This past weekend, glazedOver Pottery was honored to have been the featured artist at Coming Home to Country, one of Sayville’s most charming Main Street gift boutiques. Mary, the proprietor, is such a kind and warm person and her shop is filled to the brim with unique, New England style treasures from nautical to primitive to whimsical. (I looked on, amused, as one customer, a newly in-love young man with his girl, purchased a rubber egg to toss at his friend as a gag!)
Mary and I spent the day greeting and meeting and we enjoyed a wonderful turn out. The weather was kind enough to cooperate—the rain showers that had been predicted never made even the hint of an appearance. It was an all around perfect day.
Before I arrived to set up, Mary had cleared off a tall display shelving unit for me to use and she gave me risers and other props to help set up everything. We hung my wind chimes above the display and they looked beautiful. I brought a couple of my own vintage milk crates and set them up in front of the shelves so that I could put my pendant necklace display on them and arrange other pottery inside them. It all came out looking so beautiful. Mary introduced me to each customer with a generous and admiring tone and I was greeted with warmth by everyone. It was a delight!
She had refreshments for everyone and she was terrific company. She helped me advertise my children’s ceramic class by spreading the word and handing out flyers. More than that, she convinced me to go ahead with my tentative plan for an adult ceramics class.
So it’s settled, then. I will be offering a five week Adult Ceramics class at the glazedOver studio:
Monday nights, from 7:00-8:30
beginning July 5th
If you would like to sign up, please email me at jill[at]glazingOver.com. We will learn hand building and wheel throwing techniques. I’m looking forward to it as much as to the children’s classes!
