After spending a number of very wet weekends promoting Pot-Easels during the summer it was very refreshing to take part in the Oxford Ceramics Show in the warmth of the refectory in the beautiful 19th century buildings of St Edwards School in Oxford.
This was our 3rd year at the show as a trade exhibitor although we have visited the exhibition on numerous occasions before-attracted by the warm and friendly Potter’s community and always coming away with more purchases than we should have!
This year was our best ever in terms of sales and the number of visitors to the stand which I hope reflects a more positive outlook to the economy and Studio Pottery in general. We continue to be very grateful for the support that the Potters and collectors have given to our project with many of the exhibitors using the Pot Easel to help promote their wares , encouraging their customers to find the way to the refectory and the Pot Easel stand!
The original standard size Pot Easel still continues to be the best seller but we have noticed a marked increase in the number of smaller shelf stands that are being sold. Since the launch 4-5 years ago, the range has grown to 3 sizes and 2 finishes and we try to continually take on board advice from Potters and customers in terms of product development and improvements.
