Yesterday Bruce and I joined a group of potters and their families to help clean up around the front of the Historic Luck's Bean Plant to get ready for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters. It was a fun and invigorating morning for all of us. The potters on the publicity committee had a wonderful sign made and it was erected by noon. Bruce and I are excited about getting out to work with our fellow Seagrove Potters. All of us can get so busy in our day to day lives, keeping our studios open, and making pottery, that we don't get to see much of one another. During this process we have met potters for the first time that we have not had the pleasure to meet, even though we have lived here in Seagrove for over 10 years.
Working together to make this festival happen for sixty of the local potteries has been a very uplifting community experience. Also, I want to say "hats off" to the steering committee and all of the other potters for all of the hard work they have done to make all of this a successful and positive experience.
