(This is not my typical post. I just realized that folks were being led to the blog from links about the upcoming pottery sales)
Its that time of year again when I have my studio open house and Summer pottery sale. Any folks in shouting distance please come on over for a visit. The sale is in Athens GA, both Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
Once again I’ve totally overdone it. I think my new nickname should be “Overkill Gillies”. I am a chronic oversupplier of pots for just about any sale I have been involved in. I think I have around 600 pots that need good homes, and this does not include the numerous seconds and discounted clearance pots I would also like to sell. Here are some of the images I took this morning of what kinds of things will be on display:
This is only a smattering of what will be at the sale. And the prices are extremely reasonable. Most mugs are $16, Moderately sized bowls from $14 to $30, and a wide range of other items, all under $100. I have mortars and pestle, pitchers, vases, jars, batter bowls, plates, juice glasses, soy bottles, oil & vinegar decanters, salt & pepper shakers, and plenty more.
Here is the map for directions to my studio at 572 Nantahala Ave:
I like the displays arranged by glaze and color — nicely done. And the nickname is great… it abbreviates to the fluidly stylish “OKG”, so I’m using it from here on out!
Hold on pardner! I’m not that ahead of the game. Those shots were just of the pots I already dusted off. Just got done pricing them today, so I won’t get the displays set up until tomorrow afternoon or possibly early Saturday morning (depending on if it rains on Friday….). But I’m with you on coordinating the glaze/color of my displays (you get partial credit for inspiring me!). I have it all mapped out in my head. I think I can make it work.
Next post post sale: “Systematic for the people”.
wow, wish I lived a little closer…then there could be your studio sale and possible cheap beers…I have a friend in your neck of the woods and will pass this along to him. Hope you move a lot of pots…
First round’s on me if you ever make it down here!
