I have been making some pots and put a few loads through. It feel good to be back at the wheel. All the orders have been filled and I am now just making pots. I had a load of Prairies come out last week.
It was a good load, but I am finding it hard to find someone to sell my pots too. I had hoped to find a client in Waterton Lake National Park, as it is only a couple of hours from here, and I would deliver, but they pretty much close down for the winter.
I tried to get my foot in the door in Lethbridge, but the locals potters have that market filled. I have tied to get some interest in ” the funky stuff” , but I haven’t found anyone interested in the fun or the funky.
They are fun to make, but they really do need a home.

I have signed up for a few local craft fairs for the Christmas market, but for the first time in a long time, I have pots and no customers. It has always been the other way around.
I have a bisque load firing tonight, and by the weekend, I will have another kiln load of pots. I am going to have to find a few customers soon, or I will have a storage problem.
Until next time,
