We've survived!! Two days at least . . .

And so, after the weeks of working, trimming, bisquing, waxing, glazing, firing, cleaning, pricing, packing, driving and setting up, we've survived 2 days of the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, and are in the home stretch. We've had a wonderful time meeting new customers and seeing some familiar faces, some customers who have been buying my fathers work since he first did the show, back in the 80's!!! Knowing that there are people who still cherish and love my fathers work really makes him proud and this whole ordeal worthwhile.

Here are some pictures of my work being set up and displayed, you'll notice the scapes, berries and strawberries from the garden in case I get hungry :)

 

If you have time, come on by tomorrow on our final day, we're at booths H13 and H15. A lot of our prized work has sold, my fathers large teapots are almost gone, and I even found a wonderful home for my beach elephant bowl (the one with the blue water), but we do have a lot of other work we are proud of, and would just love to catch up :) The end is in sight, I can't wait to sleep in and catch up on all the rest I've been missing :) Hoping everyone who saw the show had a wonderful time, thank you

One firing and one week away from the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition

So, in one week's time, my father Joseph, my girlfriend Ayano and I, will all be at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, at Nathan Phillip's Square, July 4th, 5th and 6th. We are busy rushing to have one more firing this Sunday, just in the nick of time before the show, so please come by if you're downtown, stop in for a chat and see our latest work :) We will be at booths H13 and H15, side by side. To see all the other amazing artists at the show, check out http://www.torontooutdoorart.org/ 

 

And if you are in the Simcoe/Norfolk area, I am also participating in the "40 below" exhibition at the Norfolk Arts Center, which showcases 40 young artists from the Norfolk area. The exhibit opens on July 12th, and the opening gala is on the 18th. http://www.norfolkartscentre.ca/events.php
