No tables clothes

Well I'm getting ready for the 260 Fingers Show in Canada's Capital City- Ottawa. Man this is looking like a classy event with wine and finger food for the opening and a beautiful dinner Saturday night for all the artists. I'm bunking with 3 or 4 really top notch potters so I am sure there will be some conversation, much laughter and a tiny wee bit of indulgence.   I got this directive from one of the presenters- "just like it to be classy-like as we are all about showing ceramics to NOT BE cheap rubbish a la Guild sale-o-rama: NO TABLE Fucking Cloths for example". Oh this will set off the fires of my blog readers. Hey you want to be invited to an invitational show then live up to it. I've been at this almost all my life so it is time I took the high road. It is a traffic jam on the low road and it ain't doing much to educate the new demographic that are sizing down or the young that ought to be choosing interesting.
Choose interesting is my motto!

Ottawa is only 3.5 hrs from us so we shall try to come up and see the show!! Sounds like a good time for you and well-surrounded will you be bringing baskets? ;)

You are arrogant and full of yourself as usual! You continually trash the Guild that you are a member of and is now PAYING you to be the mentor of a Wood Firing Mentorship. The proceeds from the sale with the table cloths is paying you. Also if the Guild doesn't do a good job of educating people, is that reflected in choosing you as a mentor? You can't have it both ways!! SHAME ON YOU!!! You don't deserve to be the mentor.
