Celebration Collaboration with Blue Hen Pottery

Samantha Henneke and Anne Partna

In two days, on the evening of Friday the 18th this set of 10 drinking cups will join many other Seagrove Potter's collaborations at the Celebration of Seagrove Potters.  Seagrove Potters have been working on these projects since this summer.  Anne Partna from Blue Hen Pottery and myself decided to work together to create something for the collaboration gala auction. We both made drinking cups and exchanged them for the other to decorate. I took Anne's cups home to decorate with butterflies and beetles and Anne took my drinking cups home and decorated them with her chickens.  I used her decorating materials and Anne used my decorating materials.  We exchanged these cups back and I fired the chicken cups in my kiln and Anne fired the butterfly/beetle cups in her kiln. Pretty fun I think!

The Celebration's evening Gala kicks off this awesome weekend pottery event on Friday, Nov. 18th from 6:00pm-9:00pm. Tickets need to be purchased in advanced and you can do this on the Celebration of Seagrove Potters' website. If you have any questions you can e-mail me.

The Celebration of Seagrove Potters continues on Saturday morning at 9:00am-6:00pm with demonstrations, kids booth, and a silent auction in the afternoon. There are concession stands when you get hungry on the premise. On Sunday the Celebration opens up at 10:00am-4:00pm. You can find out all the detailed information at the Celebration of Seagrove Potters website.

Also the Seagrove Potters have been posting on the Celebration of Seagrove Potters facebook page. If you are on facebook you can join us there too.

Cheers and we look forward to seeing you this weekend!
