Pack and Ship

These plates are en route (that's French for on route) to the
Artisan Gallery in Northampton MA. for the upcoming show, entitled,
"As the Crow Flies: NC Neighbors"
My neighbor potters are Michael Hunt and Naomi Dalglish!

Here is how I wrapped the platters for safe shipping.

First I wrap with newsprint.
Then I wrap the edge with bubble wrap.


Then the top and bottom are wrapped with bubble.

I like to use stretch wrap for fixing the bubble wrap.
This allows the bubble wrap to be easily reused.
I also think of the stretch wrap as tape without the nasty adhesives,
making it, by a fraction, a bit more "green".

Using a clay box I wrap the platter separately with
cardboard, giving it a little more protection.

A section is cut out to make folding the box less bulky
and hence a little easier to fold over.

The finished wrap job.

This is placed in the box with other pots and surrounded by peanuts.
Sorry I didn't snap a picture of the packing arrangement.

Off to Massachussetts these pots go.
I wish I were going, too!

I'll post more pictures of pots for the collection shipped
to Northampton in the next post!
