Feedback from previous mentor sessions:

“Your advice and counsel has really stuck with me since our meeting. […] I wouldn’t have pursued this collaborative path if you and I hadn’t talked, and I’m so very grateful. I hope we can have a check-up meeting the next time you offer your mentoring sessions. Thanks again, so much.”

“This was so great for my brand. Sometimes you are so close to your brand that you know something isn’t right but you just need to hear it from someone else. Amy delivered the bum kicking I needed and helped me re-think aspects of my business and get 2017 off to an amazing start.”

Summer Market Vendor Spotlight: Laurie Caffery

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

VTGCLT is popping up on May 12th at Camp North End for the seventh annual Summer Market! Come out and spend the day shopping with over 80 of the region’s best vintage & handmade vendors. $7 early bird entry at 10am // $2 general admission 11am-5pm.

Leading up to the market, we’ll be sharing vendor spotlight posts that give you a chance to meet some of our amazing vendors in advance of the market. We are really excited to welcome Laurie Caffery to her first Vintage Charlotte Summer Market. Laura Caffery creates functional ceramics with whimsical illustrations of home. Here is Laurie with a little about her process and a sneak peak of what she is bringing to market:

I have always planned to be an artist, but as a child I was much more interested in drawing and painting. I took ceramics in high school and enjoyed it very much, but did not see it as a path I was interested in. Freshman year of college I took a beginner wheel throwing class, and although I had worked on the wheel many times before a switch flipped and I was completely hooked. From then on I couldn’t imagine working with any medium other than clay.
My work is inspired by the concepts of finding home and belonging. I explore these themes through narrative and whimsical scenes on functional pottery to elicit the feeling of place. I grew up living in and exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, so my drawings often reference these areas that I am most comfortable in.
My absolute favorite thing about clay is that there is always more to learn. I am learning about new techniques, methods, and materials in ceramics all the time and it is so exciting. It keeps me engaged in the medium as I push my work forward.

We are really excited to welcome Katie of Waxing Gibbous Pottery to her first Vintage Charlotte Summer Market.  Waxing Gibbous Pottery is a handmade ceramics shop, here is Katie with a little about her process:waxing gibbous pottery

I make ceramic objects for everyday use that capture a memory or a daydream of an exotic place. The time I have spent in the homes of Mexican immigrants and in the tiled rooms of Spain and Morocco has nudged my aesthetic toward bold folk imagery and geometric patterns. I am currently obsessed with Moroccan “zellige” tile mosaics and the palm fronds I saw all over Costa Rica.waxing gibbous potteryI convert images from my travel photographs into paper stencils and silkscreen patterns which are then applied using slip and underglaze to wheel thrown and handbuilt pots. The images transfer imperfectly to the surface of the pot, hinting of worn plaster walls and peeling paint. I work primarily in earthenware which uses less energy to fire and produces bright colors in clay and glazes. My forms are sturdy and comfortable, designed for the daily grind but reminiscent of a faraway place.waxing gibbous potterywaxing gibbous pottery
