I’m like the dude that brings a bottle of olives to a potluck

The Guild sale goes through the weekend and setup was yesterday. I didn’t bring much to the party, but I’m trying to offer help via pictures and posts. My truck is available on the weekend and clean-up if anyone requests. I’m in the middle of the year-end issue of the magazine, so not much else I can contribute.

I was kindly offered some kiln space to fill a last-minute load by Willi Eggerman and Berit Naeseth, so I submitted a small shelf of bisque ware I had sitting around. Not sure if I’ll bring them to the sale, yet.

I can’t imagine myself ever attempting the production that some of these talented artists at the Gild put forth. I see the satisfaction and excitement they exhibit along with their wares, and it’s inspiring.

I’ll continue at-available-pace, exploring the smorgasbord of creative possibilities that the mud will allow. If any of you are in the Boulder, CO area you will find some stunning work displayed and a diverse representation of the art.
