Bruce, Gloria, and I all signed up for this years Potters conference in Asheboro, NC. Asheboro is about 15 minutes north of us, and this 3-day conference is one of the best annual clay get together in the state. One of us always signs up to go, and this year we decided to treat all of us with a special Valentines present. Ed drew the short straw and has to stay home to keep the shop open and mind the manor.
The presenters demostrating are Alleghany Meadows, Mark Pharis, and Phil Rogers.
Dwight Holland and dedicated volunteers organize this conference with the Randolph Arts Guild. Highwater Clays sponsors the Friday night dinner. Thank you Brian and Gail McCarthy!

Alleghany Meadows - A Survey of Alternative Fuels and sustainable practices
