Report from Pottery Town

Thanks to so many of you for coming out that first sale weekend! It was a good showing, considering that I had never had my holiday events start that early. The Athens area truly supports its local artists!

Thanks, Brandon Phillips, for the slogan!

Thanks, Brandon Phillips, for the slogan!

I know that many of you local Athenians will have been out of town for the Thanksgiving Holiday, but if you missed the event last weekend you are still in luck: I will have another sale this weekend as well as the following weekend when I will be joined by my friends and fellow potters Geoff Pickett and Jeff Bishoff. The events will all be from 10am to 4pm both Saturdays and Sundays, and will be at my studio at 572 Nantahala ave in the Boulevard neighborhood in Athens. If the weather looks bad I will move the sale inside the studio where my wood stove will keep things dry and toasty warm.

Thanks again to those of you who made it out last weekend! I sincerely appreciate your support. And I’m truly humbled that my pots have such good homes with you. I can’t think of a finer reward for doing what I do….

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!



About Carter Gillies

I am an active potter and sometime pottery instructor who is fascinated by the philosophical side of making pots, teaching these skills, and issues of the artistic life in general. I seem to have a lot to say on this blog, but I don't insist that I'm right. I'm always trying to figure stuff out, and part of that involves admitting that I am almost always wrong in important ways. If you are up for it, please help me out by steering my thoughts in new and interesting directions. I always appreciate the challenge of learning what other people think.

    Haha, Savings account. That’s a good one.

    • That’s my euphemism for the spare change I collect in a jar in my bedroom. Some day its gonna come in handy. Settlement costs are not out of the question! Would you take a few pounds of quarters, nickels and dimes?
