(pottery by Gary Rith)
Ever had a day filled with unexpected warm fuzzies..followed by more warm fuzzies?
The last 4 years I have been asked to consider joining a groovy coop down the road, and have not gotten around to it....several members REALLY pressed it in July. They said such nice things! I finally went down to meet up with members and the director and get papers and show what I have and see the gallery...they were SO NICE to me, I am fortunate....this is gonna be a lot of fun, let me tell you more about it later. This is the sampling of 12 items I brought to represent myself. I was like, to the wife
"here is 12, I want to bring 8, which ones???" and she is like
"BRING THE 12" which worked out well....
THEN after that rather friendly and supportive meeting I get home? And the newspaper wants to interview me!
I talk to an editor and we have a rollicking fun conversation.
I talk to a reporter (who is typing furiously) and it is rollicking good fun...and since the contact came through my website (and suggested by other potters) they are saying nice things about my work....
It is an article about Ithaca's pottery scene, so, I am, if included (she did say "wait, I want to be sure I got that quote correct" and "OOOOH! i love your teapots!") amongst many other potters.
As we closed the reporter said, with delight, "oh! you have a blog!!!" and I was like
"help yourself to any pictures" and she is like
"the newspaper would send over a photographer" and I was like, to myself "oh really???"
although who knows if it will come out next week, or includes me, we shall see :)

Congratulations to you! Warm, fuzzy days are ice cream.
I'm really liking the bottom mugs. Color, form, crittur...all there!
Congratulations. I you gotta love days like that.
You deserve it...both warm fuzzy sources. Do let us see that article when it comes out!
Excellent and well deserved. I know that the 12 pieces you selected are a good representation of your work because I'm looking at the photo thinking, "ooh, I want that pot, and that teapot, and that bowl..."
Gary's customers and blog readers know he is awesome. Now the world will know too!
woo-hoo for you! we are happy to be part of the co-op in our town. we don't always make a lot of money, but it drives business to our own gallery... and I enjoy working their a few times a month.
The warm fuzzies are the best. Congrats to you; good stuff!
