It's been a while since I have been able to find time to write a blog which has been bothering me, but we have had a constant stream of market events and festivals to prepare for and attend in the last few weeks - including being part of the Ravenswood School for Girls Art Fair, The Glebe Street Fair and yesterday the Wahroonga Xmas Fair - to mention just a few. That's aside from our regular North Sydney Produce and the Orange Grove Organic Market in Leichardt. So its been pretty busy.
There have been a couple of weekends where we have done back to back events on Saturday and Sunday, which has been challenging and exhausting, but well worth while. The word is definitely spreading now, after a few months of doing this, that we are out there displaying a choice of quality functional pottery which changes constantly. People are fascinated by the very different styles of the various potters and some of the innovation that our potters deliver.
Yesterday on a very hot and busy day in Wahroonga we drew the winner of our very first Competition - The Spring Competition 2016 - which has been running since October, but closed on Sunday after 10 weeks. The lucky winner of this beautiful piece is Colin Bovo - we contacted him early this week and he and his wife will be collecting the Ginger Jar from us at the Orange Grove market next Saturday. Thanks Katherine Mahoney for drawing the winning ticket for us!!
We are already looking for another unique and gorgeous piece of pottery to tempt you next year - we will run an another competition launching on February 1 in time for Autumn 2017. So watch this space for details in a few weeks time.
Next Saturday we are at the Orange Grove Markets in Leichardt and will be loaded up with great ideas for hand made, unique, Australian Clay Xmas presents. Hope to see you there.
