Last Monday I dropped off pieces at a new gift shop in Matthews, NC called the White Stag. They are still in the remodeling stage. The grand opening is July 3rd. I won't be able to attend since I will be on vacation, but I can't wait to see the store when I get back.
After dropping the pieces off I headed to our cabin with my mom for a week. I stained our new shed, we visited the NC Arboretum and went to the Blue Ridge BBQ festival. It was good to have a break.
This week I have been working on new work every day. Today I made olive oil bottles and these two vases. I am trying to make some pieces for a new gallery that I am going to need jury pieces by mid July. All the pieces I have made the last few months have gone to a number of other galleries and I do not have anything special ready. My new work takes so much more time to make that I feel like I am moving in slow motion.
On Friday I will be dropping off work for the Earth and Fire Pottery Festival at the Depot in Kings Mountain. The show runs from June 25th-July 26th. The reception is June 29th.
Saturday I will be going to the ClayMatters Guild summer workshop. The presenter is Amy Sanders and I am looking forward to getting more inspiration.
