I just found out that sales of the card set at NCECA have been great. Here's one of the cards.

Trading Cards

a sampling of the
fronts of the cards

Just in time for the first pitch...well, pretty close....here's a great little project that I am lucky to be part of. Lucky, as in, "coach" put me in to pinch hit in the bottom of the ninth. [Even when I played ball in little league I was second string. :-)] This set of 33 full color trading cards of potters you may or may not know will benefit the Studio Potter Magazine and can be yours for the mere price of $23! If you're in Phoenix and NCECA you can stop by the Studio Potter booth at NCECA and pick up a set. I'm not sure how many they printed, but I'd say that you'd better get yours, soon. If you're not at NCECA, then you can get a set from Simon Levin, here.

As a kid, (huh, right, probably till I was in college), I collected baseball cards, and still have my collection! So I was thrilled when I got the call. My heroes used to be ball players, but for a long time now, they've been potters. So all of this has come full circle.

some of the backs

I'll try to share more of my favorites after I get permission from the "coach".

But How Does She Stay So Clean?

Stacey Lane, potter?

I found Stacey sneaking up to the shop early this morning to work on her pots. If I'd known she could turn like this I'd a handed over my Shimpo a long time ago. Why didn't she just ask?

Actually, Stacey helped set up the shot for my 2009 Mill Creek Baseball Card! This year's set will benefit The Studio Potter magazine. I'll fill you in on the details as we get closer to the unveiling of the whole set, which will be available at NCECA in Phoenix, AZ.

I hope Stacey won't hesitate to come up to the shop for more collaborations, wink, wink, nod, nod, say no more!
