Ceramics Showcase!

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.

Unloaded the small kiln

and my two small drawings that were in there cracked. Now I’m really worried about the other drawings I have. The big kiln errored out again (Big surprise. No, really. :p That Kiln needs to be looked at.) but I think it got to temperature. I mrsn, it fired long enough and its at 1054 F right now.

So today we strat setting up. I need to turn over some boxes to the packing/selling area, I need to pain some shelves and I need to start with the setting up of the booth.

Nergh. I’m so jealous of Becky, my booth mate right now. She only has 5 pieces but then she’s pretty much done with everything. *sighs* Lucky woman.

I suppose I’ll find out about my pieces early tomorrow morning…

3 days till the booth is raised.

That leaves one day after for post booth raising shinanagains, but still the end is nigh. I’m so nervous. So its time for me to go do the last load of glazing. Given the problems of the last firing I’m pretty damn nervious.

Other than that I’m feeling pretty grumpy. Community politics is rearing its ugly head, and I hate politics. bleh. I’m no goood with confrontation, I either push too hard or am too soft, getting bettween and hitting Goldilocks is just… I don’t know if I’ve ever done that. Meh. There are a lot of things I like about community spaces. This isn’t one of them.
