Seagrove Potters For Peace : 200 Cups

I am getting ready to take Bulldog Pottery cups over to Cady Clay Works this afternoon to participate in the cup sale that starts this coming Saturday. I have chosen to have the cups be part of the display over at Beth and John's (Cady Clay Works).
It has been a long time, over three years, since I have glazed my pottery using my colors. It feels good to see the pretty colors again. I am happy and relieved with the results. A lot of the buckets of glaze had thickened and I had forgotten about some of the intricies of using the clear and semi matt glazes. I plan on glazing this way for the upcoming Potters Market in Charlotte.
A few newspapers have picked up the story. Here are links to the three of them.

Courier Tribune, Asheboro
News and Record, Greensboro
The Pilot, Southern Pines/Pinehurst

I signed the bottom 3 "image of a cup" T . This is short for Three cups of Tea, the name of the book by Greg Mortenson that Beth Gore read, the impetus for her idea.

I love those cups, those colors! I still have a couple pieces of yours that have some similarities.

Beautiful cups. Are you guys donating 200 cups? Or is that the total from all the potters?

I am not sure where the 200 cups comes from. I thought I read that on Meredith's blog. We made and donated 17 cups. I dropped them off at Cady Clay Works yesterday!

I hope we sell out Saturday. Wouldn't that be cool.
