One more day of sporting the blue vest emblazoned with "How may I help you?" and the smiley face logo.
Tomorrow we revert back to studio clothes covered in clay and our own faces become smiley. I've come to the conclusion I like making pots more than I like selling them. After 30 years of retail I am ready to become a pottery introvert and wholesale to stores. We did have some of our students and friends drop by which was so nice and so thoughtful. They can come any ole time and we don't need to have an open house for that.
Some old customers came and were in shock as to the new work. I started my morning by reading Page 236 of Micheal Cardew's Pioneer Pottery. This is my favourite page on Ceramic philosophy. I wish I could have chatted with old Micheal. I have read this page on more than a yearly basis for over 30 years. It helps me to keep course
