The Friday evening private view before my annual Open House weekend coincided with a spell of good weather this year and produced a very good turnout. There were 72 pots on show, my cumulative production for the year. On the night, 14 sold with 20 further sales over the weekend, and further specific commissions for particular pots. What is particularly gratifying, was that a number of sales were to existing clients who wished to add to their collection.
Working solitarily in a studio has its advantages, but having the chance to experience informed reaction to your work is always very valuable to an artist. Thanks as ever to my regular clients, supporters and friends, whose support is what makes it all worthwhile. And to those who weren't able to make it, I have cleared my studio shelves and am inspired to produce new and satisfying shapes in the coming months. If at any time you would like to see the new work, drop me an email and with a little notice, a visit can be arranged.
