Nathan once again talked about having geologically significant rocks as artifacts and focal points in the pots to add story and interest. He also brought up again the sculptural found wood that could be incorporated into the pot. These are things that would require brochures and signage. The woman are not responsible for these added elements.
Nathan did not seem to realize that we are using 6" deep and 14" round pots. He thought we were using the turkey pots. He seemed disappointed that we weren't using oval shaped pots. If the money is there we can start turkey sized pots, but we will need to order the terracotta finished pots as well. Five or so would be a good number to start with. Farinoz will buy those for us and have them sent up.
Transportation was not discussed.
Nathan also mentioned what other things will be sold in the gallery. There will be oil paintings by a Panamanian Carlos Wheel. Sculptures of some sort maybe. He also said he would fill out the gallery with his personal art collection that wouldn't be for sale.
At the end I emphasized the importance of Nathan and Earth Train people going personally to El Valle to give feed back to the women and generally showing their support. Nathan agreed to come at least once before mid March.
