last day of 2009

wow, I can't believe today is the last day of 2009
This morning I was talking with Noelle and
we were thinking what we have done this year.
And I started to think...

(made in Feb.09)

well... this is the year that I really focus on pottery
last year this time I quit Leslie and decided to work on my art more

(made in May.09)

and I am kind of proud of what I archived this year,
I did couple craft fair and shows
also I found out I really love teaching.

(made in July.09)

I know it's a long way to become a ass kicking artist potter
but I know I want to be one so I will keep working.

(made in Aug.09)

I want to thank everyone that bought my piece this year (or any time)
every time when I sold a piece I feel someone is appreciate what I do.
(made in Oct.09)

So thank you who ever you are!! and I wish everyone have a great new year coming up!!!

Because whole weekend just playing and no work!!
Especially don't need to worry about shows and open studio, great :-)

I went to Takemi's open studio. He had a great set up for his pottery.
also I met Rokco!! He is Takemi's dog, so cute!!!

here are some photo of his work, and they are so nice and affordable!!
and I got a really nice vase!

after that me and Sara and Noelle went to the renegade craft fair in the city.
I bought some of the Christmas gift there, it's so cool!!

after the renegade, me and Noelle went to Compound gallery to check out the Holiday show

I just love their set up, I just love this gallery :-) everything is so cute!!

and that's not it!!

I also went to Ben and Sara's (different Sara) house for a music party.
I LOVE Sara's song, she is so great at making music!!

good times :-)

Wow, what a weekend...
Last weekend is our second weekend of open studio
also is my Bazaar Bizarre in San Francisco.
So I have to do the set up all without Jason's help ;-(
Lucky, I change my display so everything can fit in my car!!

And this is where we sale in San Francisco, it's really nice and warm inside
also we have DJ the whole time (he rocks!!)

So this is my set up! and I can hide behind the shelves :-p

And I am so lucky that I am vending with Chanda, she is the one help me with EVERYTHING!!!
she teach me everything about the show's and also help me during the show!

And here is Chanda's boyfriend Chris! He is totally my savior!!!
he will come and help me just with a phone call, also help me pack up my car!!!
They are the BEST!!! Thank god I have them :-)

well, the show have lots of people coming and look and I got lots of good feedback
but since my items are in higher price range so my days are kind of slow.
so most of time I just play with my ruby's cube and cell phone or draw...

anyway, the best thing about this kind of show is trading with other artist!!
This is Erin and her mom!! we trade our work!! I got the pillow that she is holding in the picture.
It's so cute, I love it! and when Jason saw it, he said it is a really good trade!!

Also I trade with Laura, she made some awesome jewelery. It's very sculpture!
I really like it a lot, when I have money, that's something that I want to buy...

so that's my weekend! It's a lot of work to do this kind of show, but it's also very rewarding because you get to talk to other artist and people who appreciate your work.

anyway, now I am just happy that I can relax and catching up play farmvile (facebook game...)

ps. I won't be here because I will be in city selling in bazaar bizarre. :-(

Saturday, December 5, 2009 damn cold....

Yesterday was the CAB+ show, It was a huge ceramist party!!
I had so much fun just to see all the cool artist and see cool works.
And here is our (me and Jason) set up, as you can see the background is bags of raw material
this show was in Leslie Ceramic's warehouse. Anyway, I had smile on my face whole night

The reason why is------------(drum roll please.....)
I made a trade with Christa Assada!! she wants to buy my plate.
I was so flatter!! She is one of the potter that I really admire!!
(there is Bob and Josie)

I also made a trade with Josie! And Bob Brady bought one of my plate too!!
that really mean something to me, people that I look up to recognize my work

(Chanda the panda :-) so cute!!)

for me that is priceless,
I know I still have long way to go to become a kick ass awesome potter
but I know will keep trying!!

(Noelle's cool set up)

Anyway, today we had our first day of open studio. It went really well.
Tomorrow we are going to have couple of our friends over to show with us.

(this is Joe and Rosa, they are just too cute)

I can't wait... because it's going to be fun :-)
so if you have time, stop by and hang out!!
