(Fark)   Any chance we can have a Farketplace Thank You thread? An item was delivered today and I am just blown away by how beautiful it is. Also, Fark might need a badass tag because this sh*t's badass   (fark.com) divider line

A reminder that this year's Farketplace thread can be found here, and that there's still time to shop.

Can comments be opened back up or are there "rules" that can't be overcome?

I've reopened that thread for comments, and greened this thread, so people can comment in either place.

Thank you very much, moderator admin person.

They're not here yet so I ain't naming them, but there's a potter who was reluctant to lose anonymity - it took some encouragement.

Visit the Farketplace thread, check for this Farker's work, and go buy their stuff. Their work is absolutely stunning and the pictures they posted didn't do their work justice.

I just wanted to give a huge thank you to everyone out there who is supporting all of us small artists, artisans, makers, and creators by buying our work. For those of us who have relied on actual marketplaces for our income, the last few years have been a wild ride, to say the least. I just got back from setting up my last holiday market space for the year, and it was amazing to see all the other vendors out there still going strong. And the only reason we're all still here and doing it is because people in our communities, no matter how big or small, appreciate what we do and are willing to go out of the way to shop with us.

You rock.

Telephone Sanitizer Second Class: I just wanted to give a huge thank you to everyone out there who is supporting all of us small artists, artisans, makers, and creators by buying our work.


Seconded on behalf of Mrs. Heb, who is incredibly grateful for the interest, love, and support from you FARKers.

When you have as little income as we currently do, even the smallest purchase means so much -- and that's not even taking into account the joy it brings both of us to know that something she worked so long designing and seeing through to completion is loved and appreciated by someone else.

Your purchases have truly inspired her, and she's in the process of restocking her shop, with new items going up ASAP. It makes me happy to see her so happy, and a lot of that is thanks to you.

Please see my post in the original thread if you're interested in checking the new stuff out. Either way, again, thank you so much.

Thank you!

These goblets resulted from a sort of commission.  I don't do commissions, as a rule, but a friend of one of my gallery managers (a very nice person who has been helpful to me) wanted a pair of goblets for a wedding gift.  I agreed to try, as long as I could make what I wanted.  If she liked them and my price, she could buy them.  If not, no hard feelings,.

I made three, because you never know. But I was lucky and they all survived the fire.  The friend grabbed two of them and Mrs. knobmaker confiscated the last one. I probably won't get to make any more until spring (my kiln is outside and the snow gets deep here.)  But I liked them well enough that they are one of the main directions I seem to be going.

Those are fantastic.

Hawkins : I've got it! I've got it! The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true! Right?
Griselda : Right. But there's been a change: they broke the chalice from the palace!
Hawkins : They *broke* the chalice from the palace?
Griselda : And replaced it with a flagon.
Hawkins : A flagon...?
Griselda : With the figure of a dragon.
Hawkins : Flagon with a dragon.
Griselda : Right.
Hawkins : But did you put the pellet with the poison in the vessel with the pestle?
Griselda : No! The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon! The vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true!
Hawkins : The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon; the vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true.
Griselda : Just remember that.
