HERE, I just hope everyone hears of the change and will come down to the Mall to check out the best of Carolina Pottery.
Last week I took a little time to "smell the roses". My mom and I went up to our cabin near Chimney Rock. We spent time gazing at the beautiful scenery, shopping, and chillin'.
This coming week I will be throwing and glazing for the Carolina Pottery Festival Nov 10th and the Seagrove Pottery Festival on November 17-18th.

Yesterday I unloaded the kiln and this vase was a favorite. On the neck I used the rounded top of a lag screw to make intentions. I got the idea from the Joy Tanner workshop. She used the octagon shaped bolts to make texture on her pots.
After the show on Monday I will throw like crazy for a few days, then I am taking my mom up to the mountains and our cabin for a visit. When I get back I will glaze like crazy for the Carolina Pottery Show in Shelby and the Seagrove Pottery show the next week. I also need to get pieces ready for the month long show at Kings Mtn.

My goal for next year is to try to get into some new shows. I have been doing the same shows for the past few years and am ready for a change. There are still decisions to be made on whether I want to upgrade my booth. I wonder sometimes how much it matters in getting into shows and selling more pieces. This photo may be one that gets sent out on applications.

I few weeks ago I finished this dinnerware set for eight. A five piece place setting is $95, and pieces can be purchased individually. Other glaze combinations can be ordered. Wedding Registry is also available.

This Saturday I will at the Brushy Mtn Apple Festival in North Wilkesboro. The weather forecast looks good so I expect that the crowds will be good. My mom will be keeping me company during my fall shows.
Today I started an order for Mountain Nest in Black Mountain. Tomorrow I plan on making the piece for the Seagrove Pottery Festival's Auction plus some more teapots and other fun items.
