Pictures from the Ra'anana Pottery Fair




After many weeks of hard work, the potters' exhibition finally took place in a wonderful green park in the city of Ra'anana. It last 3 long days, from the noon to midnight.
It was the first time for me to participate in such a grand event. The challenge was exciting and so were the results. I got confident with each visitor who "only liked" the work, or loved it, or even bought it. I have got many new insights about colors, shapes, or kind of dishes people likes, or look for. With every bowl or other pots that were sold, I felt a mixture of happiness and sadness; after all, each of them is a precious piece of art for me, and like a painting I would like to know that they are going to a "good-house".









My sister Ilana tal, was responsible not only for the amazing table outfit, but also for the photos. Her support during the time of the exhibition, before and after is something I'd cherish forever.

To sum up, the fair was an amazing experience for me. I sold many of the pots, and that means lots of room for new comers. I am eager to start working again, but first I have to deal with moving to my new apartment in the city of Haifa on top of the Carmel mountain.


I take this opportunity to thanks all of you who took the time to congratulate me for the nomination of one of my plates, as the Plate #400 in Mignon's wonderful blog http://aplateaday.blogspot.com/

What a great show that looked to be, so glad your pottery was well received, I am not surprised as each is a piece of art as you say. Great to see all the photos, you have been busy for sure. Three days that was a marathon wasn't it, whew so nice your sister was there to help, that many days can be exhausting.

My dear Sharon, Shalom. You will not believe this, but I have just now found your response to my inquiry in April 2010, on my blog. I never knew I could find the responses in one place and missed your communication. I am so sorry to read of your illness, but it looks like your recovery has been challenging but your painting is beautiful. I would very much like to continue to follow you and to post your blog. on mine. I hope you will post mine on yours. Please respond and let me know how you are.

Refuah Shleymah,
