The 2 HOUR BOWL!!!
NO, I did not complete this NE Maple bowl in two hours.
I finished it late Friday evening and took it to the Saturday morning market.
Attachment 47649 Maple NE 12" Dia X 8" tall.
It was tha last piece I set out, after showing it to a potter friend. Time 8 AM. At 10:00 AM a previous customer stopped by. They have a black Lab who happens to like beggin strips(I give a treat to well mannered dogs at the market). While I was feeding "James" and giving him his ration of bellyrub and lovin'. The wife called over and asked if potpurie(SP) oil would hurt the finish.
I said no and the husband said "Put a sold sign on it. We'll bring a check next week - tomorrow.
It lasted two hours before it sold. A record for me.
