While I love my quilting obsession and would quilt everyday if I could, I am also one of those people who has to work for a living, you know, a paying job, a working stiff. I am fortunate enough to work for the Westmoreland Museum of American Art as their Museum Shop Manager. One of the perks of this great job is selling all the great work made by local artists. One of them is my (now) good friend Ben Eisaman, a potter from Youngwood, Pennsylvania. Ben owns and operates SIMPLE THINGS, a pottery and gift shop, and I met him a few years ago as I was browsing his shop. I asked him to consign with us here at the museum shop and his pottery is a very popular seller for us. Ben is now pursuing a fine arts degree and pretty soon he will be too busy to bring me his great pottery! Here are some pictures!
