Save the Date and other Noteworthy events
It has been too long since we have written an update here, but, unfortunately, this post will only contain the skimmings of events to come, not of the juicy details of days that have come and gone. That will be for a later date, after we get a few of the big festivities out of our hair....
Sept. 10th - If you have nothing to attend to this weekend, think about visiting us at the Pottery Invitational at the Mint Museum in Charlotte (click the blue-linked words - we're going high tech on you!). There will be 40 seismically talented potters present selling the fruits of their labor. Come support an artist and buy local; you'll be glad you did!
Evening of Sept. 10th - We have donated a fine piece of pottery to auction off at to the annual Zoo to Do located at the NC Zoo in Asheboro. This year's theme is "Moonlight Masquerade," and with it preceding the Harvest Moon by two days (Sept. 12th), what better way to enjoy a roaringly festive saturday evening than among friends and furry beasts. Please contact the NC Zoo for more information and to purchase a ticket to attend. Proceeds benefit the NC Zoo.
October 1st and 2nd - Joseph and I will once again be in attendance at Fall Festival just in nearby Asheboro. The crowd is always fantastic and we plan to bring a wheel and some clay and throw a few pots, maybe even a big 'un! We will also have pots for sale, both in traditional, salt-glaze form and some new reds from the small and mighty wood-fired glaze kiln.
Finally, the biggest news yet...SAVE THE DATE! Holiday Kiln Opening: November 26th-27th and December 3rd-4th (two weekends, that's right!). Looking for something to do with your relatives or for an excuse to get out of the house, away from all the hustle and bustle of cleaning dishes after eating turkey five ways from sunday? Come look at some beautiful pottery! We will feature salt-glazed wares from the large kiln as well as some stellar red glaze, lava glaze, whites, and blues from the new glaze kiln.
