Website Update

I had an idea to create a "bargain" page on my new website, because I have so many pots that for whatever reason just don't belong displayed with my larger body of work: some are seconds, some are class demos, some are the by-products of sketching three dimensionally; and some have just been kicking around too long and I am tired of looking at them. I just finished posting the first item to it today. Boy is that a fiddly pain in the ass! I guess I've been spoiled by blogger. I assume I will get better at it, at least I hope so; because as things stand I just spent half the day to create a listing that, if successful, will net me about enough for a six of Smirnoff Ice.

If you feel like testing out links for me, check it out here: www.finemesspottery.com.
Click "Shop," and then "bargains" at the bottom of the page. If you click on the image of the soda bottle, it expands to a listing with a Paypal button.

The hyper-focus aspect of my attention deficit disorder is in full swing, so I may be in web-building mode for a while. Fiddly pain in the ass it may be but it's always fun to learn something new.

Gary has been selling my seconds (well what I call my seconds which are just pieces I need to move forward from) at local flea markets; I need to make room for more recent work and taking photos for a pittance received is just too much for me to get my head around. Good luck to you.

Hi Linda -- In the summer I sell mine in a kind of perpetual yardsale, but that doesn't work as well in January. Shooting the photos doesn't bother me much, as once I set up, it's no more difficult to shoot 20 items as it is to shoot 10.
I assume I'll get better and faster at posting the web pages. If not, well, summer always comes around again.

The links seem to work fine but I don't really like the tiled background. It strikes me as being a bit too busy or something. I'm not exactly sure why it bothers me so ask some other people, it might just be my aesthetic, otherwise I think the bargain area is a great idea.

Hi Lori -- The tiles will eventually have clickable images in them, so they will make more sense.
