Roses, Mostly

My most popular canes – cane and bead sales wise – are always the roses. So this weekends production was mostly roses and black & white canes, which I posted yesterday.

The less monochromatic bunch are here:

Some of these are refills on what’s sold out of my web shop, the rest will appear in there this evening. And some lovely sets will be available in the Claychicks Boutique beginning next week!

Year of Clay – Black & White Canes

I like the stark and simple look of items made with only two colours. It gives you the chance to work on form and function more than colour schemes. The emphasis is centered on the design.

This even extends to making black and white canes – which is some of what I did this week like these:

I did make other canes. It’s an addiction I tell you, once I start, it is hard to stop! I’ll pop the pictures of those up tomorrow, I’m guessing.

Year of Clay – Monochromatic Bowls

This weekend was my final craft sale of the season and I have to say it did pretty well! The weather was nice, the show was upbeat and well organized and I am beginning to get the hang of the small booth setups. I made well into the Happy Range of 8-10x the booth fee and if the show comes back at the same weekend would happily give it another go, as it runs a little after most of the big clog of them.

I’m fascinated by vessels, particularly the mini ones and the little glass bowls that I cover and turn into decorative ring bowls or pill dishes or what not are often my most popular sellers. Last show, I ran out of them by lunch, except one cheerful bright coloured one. This show? I have the monochromatic ones left! The brightly coloured ones went fast.

Other shows I have had them trickle out one by one and the last few, people just scooped up several at a time.

It just goes to show that each show is a little different.
