    Just showing off

    There's a new art gallery in town, actually in a neighboring town, but a friend gave them my name and website, they looked and called me to see if I wanted to put some things in there on consignment... I don't usually like to do consignment, but I met with the owner and decided to take a chance... she's quite the artist (painter) in her own right and had a nice gallery.... she's moving the gallery to a little town about 30 miles from me that has turned into quite a nice little art and antique community... we'll see how it goes... These are a few of the pieces I've put in her shop....

    These are some of my urns ... the hackberry one has a pvc fitting so the lid will screw on, but the others are all just fitted lids that will require gluing down once the urns are filled.

    She also wanted some of my glasses also, so gave her these.

    I also put some bowls and my collection of bottle stoppers with her.... she want a big kaleidoscope for the shop, so I'm looking into making one in the near future... I have the mirrors, but need to do some design work before I can finish one.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Nice turnings and great to have a new outlet. Is the commission ok? Around here 25% to 30% is the going rate.

    She was asking 30% - which I can easily absorb or build into my pricing.
