Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: holiday

The year is coming to a close and I’d like to take a quick moment to thank everyone who has
helped make my year so enjoyable & memorable. So many friends & family have helped &
encouraged me throughout the year. It’s a tough road as a self-supporting artist these days,
and without my supportive customers & eager students this year it would have been tougher!
Not to mention all of my summer camp kids that make me laugh every day all summer long.
Thanks again to everyone who was so important in my life this year!

As we enter the New Year, I need to figure out what my clay “future” will be.
New directions… new textures… new stamps… new fun in the studio!!!
More clay… less clay… more art fairs… fewer art fairs?… or more of the same?
More stores?… fewer stores?… Etsy?… change my aversion to packing & shipping?
Who knows… so many things to think about in the coming days….
Goodbye 2010.  Hello 2011.
