🧗🏽‍♂️ Don’t mind me me, just enjoying this little game we call life

This little test tumbler made it through firings and is, fundamentally, exactly what I was aiming for. Collection launch (updated stock//ships immediately) is moved back to the beginning of September because of some major work disruption this month. Thanks to you all for following this journey. Not sure what to call this, but I know EXACTLY what goes in it. 🍷// 🥃 . . . #ceramicart  #functionalceramics  #pottery  #handmade  #makermovement  #ceramics  #pottery  #moderncraft  #contemporaryclay  #828isgreat  #craftsposure  #creativeprocess  #contemporaryceramics  #winetumbler  #whiskeygram

As I stood I had clouds above me, below me, and amongst me. I looked West, training my eyes on the four fingers-worth of sky between the setting Sun and the horizon. “An hour to go.” I thought to myself. “An hour to go until the Sun sets and gives way to an inky blackness that will render me unaware of all clouds except those above me. Those clouds perceptible in that inky blackness not by merit of their existence alone perceptible because they will shield my eyes from the light of other stars. Some of which, though situated in the ether of existence at distances I can’t measure in my mind, are not unlike the star that is four fingers away from hiding the clouds that has made this moment unique.” #thoughtoftheday  #clouds  #sun  #stars  #mountains  #appalachia  #blueridgeparkway  #northcarolina  #blueridgemoments  #828isgreat  #summerstorm  #nofilter  #dothething  #wanderdontwonder

I haven’t posted in a long, looooong time. There’s been a lot going on over here in Asheville, for the Rice squad. We’ve been lucky enough to be on the road quite a bit this year filming weddings, seeing new places and old friends and taking about 100,000 photos. We’re about to get lucky another time. We’ll be hitting the road again soon. 🧡 : : : #portraitmood  #828isgreat  #ashevillefolk  #pursuitofportaits  #portraitpage  #lookslikefilm  #justgoshoot  #777luckyfish  #quietthechaos  #featuredmeofh  #freepeople  #theportraitpr0ject  #pfunder10k  #folkportraits  #ashevillephotographer  #westasheville  #ashevillenc  #lifestyle  #documentaryphotographer  #environmentalportrait  #liveauthentic  #fuji  #portraitsmag  #postthepeople  #authenticlovemag  #xelfies  #ashevilleinstameet

Jean Carlos moved to Asheville from Miami with his wife, Cristina, in the winter of 2018. Through a simple invitation, they found themselves at one of our Meet & Greet events in February 2019. Since then, Jean Carlos has gotten plugged in with our Production Team, joined an eGroup, and has found a community for he and his family. We love building connections with the people in our city! . . Want to join us for our next Meet & Greet? Come hang out with us on Monday, August 26 at French Broad Park from 6-7:30PM! See you there! #ElevationAVL  #ElevationChurch  #SeeWhatGodCanDoThroughYou  #AVL  #Asheville  #828isGreat 

Tea for “two” birthday party minis! 🌺

It’s the eve of my birthday and tomorrow I will officially enter a new decade of life. When I think back on the past 10 years, it honestly all seems like a blur. My biggest concern at 20 was if I going to pass organic chemistry (the first time through I withdrew from the class and later passed in summer school). 7 years ago I flew out to North Carolina to start my dietetic internship at Lenoir-Rhyne and would immediately feel a connection to the mountains. That feeling would later spark my move to Asheville and allow me to live my dream in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. 5 years ago I started grad school (one of the best decisions of my life) and would end up meeting the love of my life just a few months later. I know “they” say that your twenties are crazy as you’re starting to discover who you are. My twenties definitely were. I’ve experienced loss, love, family illness, job changes, and a lot of moves. One thing I’ve learned is that nothing is permanent. Change is imminent and you can learn to either embrace it or run away from it. I’m definitely not perfect but I have been learning to embrace change especially in the past 3 years. Sometimes it’s easier said than done but hey that’s life I tell ya, I can’t deny it (now go listen to the Frank Sinatra classic “That’s Life”). I am genuinely curious what this next decade will bring and I am open to the infinite possibilities that await me 🦋 Oh and in case you were wondering my favorite grocery stores are Publix, Trader Joe’s, and Aldi 😜 (Thank you to my Aunt Chris for the awesome card!) #birthdayeve  #dirty30  #newdecadewhodis  #1989  #thatslife  #dietitian  #dietitiansofinstagram  #registereddietitian  #lifelessons  #lifelessonslearned  #letgo  #change  #runnersofinstagram  #crossfit  #asheville  #wnc  #828isgreat  #leoseason

How is it only Tuesday? I’m treating myself to the new @dunkin  Hershey’s Cookies N’ Cream donut because it’s been that kind of week so far! Hint this donut is amazing and I vote it stays for good. Like a Boston Creme but better. Also Heath coffee, which you can get iced? Yes please! So celebrate the final days of Summer, kids heading back to school or just a tough week with one. #ad  @pivotpr 

To my gardening friends out there - what's your take on saliva? I grew 2 varieties this year - clary sage and this one in the picture (lost the tag, anyone know what variety?)...the clary sage was a total bummer for me so it will not make the cut for next season, but the one pictured was a show stopper, although a strong smelly show stopper- but it's a keeper! . . @smokymountainphotographer  ❤💐❤ . #828isgreat  #appalachiangrown  #bigivy 

Repost @tuesday_night_funk_jam  / Words from our favorite funky house band guitarist Josh Blake: “Funk Jam house band tonight is DOPE with the OG Lee Allen joining us on drums and Jamar Woods on keys. Rumor has it Mr Skidoo himself will be on the scene to do some mic rocking with us as well. Come kick it with us tonight for what should be a fire session down at The Asheville Music Hall this evening! Peace ~” ・・・ #mftnfj  #asheville  #828isgreat 

When I think of you and the first time we met And I heard the sound of your sweet gentle voice My heart took me over and gave me no choice And right then I knew it makes me want more of you 🧡✨ Dress: @lulusweddings 

Needing a little Tuesday inspiration to kick you in the 👖’s!? This is our boy Ken...long story short, nothing holds him down! Always 😀ing, always friendly, and always Riding ✊️! These past few months Ken was not only dominating some serious health stuff but he just casually built one of the most bad @ss  19’ KTM 690’s on the 🌎! It’s all about attitude and thankfully our friend Ken has one we can all admire 👍 Keep pushing my man!

Did you know you can book out our space for meetings or private events? Not even related to paint! Tonight we had a fun group of ladies in to create and prepare for an upcoming event at @elevationasheville.  For more info about renting out our space just email us. We will be happy to chat about details! Asheville@arworkshop.com 

This girl did a big thing today, even though it’s hard to tell in this picture, she cut off almost 7 inches of hair and she instantly looks older and taller. I’m so grateful for @hairbyhaleyworley , she literally has the biggest sweetest soul!

Beautiful colors to celebrate a decade + of love and joy
