I used to come by a lot when I was making a lot of pottery, but then found jewelry making/Metalsmithing! It's truly my first love! But the gods seem to keep pushing me back to pottery. I applied to two juried shows for Metalsmithing, they asked me to bring pottery, too. I know there is a LOT of jewelry at sales, AND I just had a terrible jewelry show, so I'm going to do what the show directors requested and make some pottery for my upcoming shows.
I make the spoon rests that someone here (Mark, maybe?!?) recommended to make to cover the cost of the show, make ring holders to go with my jewelry. I hate making mugs. Sigh. I make custom name mugs, I'm really busy at the holidays, but since I also work full-time, it's hard to time everything with the handles, etc. so I don't knowing want to make mugs to bring. Also, for a 3 day show, how many mugs would you bring?
I hoped pottery was going to be me stress-relieving hobby, but it doesn't seem that's going to happen. I want to retire from teaching in two years, so i also need to be practical.
Thanks for any help,
