I’ve been inspired recently to sculpt wine-bottle stoppers. This past Saturday, December 3rd, I exhibited at a show for the first time in years. My life had been so busy with creating Chestnut Creek School of the Arts and spending time at City Gallery in Galax, not to mention teaching classes at Wytheville Community College, that I had not taken time to concentrate on exhibiting. Saturday proved to be a wonderful day at Draper Mercantile-food, music, artists, craftspeople, and even Santa. The weather was beautiful and the crowd of people were merry. Here are pictures of the stoppers. I’ve sold out, but while I was showing my pottery, lampworked beads and paintings, I also demonstrated sculpting. I have a few more goddess’ going through the process of drying to a leather hard condition, then I’ll bisque fire and then glaze fire. Let me know if you’re interested in purchasing one. Only $20 each.
