Ahoy Athenians, pottery lovers, and stray internet cruisers!
This here to let you all know that this weekend and the following (Dec 3,4,10 &11) I will be hosting my annual pottery sales event. The times are from 10am to 4pm both Saturdays and Sundays, and will be held at my studio behind the house at 572 Nantahala Ave right here in Athens Jawjah (That’s Georgia to all you foreigners).
There will be plenty of fine pots by me the first weekend, and then me joined by stalwart local potters Geoff Pickett, Jeff Bishoff and Juana Gnecco the second. Among the pots will be several cups and mugs with this fabulous glaze slip combination I have been experimenting with. I think this will be a serious direction for me to pursue in the coming months.
Check out those crystals!!! And the ‘shadow’ of the drip marks from when the slip was applied! Kind of makes me feel better about not having a woodkiln to fire in these days.
So if you are in town either of those weekends please come on out. I have something like a buzzilion pots that need good homes with sensitive and caring art lovers. So if you think you might be such a person, I’d love to make your acquaintance. Most pots are priced under $20 (mugs typically $16-20, small bowls $12-20, etc.), and there is a clearance section of otherwise fine pots that have just lingered in my presence for too long. Those pots are priced around half off, if you can believe it. That sounds pretty darn inexpensive for the quality being served up (in my book at least….).
So come on out if you can, and support your local potter (apologies to BP), support the Arts in Athens, support handmade, and support locally crafted excellence.
Hope to see you there!
