ACC Baltimore Ponderings

It’s official, I have successfully completed my 2014 wholesale shows. Now that I am back, safely nestled into the comforts of home in Asheville, I can appreciate how much my thinking has changed in the past few weeks. I saw so many beautiful works of art, objects that are truly original and push boundaries of what american craft is. I saw so many younger artists, trying out shows, and new work, and new ideas for…

Back from the Buyer’s Market

I am back from the Buyer’s Market! I have had a few days to ponder the experience, which was a wonderful one. I am left feeling appreciative of the fact that Symbology by Alice Scott is very much a group effort. So many friends contributed crossed fingers for me, one of my favorite galleries, Desert Moon Designs, offered a million track lights. My studio mate amber even had me borrow her wool leggings to make…

Thoughts on Living Joyfully

Last night I finished up doing the Indie Craft Parade in Greenville, SC. It was the most fun I’ve ever had at a show, and made me realize I’ve been doing things a little bit wrong. Most shows I go to are filled with artists who have been doing shows for many years. They are old pros, they have making the same things for a long time. They are making things that they know will…

Thank you Lexington

I got back from the AFB Woodland Park show in Lexington, KY this past weekend. I have been thinking all week about about how wonderful it was. It was so nice to feel the electricity in the air, the excitement on Saturday morning, as customers rushed to be the first ones to see everything. One of my favorite interactions was meeting Nick Mullins. He and his lady friend live in Lexington. He just graduated with…
