I Don't Use Soap
I have closets full of wares to be fired so I'm getting ready for another bisque load. Pedestal bowls, soap dishes, small dipping bowls, test tiles, pendants, a few sculptures, experimental pieces, and more.
Remember Gary was going to diversify by selling some soaps at the flea markets. Seems everyone either knows someone who makes soaps, they have a lots of soap given to them as gifts, or they said 'I don't use soap'. Folks actually tell Gary they don't use soap. I can't believe folks don't use soap. Gary said the ones who said they didn't use soap really should have been using it.
Other folks said they use body wash, mostly the elderly. I guess if they drop the soap they don't want to risk bending over to pick it up for fear of falling in the shower. One guy told Gary he went to a craft fair the other day and there were ten soap vendors. The good news is we have lots of nice soaps to use and we are enjoying them. This post is part of show and tell Saturday for Artists in Blogland. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
