This weekend was literally a new era for me and my pottery business. It was the first art fair I've participated in since having a year and a half off over the pandemic. I am laser focused setting up a booth - packing, unpacking, ironing linens, assembling shelves, and lastly the fun part - getting out all my pottery and displaying and arranging it. I love to meet all my fans and get to know them, but it is also a nice time sit with my work and pause a moment. How am I doing? Does this mug shape work with this bowl shape? Do my items look like they belong together? Are my prices fair? I ask questions and write notes down and get ready for all the things I will do the same or do differently. I make lists of items I am out of. And I try to talk to other artists and learn from them.
