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

All set and ready to go early Saturday morning. Of course, there was a little bit of scrambling going on… last minute pricing, ornament wiring, getting ready. Wouldn’t be an art fair without some scrambling, right?! Anyway, the art fair began and the weather was incredible. So much fun seeing so many of my loyal customers, making new friends, chatting with a lot of “My Talented Friends” and selling a bunch of pottery along the way!!! And with my double-booth, there was a LOT of pottery to go around.

Once again I was pleased to receive this ribbon – TOP TEN SELLER 2012.
It’s always nice to know that you’re in the Top Ten… which also then gets you a double booth!
I must admit that it is my favorite ribbon to receive. A prize for selling my work!!!

And even better, an exciting ribbon to receive – BEST OF CERAMICS 2013.
Another ribbon to add to my collection. Very exciting.

For the record, “Art In The Barn” is a fundraising event for the hospital. I’m not sure that all of the art fair visitors are aware of that. So I’ve made some signs that help clear it up. I think it’s important that customers know that a portion of their money is going to the hospital… while only 80% goes to the artist. In this case… Me.
