OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND!



OK, people will be arriving fairly soon, and I am getting close to ready. Gorgeous day, just gorgeous!


Dteamt I was swimming underwater behind a submarine but then it went REALLY deep so I turned back to shore--I couldn't get up to the surface of the water and I needed air--some kind of storm or something, I just couldn't get up, BUT then I didn't give up I realized that if I went toward shore I would be able to stand up in the shallows...and that is what I did.
Thinking about this rather horrible dream I realized that sometimes maybe if you keep trying to solve a problem one way, you might simply have to try another approach..... and it will work.

OMG you didn't mention there were ELEPHANT BOWLS!! SO cute. Just got my puppies today. Everything was GORGEOUS and the bank made the hubby giggle. It was a present for him :) The check is in the mail on Monday.

Thank you :)

If I were standing in that room right now? I'd be certain that I'd died and gone to Heaven.

Don't sell the piggy bank. It's being awarded later today!!!

What a dream! Are you sure it wasn't just Maude with a hand over your face tring to make you stop snoring? ;-)
And here's wishing you a complete sell out, Gary.
I think what catches my eye the most is the tall covered vase (?) ib the right side of the second shelf in the lower picture. Purple and blue with white foot and finial. BEAutiful!No, stunningly beautiful.

Gary, good luck today, it looks wonderful in your studio!

Catching up, I love the Pumpkin glaze on the tea set below. The Swedish Chef is my favorite! And of course, pictures of Penny are always great. Love the CA t-shirts!

Gary ~ one of the things I love about you is how you use musical quotes. I just caught "lovie dovie all the time" over on the sidebar. :)

Hey, while naturally I'm hoping that you sell all those goodies... are you gonna put anything that is left up on your etsy page?

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

Did you sell those cow bowls? The cutie ones with the spots? Did you? or the sweeeeet [my all time fave of tea sets] light green piggie tea pot and cup set?


If you didn't? Then you are slummin' the shoppers.

They should shame themselves.

oooooh, any cow over the moon mugs? I know those went!!!!!

Happy Sellin' Saturday!

Rock the Shop Big G!

Farmer*swife said...

Yeah. It just came to me? but, you are now? The "Big G"!

Not to be confused with the Big Cheese. Cuz' that's quite different. But, you rock the pot-tery, LOL!

Mega-Bucks to ya'! Big G!!!!

Hope it went well today! Those animal bowls are brilliant, they make me smile every time I look at them - particularly like the cow ones.

Linda Starr said...

Wow, you have lots of wonderful pots in your studio, hope all went well today.

Giggles said...

Everything Looks amazing Gary!! My best friend would love those elephant bowls....

As for the dream, water is emotions. I am not surprised that you had that dream last night. There are a lot of emotions riding on a show like this. It's exposing your soul....Water dreams are very telling!!

Good luck again!! Have fun too!
Hugs Giggles

I got my longhorn sugar bowl in the mail and it's fabulous! And a darling wee pot as a bonus. LOVE them both! I will post photos soon.

Wandered over here by way of Blog This Mom! I lived in Ithaca in the 80's - beautiful, beautiful place. I miss those sunsets.

Michelle said...

The studio looks great!

About your dream and not being able to get air...last time I had a dream similar to that, it turned out the cat was sleeping on my face. Did you have a close encounter with Emily or Spike?

Tricia said...

Wow! Look at all the gorgeous pieces.

I received my tea pot and it's beautiful. It's even nicer in real life than it was in the photo. I can't wait to give it to my sister. It's a gift for her. AND I love the little blue vase. THANK YOU!!!

Hilary said...

Wow.. looking good. Best of luck to you. I hope you get some time to enjoy this beautiful weather.
