New work. Oh, and yeah, Pottery sales start THIS WEEKEND!!!!

Hi all!

A bit behind getting the word out officially, but THIS WEEKEND is the first of three sales at my studio. Yikes!

Actually, I’m in decent shape for tomorrow, if I can get the studio straightened around in the next few hours. Should happen, no sweat. But those are usually famous last words, so pretend you didn’t hear me say it 😉

Anyway, pots are all priced and sorted for tomorrow morning’s rush assembly of my displays. You can see the glamor shots of new pots in my Gallery page (link above), but here is the down and dirty of pots getting shoved out the door:

Yes, those are mini mugs for my kids section, priced at $12-16 which kids can then get at half off. It almost feels like I'm giving them away at that price, but I'm always glad to get pottery in the hands of young people who can then grow up being familiar with handmade pots.

With three weekends worth of sales, better have the mugs ready! Here are a swath of adult sized mugs. Do you think that's enough?

Coffee drip/pour overs. I'm so glad potters have reclaimed this form and are getting it out to the public. Use #2 sized filters.

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.

    I’m so bummed that I couldn’t make it to your sale. I live out of town, but happened to be in town last year at sale time. You mentioned that there were two more coming. When are they?

    • It was good to see you last year! That was a surprise!

      My next two sales at the studio are the following two weekends, so the 6th & 7th, and the 13th & 14th. Will you be back in town? Don’t you live somewhere out in the midwest now?

      Hope all is well!

      Carter
