Annual San Diego Pottery Tour

Pierre, Merle, and Danae in front of Danae's studio
It was a big success ! One of my best shows this year. I am so thankful to be a part of this show. And everyone coming by the studio absolutely loved the idea of the pottery tour. Eleven locations spread around San Diego with 20+ potters. People had the leisure to plan their tour in two days. Some customers said they were starting on the East side and moving westward in a methodical fashion. Some were hopping around in a given area. Others had planned their trips based off the pictures on the gorgeous brochure designed by Richard Burkett or the related website,

It was an incredible opportunity to reach out to new people and promote our local ceramics community. I enjoy talking to my customers and explain my craft, tell them how I make my pieces, what inspires me, the troubles I run into and how I solve them. Danae told me I am very animated when I talk about pottery. All I can say is that pottery is a passion and it shows. My only wish is that I can pass it along.

So I am looking forward to next year. And maybe we'll have a special Mother's Day tour. It's always a popular time of year for art shows. Stay tuned !
