Die Mädels… #1867

In my spare time (and as a favour to these 2, although I charge other people), I set up web presences for artists.

Ute Matschke (l) and Maria Meyer (r) (aka “Die Mädels” – “The Girls”) are potters in Höhr-Grenzhausen and I’ve known them for ages and a day.

Since I’ve been helping organise the Alzey Potters Market (and doing their web presence), it struck me how many ceramic artists either don’t have a website or – if they do – how shonky and out-of-date it is.

Ute and Maria didn’t, so I offered to set one up for them and maintain it with all their markets and exhibitions, payment being an annual home-cooked meal (3 courses, wine, coffee) and a regular supply of Maria’s excellent baking.

Up in Höhr-Grenzhausen for the opening of an exhibition last week and arranged some customer interaction – working out how better to display their products and designs on the website and “Oh, could you maybe get rid of that horrible photo of us?”.

47 images later (“Eeeeh, they’re awful, that’s enough, no, take some more, can you make my nose less red/ not show my grey hair”, we decided on this one.

It’ll do.
