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.

I can remember the blogs you wrote when you were thinking of becoming a full time potter....not that long ago, you are such a success story. Congratulations. You are truly inspiring me to keep going!

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)

Man, I don't know what I'd do with that many visitors. Good for you, Paul.

Pottery is the New Yoga?

Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
