In which my whole family (nearly) is interviewed

Etsy contacted my nephew because they heard that he was member of a family with 3 generations of men on selling with them. There was an interview, featuring me and the rest of us, pictures and all. It begins:

"During our Virtual Labs office hours, Etsian abitabite tipped the Storque that a post about humbleglory, Rith, and donaldrith would make an interesting story about three generations of men on Etsy — ripe for our Dude's Perspective series. Turns out this family has even more relatives on Etsy than we'd thought:


My name is Gary Rith, my shop is Rith.etsy.com and I have been a full-time potter for eleven years. I live outside of Ithaca, NY with my studio, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 1 wife. My father Donald Rith aka donaldrith is a watercolorist who lives an hour away and my nephew is Ben Rith-Najarian aka humbleglory, who is an alchemist (etc). Ben's mother aka riversedge, Ben's sister aka leslierrn, and Ben's other aunt aka janetexcat are all also Etsy artists."

and it goes on and on with quotes from all of us....

Very cool, Gary. It's not every day that someone's father calls them "expert" at something. :-D

Congrats on the interview! What a great way to get exposure! I had no idea your whole family is artistic.
