The open house during fall fest went well – I think the weather scared a few people away in the morning so turnout was a little lower than it had been in previous years. My wife had an exhibition for her quilting business and I had some pottery out. I had to work my real job so I couldn’t attend the event, but I was there in spirit.
I haven’t set up for a show in the gallery before, so it took a little jostling around to figure out how to lay everything out. I think it all looked very nice. I sold a few pieces and got the names of some people who were interested in classes, so I consider it a success.
I had a friend visit and we threw on the wheels a bit and it was the first time I have had time to play with clay since little Remy was born. It was nice to get dirty again and exercise the fingers.
My wife and I also visited some potters today on the Northeast Iowa Artist’s Studio Tour. I think we visited 5 potters, with the intention of visiting 7 (it was our first day away from the baby – I think it went very well and we had a lot of fun in Decorah, Iowa). It was nice to meet some of the area’s potters, see their work and how they set up their studios. We took some very nice pieces home for our collection, as well as lots of ideas for the upcoming months!
By the way, there are only two spots left in the pottery classes, and only 10 days left to sign up! Email me for more information.
