I was juried into this years Strictly Functional Pottery National. The cork bottle above was chosen by jury Pete Pinnell. Out of 1252 pieces he selected 108. Its kind of mind blowing that your work is one of the few that was selected. It's quite the honor. I've been thinking lately about sending stuff off to galleries for shows and sales. I have been shying away from this. I sell work at one local gallery and another couple hours away. I want to send my portfolio off to more bigger, establish galleries. My dilemma is that i'm moving away from what I was making in grad school and trying some new stuff. It's not quite as strong as I would like it. Also, I don't have a definite studio. I've been using the one where I teach at and its not a stable long term job. I would also like to teach workshops. I did send a portfolio out for that, but haven't heard anything yet.
