Give Me My Props

Happy Halloween Everyone.

It's time to make more soap and sponge holders.  They are a continual seller so I make them throughout the year but around this time of year I start stocking up on them.  I do this not just because the holidays are coming and people like to give them as gifts but because I'm going to be in the Decatur Holiday Marketplace sharing a room with my friend Marci Scharko who makes Turnrow soaps.  We both put out these soap holders with her soaps in them and people see the instant gift potential.  We both do well.

During the rest of the year I display them with a bright and happy sponge (it travels well) but they don't sell as well.  I suspect it's because a pleasantly scented, handcrafted soap conjures up the idea of a long, luxurious bath or a hot, steamy shower, the sponge makes us think about washing the dishes.

It's the same piece, it can be used either way, buy two, one for the kitchen and one for the bathroom -they really are not expensive.  It's simply that when the really nice soap is used to convey the use of the pot people flock to them.

What props do you use or like to see when looking at pottery?

Pricing Art That Is On Scholarship

Last week we had a lively discussion about what to do when customers request a discount.  In the discussion Michael Kline mentioned a phrase that Mark Shapiro coined for "Those pieces can't be sold for enough money to cover the time and attention one gives, yet are valid to bring to the marketplace."  The phrase is "On Scholarship."  Which is a term I love because it says so much with so little.

About a year ago a customer contacted me and asked me to make him a shaving scuttle.  He described what he wanted the piece to do (keep his shaving soap warm) and what sort of sizes he needed for things like the brush holder.  He was happy with the piece and later contacted me again to design a razor holder for him.  Once more, we discussed his needs and I created the piece for him.

I enjoyed the challenge of creating a new design, I really like bringing that engineering into my art and I was honored that he liked my work enough to request not just one piece but two.  The thing is, I could not charge him what they cost to make.  I had to sell them at a loss because I spent time working out the pieces and the process of making and glazing them.  These pieces were sold on scholarship.  I had to figure out a fair price for the pieces (fair to me and to the customer) based on how much time and matterials I would use if I produced many more of these pieces.

I suspect all potters have a few of these pieces in their lives.  Either a customer asks for something or we challenge ourselves.  The thing is, we have to take into consideration that we can not always ask for the time spent in designing these pieces, that's part of the education process and it's not fair to charge one customer to foot the bill for the entire education unless we know this is strictly a "one of" piece and we will never make another like this again.

What pieces do you have on scholarship.

Meatless Monday - Cauliflower Gratin


The best recipes are the ones that are easy to follow, take very little time to prepare and yield delicious results.  These are the ones that you'll make many times because they are such a pleasure to make and eat.  This recipe is one of those.  I think you'll love it.  We loved it so much I forgot to take a picture of it.

Lidded casserole dish by Future Relics
Carved, Covered Casserole


Ingredients:


  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 med onion, sliced thin
  • 2 - 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tsp fresh oregano
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1 15oz can of diced tomatoes or equivalent of fresh tomatoes
  • 1 tsp honey
  • tablespoon capers
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large cauliflower broken into florets
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 4 oz crumbled feta
  • Finely chopped parsley for garnish

Directions:

Lightly oil a 2 quart casserole dish and set aside.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat then add the oil, onion, garlic, oregano, and cinnamon.  Cook for about 5 minutes until the onion is softened.  Add the tomatoes and cook 7 minutes more, now add the honey and capers.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Transfer the mixture to the casserole dish.

Steam the cauliflower for 5 minutes.  Set it on the sauce and season with a little more salt and pepper if desired.  Pour the lemon juice over the cauliflower and add the feta. Place in the oven about 5 - 6 inches below the broiler then turn on the broiler.  Heat until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is beginning to brown (start checking after about 10 minutes).  Garnish with parsley and serve.

If you are preparing the gratin ahead of time (say, for a pot luck dinner), you can bake covered at 400 degrees F. for 20 minutes then brown it under the broiler.

Volume Discounts?

A woman was walking by the booth on Sunday and saw a mug that she liked so she showed the mug to her mother, the mother liked it and picked up one with a similar, but very different glaze pattern.  I told them about the mugs and they seemed very happy and ready to buy.  Then it came, the question we all love to hear, "would you give me a discount if I buy two?"

Please understand that this show was in an affluent area of the city which normally means that a lot of people who go to the festival are looking for a deal and ask for a discount.  Truly the majority of people were out enjoying the nice weather and the really great art.  They were looking for gifts for themselves or a loved one, and they were glad to support local artists.  But their were an awful lot of bargain hunters in the mix and I was tired of them.  Frankly, I put a lot of thought into my pricing and it's insulting when someone thinks that buying 2 items gives them the right to ask for a volume discount.

Striped Mugs

I should have explained to her the extra time that goes into creating a striped mug.  This was not striped with layering but with tape and wax resists.  $25 was really a low price considering the time I'd put into them.  I don't know if it would have mattered but instead I asked why she thought they were overpriced.  Naturally she got mad and told me that she never pays more than $20 for a mug before she stormed off.  A few minutes later another couple of women came over, quickly found a mug they liked and were happy to give me the $35 I was asking for it.

I know this is a long and well discussed topic amongst people who do art festivals.  Someone once told me that people feel good when they find a sale or negotiate a deal so I should price accordingly.  Well, doesn't that hurt the people that are respectful of my prices and don't haggle?  They really are the vast majority of people who by my pots and I don't want to take advantage of them or scare them off with prices that are too high because I'm building in a sale price (that's what some department stores tend to do).

I'm considering making a sign that reads "$5 off if you don't ask for a discount."

Hot and Sour Soup

This is a cool weather favorite, especially if you have a cold.  The heat from the soup and the spices really help you to breathe when you're a little stuffy.  The soup also tastes great.  It's traditionally a starter at Chinese restaurants but that doesn't mean that you can't make a meal out of it.  This recipe is full of stuff to make it a complete meal, plus it's a bit thicker that what I have found at restaurants.

I used organic, whole wheat asian noodles but I'm sure what ever you prefer would be fine.  Gluten free noodles should work well.  This recipe is vegan so all the animals are happy with it.



Ingredients:
  • 8-oz package of Asian noodles cooked according to instructions
  • 1 tbsp. sunflower or canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely minced or grated on a grate plate
  • 1/4 tsp. dried chili flakes (more if you want it hotter)
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, finely minced or grated on a grate plate 
  • 4 cups vegetable broth 
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper 
  • 2 tbsp. chinese black vinegar (available at your local Asian markets)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame oil 
  • 1/4 cup nappa cabbage, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh shiitake mushrooms, with hard stems removed
  • 1 carrot, sliced or julienned 
  • 2 medium green onions, finely chopped into rounds
  • 3-oz. tofu diced into 1/2-inch cubes, pressed (about 4-6 hours)
  • 3 tbsp. potato starch
  • 1/4 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 sprigs cilantro, rinsed, dried, leaves removed and chopped for garnish

Directions:


Boil the Asian noodles. After they are cooked, remove the noodles from the pot immediately and place them in a tray full of cold water and set aside.

In a large stock pot, heat oil, and sauté ginger & garlic on medium heat until fragrant. Add dried chili flakes. Add broth. Add pepper, Chinese black vinegar, sesame oil and soy sauce in it then heat stirring frequently for 2-3 minutes. Add all vegetables & tofu until vegetables are tender (usually about 8-10 minutes).

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, dissolve starch in 1/2 cup cold water and then add it to the soup while it is boiling. Stir continually to avoid lumps. Add bean sprouts. Stir and let it cook for about few minutes.

Place some cooked noodles in serving bowls. Add the soup and garnish with green onions and cilantro.

If you have any leftovers the noodles should be stored in a separate container from the soup or they will absorb all or most of the liquid.

Potter's Résumé and C.V.

Occasionally the merits of having and maintaining an artist résumé or curriculum vitae (C.V.) are discussed.  It's possible that very few people, artists or otherwise, enjoy working on these little, tiny views into who we are and what we do.  When I worked in the corporate world we were told a résumé should be no more than 2 pages and it should be arranged in a certain format.  Of course every time I did something noteworthy someone would comment about how it should go on my résumé, that usually meant that another, older, noteworthy achievement was squeezed out since I had to keep things down to two pages.  I also had occasion to read other people's résumés...yawn.

As artists we have, and should make a more exciting presentation of our professional history.  If you're applying to shows they often want to see or know that history.  To be honest and technical, a résumé and a C.V. are actually a little different in that a résumé is supposed to show work history and a C.V. shows the person's artistic achievements.  Sometimes these are not one in the same although some overlap may occur.  I have seen show applications where they ask for one or the other and I often wonder if the requester is asking for a résumé and not a C.V. for a particular reason.


A quick internet search on creative or artists résumé will show what some creative people have done to create interesting, exciting, and creative résumés.   Their are a couple on the site above that you can cut out and make into a box.  Those seem the most fun to me because the viewer can interact with them.  But what do we do as potters?

I think about the old urns that show stories as their decoration.  I can imagine decorating a pot with a sgraffito representation of my history as an artist and sending that to a show jury.  As fun as that may seem it's also impractical and I really do prefer to apply via email anyway.


Do you have a résumé and a C.V.?  Have you done anything especially creative with the layout?

Have you been to Mudcolony lately?

Glaze Happieness

Sometimes a new glaze, or a combination of two old familiar glazes can bring new excitement to a potter's work.  I've found that to be true with this combination of a chocolate brown glaze and Steven Hills Apricot.  It's fun how much depth and how many colors these two glazes in combination give this juicer.

It also breaks and pools really nicely.  Browns, blues, copper reds, apricots, and more.  Joy.

Juicer with Combo Glaze
Now I'm thinking about what other pieces I can make that would play with this glaze combination.  What would you make?

While I'm excited about this glaze I'm also excited about being part of the Brookhaven Arts Festival this weekend.  It looks like it's going to be a great show, it's the first time I've done this one.  I applied a few years ago but was not accepted.  I'm glad they thought my work was good enough this year.  It'll be nice to meet some new people and see some friends that live in that neighborhood.

I'm also making pots for another wood firing in November.  Stay tuned for that fun.

Meatless Monday - Rustic Potato and Roasted Garlic Soup with Kale

This is a delicious and easy potato soup recipe that is also quick to cook.  If you don't like kale you can try it with spinach, mustard greens, parsley, or leave out the greens altogether, they are optional.  This recipe is vegan.

I used two types of potatoes because the baking potatoes fall apart when they are boiled which adds a thickness to the soup.  The Russet pototoes hold together better for some substance.  I also left the skins on the potatoes because that is where much of the flavor and nutrition resides. For this reason it's best to use organic potatoes to avoid chemicals.  You could also peel the potatoes.

Potato Soup
Ingredients:


  • 3 tbls olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 pound Russet potatoes
  • 1 pound baking potatoes
  • 1 head of garlic, roasted
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Several leaves of kale or other green leafy vegetable (optional)
  • Red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)
Directions:

Roast the garlic (can be done a day or 2 a head):

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin but leave the skins of the cloves intact.  Cut 1/4 - 1/2 inch off the top of the bulb to expose the cloves.  Place in a garlic roaster and drizzle with some olive oil.  Bake for 30 - 35 minutes.  The cloves will feel soft.  Allow to cool to the touch or refrigerate and use in a day or two.

For the soup:

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a heavy soup pot over medium heat.  Add the onions and the bay leaves and cook them slowly.  While the onions are cooking quarter and slice the baking potato, quarter the Russets.

Add the potatoes to the pot then raise the heat, sauté, stirring frequently until the onions start to brown, about 10 minutes.  Don't worry if a glaze starts to build up on the pan, you want that for more flavor.  Add some salt and 1 cup of water.  Loosen the glaze and solids from the bottom of the pan by scraping then add 2 more quarts of water and bring to a boil.  Lower the heat and simmer, partially covered for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.  Remove the cloves of garlic from the skins by squeezing or using a cocktail fork, add them to the soup as it cooks. Meanwhile steam the greens for a few minutes then drain. Remove the bay leaves then process the soup until smooth using an emersion blender or carefully with a standing blender.  Add the kale. Ladle into soup bowls, top with red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese if desired.

Casseroles for Autumn

Their is a chill in the air this morning.  It's getting cooler at night and it's taking longer for the day to warm up.  Green leaves are quietly changing to yellow, ambers, and reds.  Autumn has arrived.  Each night that we are able to dine out on the deck I think it's going to be the last al fresco meal for a while.  I love to eat out side, do you?

My tastes flow with the seasons.  During warm seasons I dress lightly, eat lighter, fresher foods, even drink more white wine and light colored beers.  As the weather turns cooler, like now I head for red wines, darker beers, soups, and casseroles.

What's better than walking into a nice warm kitchen that holds the fragrance of a delicious dinner?  Well, besides opening up the kiln to a beautiful casserole.  Actually, the dinner may be better because you get to enjoy the casserole dish as well as the food it holds.

Freshly Thrown Casseroles

Expect to see some more casserole recipes on Meatless Mondays.

While you're thinking warm thoughts head over to Mudcolony, many of those bloggers are from Australia where it's spring.

Fixing An E-Z Up Festival Tent

The tent trusses broke after the last show. It was my fault and it was my problem. Of course I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a new tent. I also love this tent even though I'm envious of the newer e-z up tents with the velcro fastener on the sidewalls. Velcro is such a great invention. Mine have these loops that go over the trusses and connect to an oval bead. It's a pain in the neck and almost works. Other than that, I love my E-Z Up.

I found a section for ordering replacement parts on E-Z Up's website and found the model of tent I had without too much difficulty.  When you go to the webpage you'll see a diagram that would be helpful if it were larger or otherwise more clear but it worked for me to identify which parts needed to be replaced and then order them.  They do have a toll free number that I could have called if I was really uncertain about my order.


As you can see I had several breaks, two of the outer trusses had bent and broken.  Thankfully it was only the metal parts that needed to be replaced.

The new parts were sent promptly.  Yay.  It would have been nice to have some instructions as to how to reassemble the pieces but they were not there.  However, I'm a potter, I repair kilns and such.  I can do this.  If I had the original assembly instructions that might have helped also. So I tried to take pictures of the process but they didn't look helpful.  Essentially, after removing the canvas, I simply replaced the trusses one at a time, broken for good, move on to the next.  I did this with the tent loosely closed but standing up for easy access to the nuts and bolts.  I had all four trusses replaced in under an hour without rushing.

New Tent Trusses
It was a pretty easy and straightforward task.  I'm so happy it went well and that E-Z Up offers the replacement parts.  That's a huge cost saver.

Now I want to wash the canvas top but I'm a bit worried about doing so.  It's done such a wonderful job of keeping water off of me when it rains and I'd hate to do anything that would change that but it is getting a bit grungy looking.  Have you cleaned yours?  How and did it work well?

Meatless Monday - Spaghetti Squash Primavera

Have you tried spaghetti squash?  It's terrific, it has many of the properties of spaghetti with a lighter, fresher taste because it's a vegetable.  Of course it's gluten free for the same reason.  So if you can't eat pasta you might want to try spaghetti squash in some of your favorite pasta recipes.  Also, it's really easy to cook in the microwave.

Vegetable Primavera recipe by Future Relics Gallery
Spaghetti Squash Primavera
Ingredients: 

  • 2 1/2 pounds uncooked spaghetti squash
  •  2 tsp olive oil 
  •  1 small uncooked onion, chopped 
  •  4 cloves garlic, minced 
  •  1/2 cup uncooked broccoli, florets 
  •  1/4 cup yellow peppers, chopped 
  •  1/4 cup sweet red pepper, chopped 
  •  1/4 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  •  1 Tbls tomato paste 
  •  3/4 cup(s) water 
  •  2 Tbsp basil, fresh, chopped
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)
Directions:

In a large skillet heat oil then sauté the onion and garlic for 1 minute.  Add broccoli and peppers, sauté for about 3 - 4 minutes until they are crisp tender.

Stir in the tomato paste and water, simmer until the veggies are tender, about 5 - 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut the top off the spaghetti squash then cut it in half lengthwise.  Scoop the seeds out of the center then fill that cavity with water.  Put the 2 halves of the squash back together and sit inside the microwave, cook for 5 - 8 minutes depending on the size of the squash.  The inside will be tender when it's done.  Pour out any remaining water then rake a fork through the squash to make spaghetti like strings.

When the vegetables have cooked for 5 - 8 minutes stir in the sliced tomatoes and basil, simmer for 1 more minute.

Place the primavera vegetables into the squash shell, garnish with parmesan cheese if desired and serve.

Since the food all stays in the squash shell clean-up is a breeze.

Potter's Party

Janet loves to entertain.  For her that includes cooking for our guests and since she's an amazing cook people like to come here and enjoy her food.  My birthday party this weekend was no exception.  She cooked and baked her little heart out then set out a fantastic spread for our guests.  I don't believe anyone went home hungry.

While we were preparing for our guests to arrive I walked into the kitchen and noticed a list.  I assumed it was a "honey-do" list and started reading it.  It wasn't a list of chores but of food that we were going to serve and who made the pot we were going to serve it in.  How many do you recognize?

We do collect lots of other potters work.  A meal or a party at our house is not only an experience of culinary delight but of art appreciation also.  This is only a sample of what we had, the rest of the room had plates of cookies and cakes decorating it.

Thanks again to everyone who sent happy birthday wishes my way.

It's time to read the other blogs on my blog roll and then head over to Mudcolony to see what's happening there.  Join me?

Hambidge Invitational Show of Pottery and Handmade Objects

In the beautiful mountains of North Georgia sits an artist haven.  It was established in 1934 by Mary Hambidge in memory of her husband Jay Hambidge who was an artist.  Mary Hambidge was a weaver so the center started out as a place for the application women to create exceptional weavings that have been featured in exhibits at the Smithsonian and MOMA to name but a few.  It has grown into an artist residency center that offers artists an extended stay in a peaceful and beautiful setting that should be very inspirational.  As a residency center they have to find ways of raising funds and selling artwork seems the most logical.  They hold a few shows each year in the Weave Shed Gallery and I have been fortunate enough to have been invited to participate in this years Invitational Show of Pottery and Handmade Objects.

I got to go up there on Friday and preview the show and it is amazing.  I was concerned about how they were going to fit works from over 80 artists in the gallery.  It's a pretty good size space but it's not a huge hall.  Of course they are experts and know how to set up shelves and tables to make everything work seamlessly.  They also opened up a room that is near the front entrance that had previously been used for other things.  They are calling it the west wing.  It's got ample natural light from windows that surround the room and plenty of places for pottery and other art.  I was told they will be keeping that room open going forward.  I think it's a great idea.

The show runs from September 28th through November 23, 2013 during the galleries regular hours of 10am to 5pm Tuesday through Saturday.  The show coincides with The Great Artdoors Festival which is a really fun event with open studio tours and artists talks, dance and music performances, raku firings that you can participate in, an old fashioned pig roast, native plant sale, and, of course, lots of art.
