On February 20, the Hawaii Craftsmen had their semi-annual fundraiser at the Pacific Club, a beautiful location in the heart of Honolulu. I love getting together with the rest of the artists and catching up on what's going on in their lives and seeing what new ideas they're exploring in their art. I especially enjoyed speaking at length with Francisco Clemente, a great woodworker (www.galeriaclemente.com). He's an insightful artist and shared some critiques of my pots that were helpful. The sales were brisk and quite a few major pieces sold throughout the night. I even sold four out of five pieces which was great for me.
I began potting in January of 2012. Because I'm so new to potting, I think I understand the challenges of beginning potters and hope this blog will be encouraging to them and a source of helpful information and comment. I hope you'll join the conversation!
