THIS IS JUST ONE IN A SERIES OF VENDOR SPOTLIGHTS WHERE WE LET THOSE WHO WILL BE SHARING THEIR WARES SHINE A LIGHT ON WHAT IT IS THEY DO! WE ASKED KATHY FROM VISIONS AND VESSELS TO INDULGE US BY ANSWERING A FEW QUESTIONS.
HERE'S WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY:
1). What's your name, where are you from and what is it that you make?
My name is Kathie Jandrey and I am a potter based in Richfield,Ohio. I create wheel thrown and hand built ceramic pieces.
2). How did you acquire the unique skill set to do what it is you do?
My first exposure to pottery was at around age 8 when I asked Santa to bring me a pottery wheel for Christmas. Best present ever! I took ceramics classes in high school and college. In 2009 I registered for classes at a local pottery studio just for fun, and reignited my passion for clay. I opened my own studio in 2015.
3). What is your best seller?
Best sellers vary by season and location, but mugs are always a favorite. Items with unusual surface decoration, like sgraffito, or interesting glazes, are also attractive.
4). How long have you been vending? Have you done a Crafty Mart show before?
I have been vending for 3 years. Crafty Mart was my introduction to vending and I have participated in several Crafty Mart shows!
5). The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
That's a tough one, but I'll go with The Beatles!
