I’ve been making some bicycle-themed pottery lately. This weekend I’ll be selling an entire dinnerware set (5pcs each for 4 placesettings) at a fundraiser for the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild. The set is priced at $400.
For those who don’t know, MCG offers free after-school art classes for high-school students. We keep kids off the streets, teach them art, and sometimes help them get into college.
Joe, are you proposing? I accept. But who gets the china if we divorce?
BTW, for those who aren’t familiar with handmade pottery, notice how well Jeff has shaped the bottom of that bowl, and that he photographed it to prove it. That’s a detail that too many artisans omit because the public doesn’t appreciate it.
For anyone who’s interested, the set did not sell as a whole, and for a limited time, the pieces are being offered individually (at a reduced price, at that).
The Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild’s gallery is open to the public weekdays from 9-5. Just sign in at the front desk and tell them you’re interested in buying some art. I personally have nothing to do with art sales, so you’ll probably need to speak with Dave Deily.
All proceeds benefit the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild.
And for those who like to do their shopping in person, I’ll be selling pots at the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild holiday arts sale on December 3-5 (35% of all sales go to support youth arts programming): http://www.guerreroceramics.com
