I had several boxes come back from a gallery that was consigning my work . It didn't seem to be a good fit in that my pots did not sell well there so I was ejected. Not really! I had a good relationship with the owners and I feel like they represented me well. It just didn't seem to be the right place for my work. It's a drag when something doesn't work out but really I can't expect my pots to fly off the shelves just because they are out there. (Or should I?? Come on city people buy those rat pots and those laundry lines!!!)
I had forgotten about some of these pots. It's fun to see them again. At the time I was doing simple line drawings and some blocks of color with patterns. It's neat that in just a few months things changed and I am where I am now. I like that I'm putting more work/detail into the drawings at the present. Sometimes just a little more thought and effort can make a huge difference.
A lot of this work is still nice and I'll certainly put these on the shelves in the showroom and list some on Etsy.
I'm hoping for a big day of making tomorrow. My clay didn't arrive Friday, but I've got about 200 lbs in the shop.
