Thank you, thank you , thank you to all my customers who recognize and appreciate unique, hand crafted items. The farmer's market on Saturday was very successful thanks to you. But, there was that one guy who came by towards the end of the market day. The one who asked if the $15.00 price marked on a mug was for a set. That $15.00 price was on one of my "normal" sized mugs, not the large, but is considered a fairly low price in the pottery world even for an ordinary mug. I didn't let on that I was insulted by the question, but I was. I have to keep in mind that maybe in the big box stores you can get a set of mugs for $15.00, and that is his only frame of reference. Too bad. I do run into similar comments from time to time and wonder how those people have gotten through life without learning that some things take time, education, and experience, and don't we expect to pay for that? Attorneys, accountants, plumbers for example. Health care! Fortunately, I have customers who do recognize this and I had some great sales before Mars man came by.
Bowl I had in last post. I'm pretty satisfied with the glaze. Something about the birds bugs me- need to think about that, but overall I'm O.K. with it. I will take this to Riverside Artists Gallery this week.
