Last Saturday I vended my odd wares at the Saint John City Market. I had a friend look after the booth for a couple hours as I went to the Saint John Arts Center to teach a clay class to several 5 to 7 year old children.
At the Arts Center, the kids made books with outlined pictures of Audrey, in addition to making two thumb pots.
In the market I sold oddities and older wares. I’m coming out with new work later this week, so I’m trying to clear out place.
One mug I saw leave was my teacher, self portrait. It was my favorite and I had a hard time letting it go. In fact, I was drinking cold coffee out of it for the first time, when C. came up to say how much they loved the teacher mug. I sold it, but I also miss it.
Someone close to me says that I only lease out my pottery; that I secretly hope to have every piece back again. It could be true.
