show!

Here are some photos from our show this weekend. We don't have actual photos from the opening yet but here are some photos from the day before when we had just about finished the installation.

We had a good turnout for the opening, not as many as we'd hoped but we were in competition with many other events last night! The show will be up for nearly 2 months so I'm not too worried about it. Sales were much better than I had anticipated, the gallery says it is one of the most successful openings(sales-wise) that they have ever had. We sold about 50 pieces from all but 2 potters out of the 270 pieces that were there, not too shabby.

We are going to take some photos of what is available and post them online so if anyone is interested they will have an opportunity to purchase work. The gallery takes only a 10% commission so most of the work is priced right around what you would pay for it straight from their studios. A few of the potters (Scott Roberts, Willem Gebben, Linda Christianson, Kent Harris, myself) had set pots aside for this show and they are what they consider the best of the best, so this is a rare opportunity to get some of this work for fair prices. We won't have an online cart system, you'll have to call or email, first come first served. The gallery will charge for packing and shipping and they won't ship out until the end of the show(end of June.) I'll post it here as soon as we get the images up, so you'll have to check back soon! I hope to have it up Monday morning, but it may be as late as Tuesday.

Cheers!

The show looks great, It's great to see the pots given so much space that you can appreciate them.

One of the best pot exhibitons I have ever seen.
Excellent stuff.
