My display in Marion


I sold the two large dragon/dinosaur sculptures, and a few medium size things, and a few small things. Made my expenses! But it was not a good sales day for me.


My display before the customers arrived. The last of my poppy painted bowls and plates will probably go into my kitchen. I love to use bright things for eating. Since my finger muscles keep me from painting that glaze detail any more, I'll not be making any more.

There are only a few people who come to this market in the afternoon to shop...most of the real connoisseurs of pottery want to get there early and get the best deals.

A Good Tired Day at the Market!

 Cathy Babula. She made amazing work, and sold over and over during the day! She went home tired and happy.

My table, with a few sales. I'm glad some of my sculptural pieces sold.

Off to the Appalachian Pottery Market

So I'm spending the day doing what many potters do, watching folks look at my pots, pick them up, look at the price, put them down. And sometimes they come to me and exchange some "green energy" for the pot, which I then wrap in tissue and a bag and thank them. Of course it means being nice, and smiling a lot.

There's just one problem with that. I broke the filling I had in my front tooth...so I have a gap. I'm snaggletooth! It looks really lame. I do have an appointment, the first available, in 2 weeks. In the meantime, I just try the toothless-smile. Right.

 These little goodies have been priced and wrapped somewhat into tubs.


Some of these didn't get into a tub...but most of them did.  And I'm hoping half of them don't come home with me either!

To market, to market, to buy a fat (pot!)

Yes, you can see me there (again) sharing a booth with Cathy Babula in the gym in front of the bleachers!  Hope to see some friends (and make some new ones!)
