Somerset Art Weeks 2009 until 4th Oct

Following on from a very successful Private View on Friday Night.
in which we managed to drink our way through 56 bottles of wine,
24 cans of chilled Stella, 3 bottles of Champagne.
and a partridge in a pear tree.
The above pots are on Display at the Business Innovation Centre in Yeovil
just opposite Yeovil Town Football club.
I also have a display in the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen
Court House Gallery in Somerton.
Sales are going very well, as you know I like to keep tabs on the figures,
and on the first day we had 87 new visitors who had come from seeing our info in the
SAW Book.
which included a blind man who enjoyed feeling all of the pots in their different stages
and the difference between mine and Doug's work.
I have also built a ramp for wheelchair access which has proved very useful.
On the Sunday I lost count of the visitors, but it was well over the 100 mark.
Monday was a bit quieter which helped me get a glaze kiln loaded.
But Yesterday was a bumper day with visitors coming from far and wide
and buying lots of pots.
Luckily new pots to come from the kiln today to re stock the shelves.

Congratulations on the success of the show! And the ramp is a great addition. My husband broke his leg last year and you really notice the LACK of that kind of thing during a year long recovery!

Sounds like good times :)
I just have to say that I love, love, love your glazes. Maybe you will blog about your glazing secrets someday. (Hint-hint)
