Proper Display

I really like displaying work properly. My background is showroom design for the furniture markets and set design for theaters so I'm all about display and merchandising. At the Clay and Blog show Friday night, Hollis picked up one of Doug Fitch's very lovely jugs, as a true potter would, to get a better look, and found packing peanuts still in it. We got a good laugh out of that. Attention to detail people.
I have created a tab called potsparazzi where you can see more pictures from the blog show and I think I will use this space to post other pictures of potters as they come along. Check it out.
This was part of my display for Festifall in Chapel Hill. I wish I could do more, it's really hard to do what I would like to do with a Subaru wagon and a 10X10 space. If I was doing indoor pipe and drape shows that really need proper display pieces I would have to make some changes. For now this works ok for what I'm doing though. Here I have just used old apple crates and a very old Ralph Lauren blanket with a few pumpkins, it is fall after all! I did get a lot of nice comments on my display, so thank you for your comments everyone!
...........again, just saying.........................

You have a great display, seeing yours got me thinking how I will display my work to complement my style.

those are great photos you posted, thanks. I might have to hire you as a consultant to set my booth display.

I don't know Linda, you're a pretty creative girl! By the way, I really loved your hair, I want some of those blue streaks!! You have to update your photo now that you have a new do!

I think your display looks great. The colors in the blanket work perfectly with the colors on your work and the apple crates have this old rustic look that brings a charm to the display without being distracting. It's evident that you paid attention to detail.

Hi Tracey,

You're display is lovely. I'm never ever ever satisfied with my stands wherever they are. I would love to get someone in to do something fab for me. I have a completly new plan for my next show. It's so hard when every show is so different from the last and they all require different things and a different sort of look.
