It would appear that an Oregon Duck wandered into our pottery studio and walked right across our new Oregon Spirit bowls.
But, I have a confession.
It is actually our pottery assistant, Whitney, and her skilled hands that create these fun webfoot prints.
There is a ridiculous number of logo products out there for Duck fans to purchase. In fact, when I dropped off our samples at the licensing office last month, it was hard to see Gail, the licensing assistant there, due to the stack of incoming products.
However, Gail was pretty excited to see our products arrive. I got the idea she thought it was pretty cool that our products are made right here in Eugene. After all, I drove the samples over myself – rather than just ordering them from some factory thousands of miles away.
A lot of people have encouraged us along this 10 month journey. It’s one thing creating a new product line. But it’s a whole different animal when you are trying to make products that need to pass inspection and get legally approved.
Whew! We are glad to have made it this far and can’t wait to see where these bowls and our other Oregon Spirit products will end up!
