Greetings to the List,

I'm writing on behalf of the Pecos Valley Potters Guild in Roswell,
NM where we have had a very succesful annual Christmas Pottery Sale
for many years (30-40 potters, sales of about $10,000). The Guild is
at an important crossroads this year and the sale is expanding to a
larger number of exhibitors (about 70) many of whom are not potters.

What we would appreciate is help with two issues:

1. What criteria have been developed by other Guilds in judging
indivdual items or works exhibited at shows?

2. What criteria have been developed by Guilds in judging overall
presentation or displays at shows?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me
directly at:
or mail to:
Robert Phillips
Eastern NM University-Roswell
PO Box 6000
Roswell, NM 88202
or post comments to the list as appropriate.

Thanks to all who make this list such a valuable resource, and we
look forward to hearing from you.

Bob Phillips
