A lot of my ideas, as many artists do, stem from other's creation that I take and make my own but this design was mine from the start and I take pride in that. So I started creating quite a few "Sand and Sea" pieces and plan to make scenes with little crabs, sea shells, etc. and I feel these will be my best sellers to the local galleries. I have also taken the image of my first finished "Sand and Sea" bowl and used it as my business card background and banner (see card below and banner at the top of my page).
I'm really excited that I finally have a piece that defines my true style. I loved my first "Sand and Sea Turtle" bowl so much I've decided to keep it and it is my favorite piece of pottery thus far! So you will be seeing a lot more of this design and hopefully not just on here and Etsy, but in some local galleries as well.
Never fear though, I will still be making other pieces as well. Tenzie and I talked about it and he made a good point, that if I turn to only making this style of pottery I am going to be targeting a certain audience and no others. If I continue to create a wide variety of pieces I will continue to appeal to more buyers and most likely make more sales. Also, I don't want to get burnt out or bored with this one design. So my jewelry and pottery selection will remain as random as always, but now I will at least have one signature piece that people will see and recognize as the work of Mallory Trasport.
