Topics I've Started
Posted 3 Jul 2012Another spin-off thread.
I asked this question previously of the folks who are repeatedly critical/judgemental towards noobies selling their wares but didn't receive a reply.
You are the organizer of a Craft Fair/Art Show/Farmer's market. There is a local potter who only has a year or so of experience who wants to take a space in the market and attempt to sell their wares for the first time.
Would it be better for "pottery" to allow this person a space and give "pottery" some exposure...or would it be better for pottery as a whole to tell them they aren't good enough and have no potters whatsoever represented at this market?
To be, or not to be?
And a deeper question dealing with "criticism"....if you are so inclined to comment...
If you saw someone selling at a show who is an obvious noob, would you confront them and tell them they need far more experience before they should ever even think about selling their work...like you do here...or is this just an Internet "hide behind the keyboard" kinda thing goin on that you wouldn't have the nerve to say to someone's face?
not trying too be "negative".....just truly want to know where the folks stand who have been critical towards noobs talking about selling their wares.
have a great day everyone...
Posted 24 Jun 2012I know there have been a few "to stamp..or not to stamp?" threads here since I joined the list....but I thought it might be fun (?) to share what your stamp actually looks like.
Kinda that "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" taken to a different place.....LOL.
When I first thought of a name I was very, very sad. Thus...the name "teadrop" here.
I'm still very, very sad....but "clay"...and "time passing" has brought on a new perspective and a new feeling of honor towards my son's memory. I'm not blowing glass like he did....but we ARE making glass just the same....
He was and will always be "Mtn-BURN".....and he marked his glasswork as such.
In his honor...I have also chosen the moniker "Mountain Burn". It is my Facebook name (stop by!) and now....the name of my new pottery (klunkery!) business.... "Mountain Burn Pottery"
80 peices stamped so far. If you see this logo out there....it's >>my<< crap yer lookin at! I also had a stamp with just the mountains and "BURN" made that is smaller....
Gonna do some T-Shirts as well.... cus with a slogan like "Have you BURNED today?" or "Let's BURN one".....I think they could easily be popular items around here...LOL.
No matter what....this should be loads of fun. Not only is it great therapy for the head....I also feel i am honoring my son and his love of glass and glassblowing.
So if yer out there....look for my ceramic work or look for my tattooed ankle...'cus both are marked with the moniker "Mtn-BURN"
