As stated in the last post, I took three pieces to Albemarle for the "Summer Art Explosion" juried show at Falling Rivers Gallery. Well, I got a call yesterday and guess what? I won first prize for this olive oil cruet. It's pretty exciting. A few years ago I won an honorable mention at a show but since then I had not entered anything for competitions, mainly because I just don't hold favorite pieces back for those times when I need a piece so the timing just never worked out. I wish now that I had photographed the piece in my photo booth. The award ceremony is August 9th, 6-8pm.
This week I have been adding a number of new pieces to my online shop for the Christmas in July sale. Customers receive 20% off with coupon code CIJ2013 at checkout.
