Kiln Loading Today : Celebration of Seagrove Potters Update

We were wanting to load yesterday but the night fell on top of us and there were still more pieces to be glazed.  Bruce and I just did not feel up to loading in the dark and cold, and additionally it is hard to see if glaze has chipped off the pots during transportation.  We decided instead of pushing through to get the kiln out by Thursday, that a Friday hustle-hustle was worth not potentially messing up pots.  More hot pots for the weekends celebration.

Celebration of Seagrove Potters Update

Michael Mahan, owner of From the Ground Up Pottery, has some great images posted on his blog of the final preperation yesterday at the Cannery.  The steering committee, the potters, and many other volunteers from the local community, have worked together to put this show on.  We want to personally thank all of them for being there for the community and uniting together to put on our first Celebration of Seagrove Potters. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

Saturday's Celebration of Seagrove Potter's opens at 9:00 am, at the Historic Luck's Cannery, located on the 705 Pottery Highway, less than a mile from Seagrove.  There is a $5.00 admission to get in for anyone over the age of 12.  There will be food vendors at the Celebration for people's hungry bellies.  The cuisine include: burgers, hoagies, barbecue, hot dogs, and homemade ice cream.  Remember there are also restaurants in the area to dine at.   Just ask a potter for a suggestion of a nearby family restaurant or pick up a colored Seagrove Potters map.

Pottery Auction on Saturday Afternoon from 4:00 pm -6:00 pm
There will a fundraising auction offering pieces donated by participating and other local artists. Below are some of the pieces that have been donated.  To see more sampling of the work donated visit the Celebration of Seagrove Potter's website.  

Note: David will be at the Celebration with his pottery, but I also wanted you to know that his kiln opening is scheduled for the Saturday of December 6th and Saturday of the 13th.
