Hi Cyndy - 
I think you should ask the people who said that, because it makes no sense to me.  By dictionary definition, a potter is someone who makes pottery.

I just participated in my first juried art show. It was a learning curve, but also very enjoyable. On several different occasions I received almost identical comments regarding how I was a potter unlike others at the show who were making pottery. I didn't know if I was being insulted or appreciated. I did sell well and enjoyed the interaction with people immensely, but these comments hung on in the back of my mind throughout the weekend.

 For those of you who have been at this for a while, can you offer some words of wisdom??
