You sure are pushing those bowls out Osuss, are they gifts or sale items?.

Some of both. I havent actually sold any yet, been working on improving my skills and debating (with myself) how I want to approach sales.

Nice work. I do craft shows regularly and my experience is that the turners putting out pieces like yours get a lot of attention. I’ve never discussed sales with any of them, but generally when people are milling around a tent and talking with the vendor at length, sales do happen.

The craft show side of my work is very profitable and a good filler for in between bigger contracts. It’s all about branding and how you present your work.

I’d be happy to put our differences aside and offer any advice I can for you to get started in what will likely be a good money making venture.
