Fabulous Time at Bulldog Pottery

We had a fabulous Saturday. We want to thank everyone that came out to our place here in Seagrove, North Carolina. The day was chilly and we had a taste of Carolina snow during the day. The flakes were large and dusted the ground. Saturday we pulled out an assortment of colored cups. Colors that remind us of mangoes and strawberries, celery, and summer skies.

The word was out that there were kiln openings happening here in Seagrove, Chris Luther Pottery, Westmoore Pottery, Thomas Pottery, Avery Pottery and Tileworks, and Jugtown Pottery all were having special days, as well as many other potteries that are working hard after the Celebration to keep their shops stocked for the season.

We have so much fun talking with people. Stories of movies, inspirations, hobbies, and adventures filled our space.

A plate by Samantha -- a crystalline glaze flowing into a colored shiny glaze. We like the way the snowy peach glaze changes the color of the turquoise around the plate's perimeter.

This glazed wall hanging has a lot of activity and movement.

We received the new Carolina Arts just in time to hand it out at the Holiday kiln opening..
Carolina Arts is filled with info on art events, shops, and galleries across North and South Carolina

Ed is fixing up all of the yummy foods that Gloria made for the day- lentil and sausage soup, stollen pastry, hot cider, gingerbread cake, cookies, pimento cheese (yummy!), and coffee.

Just about everything was eaten during the day. We had a wonderful turn out despite the chill and snow.

I popped out of the studio during the snow and captured some close ups.
