Art Mart 2010

November 30, 2010

The Workspace’s Annual Art Mart Sale will be held this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the M-Shop in the ISU Memorial Union. Items for sale include pottery, jewelry, baskets, prints. As always, there will also be LOTS of glass for sale from the ISU Gaffers’ Guild.

At least twice a year the Gaffers’ Guild has a big sale. Members are expected to donate about half the pieces they make to these sales so that we can afford to keep the studio running. After being in the club for four years, I really look forward to these sales. I have glass vases, bowls and paperweights scattered all over the house. Its nice to look around, take inventory of what I’ve made, and see how much I’m improving. I always hold on to my favorite pieces, but what I contribute to the sale gets better year after year. This time I gathered up a pretty nice assortment – old and new, colorful and clear, good and lopsided. I’ve made room in the house so that I can fill it up all over again!

Here’s a selection from my current contribution:

That would be my signature in case you want to check pieces for authenticity ;)

So if you’re going to be in Ames later this week, please come to the Art Mart Sale! And don’t wait till the last minute, because the good stuff goes fast.

Thursday, December 2 from noon – 5pm
Friday, December 3 from noon – 7pm
Saturday, December 4 from 10am – noon
