moving and groovin...

taking a quick break in working here, been filling up the table with pots pretty steady for the last five hours, will have a full kiln load by tomm. morning. the first glaze kiln will be ready to unload by then, and it is round two before my show this week. on the employee tip, i had let him go, he was a no call no show teo days in a row. it is better, he was looking for something full-time anyways. so now i have an artist who comes up from greensboro on the weekends to work as assistant manager of the farmer;s market, to help me. i will train her in the slipcasting method the weekend after next and she will work six hrs a weekend. this works out better, since art is her dedication, while the other guy just needed work. she also has some clay experience. to top it off we are trying to get a two person show at a gallery in greensboro, so this will be good for us to co-ordinate our work. she is a painter, and i look forward to working with her. i told yall, that once i opened the employee door, that was it. and i mean it, i have set up my work to incorporate an assistant., so that i can raise my income ceiling. raise the roof yo. here is a clip of me and some friends at an auction. it is the real deal. i ain't telling you where it is at. i want to do a documentary on this family, they are off the hook. in this clip, towards the end of the sale, everything gets real cheap..like two dollars cheap..my artist friend, chrissie is bidding on a poem magnet(they think it is a picture frame), and little did she know she bought the whole table!. she does awesome mixed media paper clay sculpture with found objects, which she gets from here..she was the one who turned me on to the auction, she has been going for over twenty years...
