Two down and one to go!

Hi all!
Two sales events wrapped up and only one more weekend for me to flog my pots for the holidays. Still plenty of good ones left [Hint: if you need that last minute gift idea, or something special (and local!) for your own home!]

Thanks everyone who braved the weather this weekend! Yesterday was especially daunting, but to my amazement there were a number of you who made it out. You are all heroes in my book!

I was also grateful that so many parents brought their kids to find pots for themselves and as gifts for their family members and teachers. It is such a treat for me to watch young folks examine my pots and pick the ones that are just right for them. The more I can do to encourage an appreciation for art in the youth of today the better I feel about my contribution to the community. Making the world safe for art is something I am deeply passionate about. So thanks everyone for finding a place for art within your own homes and lives! Including art within your hearts and families is a precious statement of the things that matter in this world….. I’m humbled that so many things I’ve made have been able to find treasured space within your lives. Thank you!

Just a reminder: The sale continues next weekend, and will include local potting luminaries Geoff Pickett, Jeff Bishoff, and Julie Greene.

I am honored to have them join me. We will be selling pottery from 10am to 4pm both days. I hope folks can make it out to see what we’ve been up to. 

Support local handmade art! Support your local potters!

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.
