Tonight finds me super, duper exhausted. For the first time in many years I have taken my brand new soda fired pottery out to a small local art fair. By local, I mean four blocks away from my house which was great so could run home quickly for the things I forgot. I think I went home three times. The best part about today was seeing and hearing everyone's positive response to this new body of work. I think that has been more valuable than the sales. I was really crossing my fingers because I wasn't sure that very many people would be familiar with the look of soda fired pots or that they would appreciate the neutral, earthy peach and orange hues. I think most people around here are more familiar with the cobalt blue and rutile combos. Well, I was quite surprised at just how well received the work was. Not a lot of sales yet but there are two more days to go. Thanks everyone who came by the booth today!
So if you are near Chico, CA come on over and say hi and tell me what you think of my new work.
I'm going to go flop into bed now. Have a wonderful weekend and stay cool and hydrated out there.
