I had a great time this year at Ann Arbor. Amid the lovely, heartfelt compliments there were a few comments I "collected" and thought you all might get a chuckle out of them...
Two separate buyers assured me I shouldn't worry because my work would be "going to a good home."
A lady with a very obvious Chinese accent and a large camera pointed at my ceramic art:
"Is all of this made in the US?"
Another lady scrutinizing the sculpted ceramic herons I make:
"Where do you get your birds?"
And my all time favorite, overheard from a man crabbing into his cell phone on State Street:
"There are all these stupid white tents everywhere, and I can't find my bus stop!"
(Doesn't it just make you wonder if he noticed there weren't any buses?)
