Celebration of Seagrove Potters 2010

Ed and Gloria opening night at the Gala

The opening night of the Celebration of Seagrove Potters.. "the hottest ticket in town" as quoted from John Chappel of The Pilot, the Celebration Gala opened this years pottery weekend with lots of smiles and happiness. The music played, bellies were full, people talked and laughed, and pots were touched and taken home. What more can anyone ask for? Life is fleeting and it is moments like these that are cherished and remembered. O.k. I know I am sounding like hallmark, but life can get complicated and we need to remember to take a step back and recognize how wonderful it is to be alive and be with people that are mighty fine.

Playing below is the Joe Robinson Jazz Band. They were great.

Plenty of space at the Luck's Cannery for people to sit around and talk, enjoy their food, and energize their bodies for pottery shopping.

Benjamin and Bonnie Burns of Great White Oak Gallery and Lisa (Bonnie's daughter). Bonnie was one of the potters that worked ongoing this year to put on the Celebration.

Customers and potters were engaged all evening long, here is Crystal King on the left
