was open all week and Cat took time out of her day job to receive
visitors and make some pots.
Cat's studio had over 130 visitors during the course of the week -
not bad considering that the weather was atrocious at best!
display of pots was assembled on an old card table and put outside
the door in an attempt to entice passers by into the studio. It was
a successful device, but it got very wet during the regular showers.
probably half of the visitors were passing trade; the rest had come
along because they were following the Art Map trail. Some had even
taken the trouble to visit Cat's website beforehand. Most visitors
were happy to stay and chat for a while and some made several visits.
the opportunity to hand out details of the Blue
Room exhibition (which was still running) and direct visitors
to the Quay Arts Centre and its shop
which sells Cat's pots. Some of the visitors recognised Cat's work
and had already bought some of her domestic ware for gifts or use
although tiring, was great fun. Cat sold several of her pots including
one which is still being made!
