Last weekend I had the first solo show of my pottery career. I started
working on a line up of work in September and I had about 5o pieces to
present. All the work was barrel fired so I had several incredible successe=
and some losses along the way
Fifteen years ago I created a list of things to do in my life. Of the many
things I had written down along with paying off the mortgage, more
travelling, was a goal of having a solo show.
The show was a success, I heard so many complements and encouragements.
After years of dragging around craft shows trying to sell work and carrying
it all home at the end, several pieces sold. Boy that felt good.
After lurking here on clayart for a couple years I have learned so much. Th=
questions asked and the advice given freely, I could have gotten no where
else. If anyone had ever mentioned anything to do with primitive firing I
was listening. Even to the point of how to talk about it.
I would like to thank all the members of clayart who helped me to achieve
one of my life's goals. Thank you to the moderators who do so much work
behind the scene. May you all have similar successes.

It takes a lot to put a show together. Those who do it earn my unqualifi=
respect! Give us some of the details: where? photos? what's next?

>I, as well, looked for images of David Todd's first solo show -- well
>done! -- but alas no link aside from rafting trips on river. Brrrrr!!
Au contraire! It may not be the first show, but I would bet some of this
body of work was in the show; lot's of lovelies to look at here:
