Over the weekend, I made the rounds of the Tennessee Craft fair in Nashville, Tennessee. There were a LOT of clay artist & potters exhibiting there and all-in-all the quality is up from some less-than-stellar previous years. I did get at chance to chat with Helene Fielder at her booth. I watched her on Facebook as she tackled a Summer of 50 Teapots project. At the fair, several of those amazing teapots were featured (and for sale). What shocked me, however, was the scale of these creations. Take a look at this image, and guess how tall this piece is? Here is my question: What are best practices to give buyers a sense of size (scale) of work displayed in pictures...(not just in the description)? OK (spoiler alert). The piece displayed in the picture (above) is approximately 20" tall. Are there clues in the image that would help a shopper understand that? Paul:)
Several people have mentioned needing instructions for uploading images to the Gallery. I put together the attached pdf today while listening to a boring town hall meeting at work. This is step by step creating a new album and uploading images with screenshots of each step. If additional instructions for modifying an existing album are needed, let me know. I have learned so much about ceramics from this group in such a short time that I wanted to help however I can ... my day job is computers so this I can contribute!

In a recent thread we discussed the development of a personal style, and the value of looking at the work of other potters in developing ones own. I happened across a pretty nifty online resource recently, and thought I'd share it. The Smithsonian and the Freer Gallery are well worth a visit, but you can get an online fix here: http://collections.si.edu/search/index.htm I put in "song stoneware" Wow The images are very high resolution, and allow you to see many details not really available in books. I hope others will add some of their own favorite online resources for this sort of free-form gazing-in-awe.
