Thanks again to SLO Botanical Garden for invite to participate in 2020 "Art in the Garden" event!
For 2021, looking forward to:
* Participating in another show or two
* Donating work to fundraisers benefitting homeless, cycling advocacy, and other worthy causes
* Exploring teapots, pitchers, lidded forms, glaze combinations, sprigs, and stencilled patterns
Set more ware out at SLO Botanical Garden sale yesterday - a few more vases, medium mugs, small bowls, teapots, and a few large mugs.
Event continues Thursday through Sunday, ten a.m. to four p.m.
The venue is a large airy room, typically two or three people wander through at a time. I pinned open all the doors during my shifts, and opened a few windows as well.
Put out a few more things on my table yesterday, and added some vertical.
Thanks to Dianne Draze for the help, very appreciated!
Have decided to hold off on a sale out of my studio this year - am "all in" on SLO Botanical Garden sale*, Thursday - Sunday 10 to 4 through the end of December.
The participants share minding the gallery - my remaining turns are tomorrow 14-NOV-20 ten to one, again 28-NOV-20 and 5-DEC-20 ten to one, and ten to four 12-DEC-20.
I expect the selection to diminish as the days roll by, however, am working on a load of mugs, bowls, teapots, and vases now, which should hit the gallery in about two weeks.
* hold/request/commission items will be through the studio by appointment.
Added a few items
Art in the Garden event starts today, ten to four, Thursday through Sunday until last weekend in December.
Here's the initial layout; will bring in more ware tomorrow, then periodically from there.
Really excited about this event - a chance to get my ware "out there" and also support the Garden.
Hoping to participate in San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden's upcoming holiday sale!
A portion of each sale benefits the Botanical Garden (a non profit enterprise). Each artist is required to work in the gallery during sale - am looking forward to it.
I will be holding back some ware for upcoming holiday and birthday gifting, pieces designated for this year's BikeSLOCounty event (cancelled due to Covid), and a few others.
Red glaze tests look great! Formula is same as "Chrome Red" in John Britt's book - I got it from a friendly instructor.
Very happy with green also, "Rutile Green" from Bill Van Gilder's book.
Objectives for the year are changing - we have an ongoing crisis.
*build up inventory toward a Fall sale event of some kind;
*work on a white glaze;
*work on this website!;
*donate to local organizations.
