But really, the best way to choose shows that are a good fit is to visit them in person, and see them with your own eyes. I would stick to local shows for your first year, while also taking road trips to visit the further ones in person. Choose carefully and start investing in road shows in 2015.

My name is Mea Rhee, and I am the potter behind Good Elephant Pottery, which has recently become a full-time venture after many years. I make functional pottery for daily use, fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln. My designs are minimal and rustic, and always functional. I consider myself "self-taught" in that I am not formally trained in ceramics, though I have had many wonderful teachers along the way. My degree is in graphic design, and most of my professional life has revolved around a busy design studio, which these days has been relegated to a "side business" now that my pottery studio demands most of my time. Still, my design background influences my pottery work all the time, both in terms of aesthetic principles and the administration of a small business. I am located in Silver Spring, Maryland, which is just outside of Washington DC. I also teach pottery classes at the Greenbelt Community Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. My current classes include Intermediate Wheel, Advanced Wheel, and an annual wood-firing workshop.
