The Trail was a great success! My studio was a buzzing…hundreds of people visiting, asking questions, looking at the details of my pottery studio and buying pots. One of my favorite things about studio sales is the very fact that a buyer can see how things are made, see an artist’s surroundings and ask questions. It brings a little extra home with you….a little reminder of the experience every time you use the pot!
An exciting thing about the trail is building community. We are nine potter’s living fairly close to each other living our separate lives, making our individual work (and our very different work). We come together for these couple of months to meet and plan for the Trail. It’s not a competition, it’s really about cooperation. I direct my customers to Tiffany’s for the stoneware dinnerware set, or Molly’s for the whimsical story pots, or Tom’s for the wood fired pots, and so on. We really work together to make the whole experience for our customers a easy-going, fun-filled day!
For those of you who came for the tour I hope you enjoyed it!
