congrats, Karen on winning the gift certificate from Bailey!   they appear surprised that anyone recognized Alan Caiger-Smith's work.


i cannot imagine any serious potter NOT recognizing it!


Ha ha, you surprised me by connecting that to me. Thanks! His work is gorgeous.

I have enjoyed looking at everyone's spaces.  Here is mine, fairly neat after an Open Studio weekend. It is a one car garage. I took a pic of each of the 4 sides. One of the best things about it is the level cement floor. I dry most things on it. In the left corner by the garage door is a "rain" barrel full of clean water from the hose. In addition I collect rain in the 5 gallon found buckets.

Small bedroom in the basement where I throw and part of the shop for the kiln and glazing.


These are pics of the shop.


Are those buckets of glaze on the shelf 6 high? If so, how do you lift them??

I have learned from MA potter Steve Murphy to use 3 holes. That way there are 3 possibilities to hang it. You can put the holes in the foot, or if you do platters like me with no foot, you can do the following. (This platter is 19")

In Topic: My First Show!

I few days before my first show, I was at a crowded gallery opening for some well known potters (Warren Mckenzie, Mark Shapiro, Randy Johnston...). One of the people in the crowd was Steve Branfman, who I had taken a workshop from many years prior. I was chatting with him and mentioned that I was doing my first show. He gave me a piece of advice that saved me many times over. He said, "If you don't sell anything, don't take it personally, and if you sell a lot, don't take it personally.


Rebekah, I love your pots. Thanks for sharing your experience.

BTW, I loved the plaid cloth!  :)
