Laura, Susan and I had a fun, fun sale on Saturday. We had a good crowd of folks come out. No one I invited made it out, which I found disturbing, but oh well, we had some sales and I had some moments of enlightenment about my work. Wesley and Gerry have been saying for a while that I need to do more Raku and sculpture and what do you think sold? My Raku and sculpture pieces. Not one of my yunomi sold, which I was surprised about. Susan said that I wasn't ready to give them up yet and that's why they didn't sell. She may have something there. I know that I really like them and have become attached to them because of the sentimentality of the wood firing they came from. So- good, I have a new set of cups. But, now I am so confused and I need to do some thinking about what I really want out of all of this and why I'm doing it in the first place. What I do know is that I have to great friends and we had a really good time doing this sale together. I think that this will become an annual event for us. Tim's friends came out and brought instruments, we had a bonfire, great food and I met some wonderful people.
This was our support team. These are four of the most interesting and amazing kids I have ever met.They cleaned, brought food and drink, wrapped, took money, wrote the receipts and were generally a lot of fun to be with. Benny on the left is a banjo player, Jonas and Jolene in the middle, Susan's kids, and Wesley on the end. Thanks guys!!!
