Fond Farewell

Selling work is not easy. The money is fabulous, don't get me wrong. Especially these days, with pay cuts, and looming strikes. But, saying goodbye to a piece that you love is really difficult. I have pieces that I think are landmarks. In other words, out of the steady stream of work, they are standouts. They might represent a change in style, a new glaze combination, or a new direction in thinking. To me, they sparkle. The landmark work often ends up in the house, and becomes part of the decor. I bring them into the house, because I want to look at these pieces, to let them soak in. All other work ends up being stored in the clay shed studio, out in the yard. That way, I don't become too attached!

These two landmark pieces recently went to a new home, luckily the same home. So long old friends. Off to new adventures! Here's hoping you end up on the mantle or the nightstand!
