Well, the second weekend of the Open House has ended. We had our private view on Saturday as well, which was great. I was lucky enough to have family and friends ready to part with cash to buy bowls and platters, which was also great - thank you family and friends!
Earlier in the day I managed to get this bowl completed, going from its unfinished state on the left to the finished one on the right.
I decided to try a colour in the bowl as well, which obviously spoke to someone, as it was the first thing I sold on Saturday. There is blue in the colours mixed on the rim and the bright blue in the bowl itself helps to bring this out.
There's been a huge jump in my Youtube subscribers as well, since Mike Waldt's shout out on Friday - about 90 new subscribers, more than doubling what I had previously! Thank you again, Mike - and thanks to all my subscribers, old and new! I've just posted my latest video as well, showing how I decorated this platter.
