This is hardly pottery related unless you are a potter on the prowl for some people to sell pots to. In which case you can relate.
It takes John several hours to decide which pots he’s taking to the show.
And the hardest thing to know is: ‘What People Want To Buy’.
We don’t know.
Well, then. Add this to the need to see into the future. We don’t know what our booth space will look or feel like, so setting up the display can be harder. And then, the pots have to work together and make each other look good. They do all get along, we are lucky, so that’s not a problem 😉
Then, we have to re-arrange the pots left behind (they are a little sad, true) so that the gallery looks good. That’s my job.
I pull together all the literature, the biz cards, the posters, the pit fire information, the price tags, tape, naproxen, hand lotion and cash for the cash box.
The biz of art and pottery and art shows.
I can’t wait for this one.
