, accessing my home e-mail from work with a simple text-based e-mail browser program.

    Thanks again!
