After the Mound
The South Charleston Mound is an old native American burial site yet it is the center of the city so the grounds around it is used as a plaza and park combined and that is where the mound Festival is held.
I was there on Saturday. the weather turned out much better than I expected, no storms, nonetheless I got really hot, but I had friends stop by and stay for a visit notably Lynn who taught me pottery in the first place, the sales were good. I sold more big items than usual although less small purchases, but it all evened out and my sales were up from last year.
Again, for the 7th year in a row I got an award, this time for Fine art 2nd place, it varies between sculpture, fine art and pottery.
I didn’t take pictures because I was sort of burnt out from my previous show but I promise pictures next show.
Now it is back to the studio to fill orders seems the Internet is kind to and seems people are finding me at my website http://www.clayvillepottery.com/ Got a call from a new gallery and a new show.
I am working on filling the orders but always have to have some for me, 6 Catliffs for Tamarack and 2 grape leaf masks for me, 2 Clayzards for Tamarack and 2 larger versions for me, an order of “All For One” and a new “Under the Tulip Tree” for me.
I will have to see how they all turn out, keeping my toes crossed because my fingers are too busy.
