Spring Fair Report

Saturday at Spring Fair began with bright sunshine.None of us recognized what it was at first but we liked it.Set up went smoothly but slowly with the new shelves.When you are used to laying things out one way it takes a little trial and error to get used to a new system. People started coming brfore the 11AM opening and kept coming until 5 when rain was forecast. We actually stayed dry until a brief drizzle at 4:40 followed by a downpour as we began packing up at 5.Sales were pretty good and I was selling more larger pots than usual. Woodfired pots went well also and may have made 25% of my sales. It is amazing that 60 potters can be in one venue and all the work is different.I only had a brief minute to visit friends before we started but it is always a treat to see what everyone has been making. Here are a few booth shots of the new shelves in action. Yes, I did remember to remove the tape from that lid before customers came.


  1. That last pot is wonderful and your display looks super, congrats on all the sales and the good weather.

  2. Looks great! Glad to hear the wood fired pots are selling!!

    I like the glaze effects on the lidded jar. Is that an oil spot glaze or just impersonating one?

  3. Temokou with Copper red over (thick). Reduction fired gas kiln

  4. I liked the way you set up your shelves so much that this weekend I set mine up in my office like that and I'm afraid I lost my show shelves now. I don't know if you go back and read comments after you leave one on other blogs, but I really liked what you said on my blog this morning, very true words!!
