Post Celebration Post


I am happy to report that our last show of the year was a success. It was our best weekend in Seagrove to date. Sales were good at the Celebration of Seagrove Potters as well as at our own gallery. The added bonus was hearing that "cha-ching" on my phone alerting me to an online sale in my Etsy shop! Finally having a smartphone helped me manage my Etsy shop while I was at the show. If something sold online, I took it off the display. If it sold at the show, and was listed on Etsy, I could quickly deactivate it.

 

This luscious copper red and tenmoku  piggy bank came out of the kiln that we unloaded on Friday. He is a larger pig - a little over 8" long and was a special order. This is one of those times that the glaze did everything you want it to. I love how the red broke into black around the ears and snout. It ties in so well with the tenmoku belly. One side has some beautiful mottling of white/gray.
Now to see if this can be duplicated...

  1. I rarely have luck with that duplication thing on the glazes especially reduction glazes but I bet you'll succeed.

  5. So glad you had a good weekend! I have seen other people mention the "cha-ching" with an etsy sale, but have no idea how you set that up. That would certainly be helpful during shows. I'm loving my purchase!

  6. Laurie - the cha-ching happens when you have the Etsy seller app on your phone.
    Glad you like your purchase :-)
