Ceramics Showcase!

February 5, 2012 at 6:19 pm (Sales and events) (, , , , )

Its comming and I have a booth. 🙂 This year Its going to be all mine, which is daunting in the face of having a full time job. I have plans for my booth though… Sandy plans.

I want to make my booth reminiscent of the Oregon coast. Sea oats, sand, sea tossed wood. The sand is making me a little worried. I mean, I’ll need trays for it, but I don’t know if I have the time to make the trays I’d need. Then there’s the part where I’ll need walls. Clearly I’ll be putting door frames together, but then what color to paint them?

This is going to be interesting. Fortunately, I already have a number of pieces to sell. I only hope I will have enough for the show. Actually, I’m kinda hoping I’ll be able to get into the group booth instead. *sighs* Less work.

The sale

was great! The ceramics were amazing, the food was yummy, and the music sweet. It wasn’t floor stomping busy, but I did pretty well and it was great hanging out with the gang from Radius. 🙂 Thanks to everyone who stopped by. FOr the rest of you, there’s always next year! Here’s a couple photos from before we opened:

Glazing

I spent yesterday glazing. It can be a bit of a pain in the butt if you’re in a rush, but I generally enjoy myself. It’s a very peaceful process.

You sit down for a while with your test-tiles, and you see what you like. You take your favored glaze combinations and set up to use them, plan how you want them to lay on your object, and just start dipping or painting or pouring… whatever it takes to get done. 🙂

Then you get to fire and have fun opening a kiln. There’s just something radically special about opening a kiln full of work and seeing how everything came out! It makes me all giggly.

In other news, if you’re in the Portland area and you need a talented potter and/or professional receptionist/ admin assistant, I’m looking for a job! Part time so I can keep working on this crazy art stuff. Not to mention I have found that I work better with some sort of structure in my life. It’s also nice to be able to help people, and get a job well done that isn’t necessarily drawing on my ceramic skills.
