Ayumi Horie has assembled the Obamaware Preview here but I haven't been able to get on the site for the past half an hour. The response must be overwhelming the server. At some point you should go check it out. There are some amazing pieces that will go on sale at 12 NOON EST, Wednesday, Oct. 15th. You can sign up to be emailed when the sale is LIVE, here.

The Obamaware Preview is now up! Browse now and come back for the Online Sale on Wednesday, the 15th at noon EST. Half of the proceeds will be donated to his campaign for president and many of the artists are making full donations. In almost all cases, the work you see for sale here are the only Obama/Biden pieces they've made and they're all limited editions.

Sarah Archer, the director of Greenwich House Pottery, has also written an excellent essay called Kitchen Table Politics: 'Obamaware' Campaigns for Change One Mug at a Time.

Create and check your account

Since there has been so much interest in this sale, I would recommend creating an account now, if you don't already have one. If you have an existing account, to be on the safe side, please make sure that you can login with no trouble, because I changed servers last week in order to accommodate the new flood of traffic. I'm anticipating a huge wave of traffic as the sale begins. Keep in mind that pieces in your shopping cart are not sold until you check out.

From now until Wednesday, nothing is for sale on the site, including my own work.
