This weekend we went camping at Bandit's Roost campground near Wilkesboro, NC. The photo above is taken from the top of Stone Mountain. My son invited two of his friends. They fished, skipped rocks, slid down waterfalls and ate more smores than you can imagine. We had a great time and we plan on going camping again soon.

Today I started early and made some nice urns and some more brie bakers. My clay was very hard and it was more difficult than usual to center the clay. My kiln was ready to unload in the afternoon and this is one of the cookie jars. I may be crazy, but I really like the red and turquoise together.
Tonight is the reception for the Wilkes Art Gallery Exhibition that I have entered 5 pieces in. It is my first gallery showing and I am pretty excited. The exhibition runs until Aug 1st.

This is an urn that got stuck to the kiln shelf. AGHHHH. I hate it when that happens.

Tomorrow I am going to get back to work making urns. I have made a bunch of bowls and platters lately, but I really enjoy making urns and I have sketched some ideas that I would like to try.
