Craft fair creations are in full swing for the next few weeks. I realized I don't need to make a million things, just enough to fill the booth + some. It's also important to keep up a good quality of craft as to not just end up making "stuff". So while I am working away for this fair I am also preparing for my show this spring. Many of the things I am going to be selling are secretly prototypes for my show. It's the learning curve of trying new things out in ceramics, the first ones are practice. Every once in a while I'll luck out and the first run of making a new forms turns out great, but like most things……. practice, practice, practice.
I do have a paired down line of dishes I make to keep the price down, but I still think they are cute and edgy. Here are a few of the paired down group waiting for a trip to the kiln.
If you don't hear from me for a while, I'm just in the grind of things. I will post some details of the new pots as they come out of the kiln in a few weeks.
