Last Tailgate market 2014

(Well, there's still the Holiday Market on Sat. Nov 22, 10-1...which will have many of the same vendors and be in the same place!)

Just so you don't slosh your drink while trying to admire your ladybug, there's an overhanging leaf that comes inside these mugs (and a few that go to the bottom as well!)

Thanks to John Britt for filming Terry's demo at Odyssey last month at the Clay Club meeting

Here is a short demo about making spouts (like you put on a tea pot!)

Cathy Babula

Sunshine on Cathy's bowls, which kind of washes out the gorgeous combination of glazes.

These are obviously not professional photos but candid shots during the Tailgate market.  Some of these pots sold last week, but there may still be a couple left, as well as new ones to see.  Cathy works in her own studio.

A whole passel of pots

Early morning set up at Tailgate on Saturday.  This is the last Tailgate Market for 2014.

We do have one more sale on Sat. Nov 22, a holiday it will have goodies for the Thanksgiving feasts, as well as gift buying opportunities!

Home showing

With the last Tailgate market this weekend, I'm readying my home for showing my pottery during winter months. Appointments can be made to come see my work and purchase it any day of the week.

Impressionistic glaze

Sometimes glazes surprise me (most of the time!)  This overlay of Raspberry on top of Floating Blue gave an impressionistic cast between the two, since they didn't bleed as they have in the past...but have little speckles happening.  I took these "mug-bowls" to the Tailgate Market last weekend and sold 2 of them.  Whoohoo!  Considering it was a beautiful day, we had very light turnout at the market.  We've only one more market, and I've got soooo many pots.

The last of the series

I may continue to make most things my friends request, but these are the last 2 toothbrush stands.  Period.  I just can't sell them for a compensation that meets the amount of time and work they take to make.

So of course these will go for peanuts!

A vase of a different shape

Four squooshed vases...which I think will take arrangements very nicely.  What do you think?
