2nd Place!

What an honor!!!  Thank you to all three judges and everyone who shopped with me!  It was great to meet my neighbor artists and others that came out just to browse and talk.

But that’s not all…..

On Saturday my work was accepted into the Crimson Laurel Gallery!!!  If you do not know this gallery, it is one of a few PREMIER Ceramics galleries in the U.S.!  My pots are now being displayed among some masters of the craft.  This is a dream come true!  Andy and Silvia, the gallery operators, were a wonderful pair to talk to and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND A VISIT to their gallery and Bakersville, NC!  You can also shop online….hint, hint
