Every time Brandon Phillips has an Etsy sale I miss it because I don't have any extra cash and then I regret not getting something, but this time when his sale went up and I saw this little jar I had to have it. I have had a few good shows this month so I treated myself to an early Christmas present!
It now sits next to this McKenzie Smith jar that I use for kosher salt. This jar came from Leonora Coleman's collection. When she passed away her daughter invited some of us that worked at Claymakers to come over and select a piece and this is the one that I picked out. I think they look really great together. Haven't decided what the new jar will be used for, but it will get used, that's for sure!
I also have a new painting from the Saxapahaw gallery. I traded the artist for one of my barns this weekend. It looked so great in the room I was in and complimented my work very nicely. Look closely behind the boy in the yellow shirt and you will see a barn that looks very much like the ones I make!
The new gallery was a big hit in Saxapahaw this weekend and again I would like to thank everyone that came and bought work from all of us. Many of the artists had friends and family come out for the opening (not me) and I have lots of new fans of my barns, thanks to all of you!
