I am trying to find out if Jim Keith will be at the ceramics showcase in April 2017. I have several of his pieces but he no longer seems to come up to Washington. I would gladly make a trip to Oregon to see his work again. Any information would be gratefully appreciated.
Yes he is participating in the 2017 Ceramic Showcase. His Booth # is yet to be determined.
Jim Keith will be at the ceramics showcase in April 2017 in Booth #23.
Do you have a question about Ceramic Showcase?
I'm returning to participation in Showcase after a 14-year hiatus. A friend here filled me in on what she remembers are new rules, such as fireproofing all fabric. I am looking online, on the website, for information that would specify details like this (E.g. I don't want to buy fireproofing that isn't approved for some reason in Oregon). The Showcase policies document doesn't mention fireproofing at all (I remember that cardboard box pedestals had to be painted with fireproof paint, that's not mentioned either.) Can you please direct me to a document with all the current rules/policies that pertain to booths? Thanks. Laurie
Look for that information in the Showcase information packet coming to you in early February. Also look at last years here. https://oregonpotters.wildapricot.org/ceramic-showcase-artist-info/
Thank you, Andy - it looks like it's "under construction." This document doesn't mention the fireproofing of either cardboard, wood, or fabric. I am concerned about those details, and don't want to buy a product that will not be deemed sufficient when I'm setting up my booth. I understand I need to provide proof of purchase of fireproofing materials. I hope the details will arrive soon. Thanks again, and I'm sorry to bother you. Laurie
I took a peek at the convention center's policies and found this:
1. "All decorative materials must be flameproofed or of a type acceptable to the fire marshal’s office. Use of bark dust, mulch, chips or hay, etc., is not allowed unless pre-approved by the fire marshal’s office."
Not Not very specific as to flameproofing materials to be used.
I am looking for a ceramic artist who once had a booth at the Milwaukie Farmer's Market and a shop in Milwaukie. She frequently displayed a bery nice garden bench, all fired. I was told this morning at the Farmer's market that she had moved a few years ago to Eastern OR or WA. Does anyone have a lead to this artist, or is anyone making ceramic garden benches?
If so, would you please let me know via firstname.lastname@example.org
I just found your question and I don't know the answer, but I am posting your query on our OPA Member Chat facebook page to see if anyone else can help.
