Mint museum show in charlotte
Ok folks, now for the real deal, i talked in my last entry about a certain crappy show (yes, i'm still miffed!), but now i am packing up for one of my favorite shows i have done in the last two years, the mint museums potters market. it is an invitational show held at the randolph road mint museum (not the one downtown). they invite the biggest names in clay from north carolina and also some emerging potters as well. this is a one day show held this saturday sept. 8th from 10 am - 5pm, it is definitely a no miss event! I will be shackin up with my buddy michael kline from okra pottery, goin down early to set up, the two previous years i had drove down saturday morning and set up before the event started, which meant leaving around four am! not this time baby! doin it in style, hopefully by 8pm i will be sipping a double jack on the rocks by the hotel pool, waiting for the coming days' excitement, folks start lining up early and when the gate opens its at least 3 hours of pure crazyiness! Lee Love from japan left a comment on the last entry about shows in japan, his blog is really interesting and one of the ones that pushed my buttons to start my blog (the potters journal by ron philbeck was the other). i do believe that if your work is of a higher level of craft and not just run of the mill stuff, it helps emensily if your surrounded by great work. if your in the area of charlotte this weekend please check out this show. will report back to you after the show wish me luck!
