Our displays and ourselves

Last week was a great start off for the Tailgate Season.

You may get tired of hearing about it.  But for us 5 potters who don't have a "venue" for sales, this is it.  We each have a small display on our tables under the Mud Buddy red canopy.

We have added benefits of lots of good food available right across the grassy aisle.  And then there are all our old friends - the vendors from last year's markets.  And now new friends from vendors of great new stuff.  Oh yes, then there is the community of our customers...the people who keep us in business, such as it is.

Next week I'll be sure to get a pic of Cathy's work.  Somehow I missed getting her to pose with it, or the camera did anyway.

I was glad to catch photos of some of the things that sold, so they are archived in this way. We all met as students in the clay studio of the Black Mountain Center for the Arts.   Now several have become Independent Student, and also work in their own homes, and one has her own home studio and has taught ceramics. The Mud Buddies are glad to greet people at the weekly Tailgate Market.  Look for our little red tent at the end of the row near the paved walkway.

Quote for today:

It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know of wonder and humility.
Rachel Carson

  2. All of the work looks like great work. It is fun to see each person's pottery and their individual creations.

  3. have a good one, I see you have a sign to accept visa, mc, who do you use?

    1. Three of us have a "Square" that plugs into our phones. Mine died last year, and I asked for a new one which is now in the mail. Sorry I didn't mail your cup to you today. Soon, I promise!


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
