COVID-19 UPDATE (03-20-2020): My Annual Home Show would have been scheduled for early April, but given the special circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will take place online. To learn more details about the Home Show, please follow me on InstaGram to hear when the Show is scheduled and how you can purchase items.
What you need to know about my Annual Home Show
What are the pots I take home with me? Sometimes, they're test pieces, either in form, glaze, or both. I might want to live with something for a while before deciding if I want to produce it for my body of work. Or maybe I did a range of tests for a client, and ended up with a handful of plates/bowls/cups that were not selected, and that don't fit in with other pieces in my collection. Sometimes a piece comes out of the kiln that is just so sweet, I don't want to part with it, so I don't (at least not right away). Very seldom, a piece will have a minute technical issue - maybe a bit of glaze crawled away from the rim, or maybe an attachment shows the faintest sign of separation. The functionality and beauty of the piece are not compromised, but they do not pass the integrity test to be sold in the gallery, so they come home.
Most often, as these pieces collect, they become gifts to visiting friends or relatives. Even with that, about once a year I find my cupboards jam packed and shelves sagging, and the time comes to find new homes for these lovelies that have stood the test of daily use and are ready to go to a forever home. Yes, I've just been fostering these pots, and the Annual Home Show is basically an adoption event.
Prices will vary, based on the age, uniqueness, or even cherished status of the pot. If you follow and collect my work, this is a unique opportunity to shop MY favorites.
Advance notice will be given to my collectors, and then slightly shorter notice will pop up on InstaGram, with Show details appearing in my IG story. I do not pull work from my main gallery (at The Village Potters in Asheville) for this sale, so if you're looking for anything you might find there, you should go there or contact the gallery. Because this is a one-day show with a limited amount of inventory, I cannot support phone-buys. If you are not in the Asheville area, but know someone who can come and shop for you, that's totally fine - I just won't have the time to deal with that separately during the short duration of the show. If you'd like to know when the next Home Sale happens and you're not already one of my collectors, follow me on InstaGram!
