It was my first time to visit potfest, believe it or not... and I absolutely loved it.. I aspire to have a table there one year. So many people talk passionately about ceramics and that is one of the reasons why I do it, as it inspires me and makes me passionate also. I did buy a couple of vessels from one ceramist, and gained a couple of tips too.
Whilst I was there I noticed a lot of ceramists and potters were, what seemed to be hobbyists. Which is also a plus as it shows that they must just love making with clay, they continue to do so in their spare time.
