Congratulations to our neighbours down south of us, for the nomination of their new president elect: Barack Obama! What a victory! I followed the story on the news the other night and couldn't help but think about a little grouping of ceramic artists who pulled together to auction off their hand-made Obamaware to raise over $10 000 for his campaign! Amazing what people can do together under a common cause! A ceramic artist called Ayumi Horie organized the auction and her site is really unbelieveable with photos of Obamaware in action etc!
Check out the roster of artists that got involved in the project here! There is an amazing photo of Obama holding up one of her mugs during a campaign speech on the site- check it out!
Also check out Diana Fayt's blog as her Obamaware is something else!
To those people who bought Obamaware during the auction...not a bad investment piece! Those babies will turn up on the Antiques Roadshow years from now fetching a pretty penny more than what they paid originally!
