Home again.

It feels like I’ve been away for weeks. I’m not sure yet what I feel about the trade show, it’s still sinking in I suppose. I took a couple of firm orders for work, a few possibilities for things that might come back in the future so that was all good. One order is from Andrew Appleby a potter on Orkney, he has ordered some large jugs and plates for his shop for the summer. I was a little disappointed at the amount of visitors to the show who actually stopped at my stand although lots of fellow exhibitors were very complimentary, in fact a number said they had bought my pots previously which was lovely. I was quite pleased with how my stand looked, very very different from having pots on clay covered shelves in the workshop!
I had an email today telling me I had been selected as part of the Northern Potters Association to have space on their stand to exhibit my work at Earth and Fire in Nottingham this year. I am really pleased about this if a little worried about the amount of work I need to make as I was their last year exhibiting and I think I will be good to be there a second year.
I’ve just enjoyed catching up on everyone elses blog entries, I think I’ve become an addict, I had withdrawal symptoms while I was away!

    Good to see you back on-line. Your stand looks great, almost like a museum showcase. Great that you’re going to be at Earth and Fire. It’ll soon be Clay Art and Bovey. I haven’t got any pots left having taken the rest to John Edgeler on Friday so I’m in the same boat – lots to do when I get back home. Did you manage to sort your firing thing out?

    Hannah, The booth looks great and the pots of course do too. Congrats on getting in Earth and Fire. Hard to believe we are all so far apart in distance, the internet makes up for it I guess. Take care. Ron
