Home sweet home.
Here I am home again and it’s been wild and raining all day after I’ve been stuck inside for the last four days while it’s been gloriously sunny! Sod’s law I suppose. Well I am as always glad to be home, it was a tough few days. Obviously honey and black slip trailed functional pots were not on the want list for any of the galleries visiting the show. I felt very disheartened over the event and it’s really hard to keep up the interest and enthusiasm and the smile when you don’t feel like you are getting any response, positive or otherwise from visitors. I was pleased though to see that people were placing orders with other exhibitors which gave me hope after all the dire news that the radio and newspapers pump out daily. There was money being spent though people reported that sales were less than they would have hoped for but it wasn’t all doom and gloom. So there is hope!
I have come home without any orders as yet though whether things come on in the future you never can tell. I’d hoped I might attract a few new galleries too. What the upside of that is though that I now have more time to be making new things hopefully without having too many deadlines up close. I am going to work toward having a good body of new work to go and get photographed properly before the summer. I need some good new images of new work and get some new cards printed and the website is currently being updated with some new things but there is more that needs doing.
So tomorrow I’ll unpack all the things that I took and get them all stashed away safely, Amanda is going to bring them all over tomorrow as we travelled down together in her handy car/van. Today I was doing mainly thinking and a few phone calls and turning those plates from last week and then I threw a big bowl just because I could!
