Today is the start of the tour at NorthernIlPotteryTour.com! And it’s the first day for my new Etsy site, NancyGormanPottery..and I have already had my first sale! So exciting. I’ll be doing a demo of sgraffito tomorrow at 1 pm. Check the website to register for a free Eventbrite ticket so you can watch all of the potters demonstrations via Zoom.
I have posted my show schedule for 2018…at least the shows I am anticipating since the jurying process has not yet finished! But I will make any changes once the official news is in. I will now have about a dozen pieces in the LaGrange Art League Gallery in LaGrange, Illinois. I will be changing these out every month or two to keep the selection fresh. Meanwhile, I’ll be hard a work building my inventory for the 2018 season. I’m looking forward to experimenting with the new soda kiln at ClaySpace, hoping I like the more random effects it can create on my sgraffito wares.
Thanks to some lovely photography by friend Jean Burnett, I have added some new work to my extended gallery page. I’ve also added a new show to the 2017 schedule, the Prairie Arts Festival in Schaumburg on Memorial Day weekend. Now back to the studio to keep building the inventory for the busy season ahead!
Pottery, I love. Technology not so much. I have just spent over an hour trying to update my website so that my extended gallery shows some of my latest work and was only able to get one to picture to load. Aaaargh! Any hints to working with WordPress and Juicebox would be appreciated!
Someone called me yesterday about ordering a mug to replace the one her husband dropped and broke, but somehow (husband?) the message was erased from my answering machine. I’m hoping the person who called checks my website and calls back because I am currently well stocked with mugs but after the Grove sale in 2 weeks I may run low!
