Set Up for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters
Yesterday we brought out all of our pottery for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters' Spring kiln openings. Here are some pictures we took in the early morning before the sheets became yellow with pollen. The pollen here is so thick this year, that when the wind blew it was like a dust storm. There were many visitors here in Seagrove enjoying the wonderful weather (despite all of the pollen) and all of the new work that the potters had out on display. We had quite a few cars here at Bulldog throughout the day. Spending days like yesterday, with enthusiastic and wonderful people is such a treat. We finished the day off by attending the Grand Opening of ARTifex gallery and studio school in Troy. We had a great time there. Beverly and Chad Dickson did an incredible job of transforming the building into a vibrant gallery space and art studio classroom. She displayed a group of stunningly colorful, and richly textured variations of her Petroglyph series. This series is partially inspired by the Judaculla Rock glyphs in Jackson County, NC. I think we will be visiting Troy again soon.
