And yes we like to fire mud dauber's nests too. You will find these in many a potter's studios. Fred Johnston at J.&G. Art Pottery has some nice salt glazed ones.

Max is hanging outside our hog parlor. The grass is a more comfortable place to be then where we are. Yes Max does care where he sits. Grass is much better than mud. He came up with Gloria to check out the garden and what needs to be done next.
Bruce is bricking up the kiln and right on time! We are very excited that we have a couple more hours before we go to bed. Just enough time to pop open our Ranger and watch a couple episodes of Modern Family. Very very funny stuff. We polished off the second pint of Ice Cream that Jeff brought to us from Maple View Farm over in Hillsborough, NC. The flavor was peach! Since the Peach ice cream we ate the Double Choclate. Oh my gosh. It is like a cold fudge brownie.
Oh yes one last thing to do. Take the can off of the chimney. Something that is nice to do before it gets too dark. Loading a kiln during day light savings time is so much nicer than in the winter. Having the last 4 hours of light really makes a big difference.
Today we fire and clean up for this coming weekend!

We sold this beautiful green vase yesterday. We will ship it out to California after Cousins.
Bruce is figuring out what the next level should be and if we should go low or high.
Yes we are having fun. What is that song I sang back in 8th grade? These are the Times of Our Lives. It was a song that our chorus teacher loved, and she made us sing it over and over again. We all did not like it so much, but now looking back on it maybe she was trying to implant a positive message into our future.
Cousins in Clay is this coming Saturday and Sunday! We hope to see you here.

Bright, bold, daunting, delicate and sublime. Teapots made to brew tea, the imagination or both!
Created from clay, glass, metal, wood, and more by local, regional, and national artists. Over 200 teapots for show and sale.
Back by popular demand the National Teapot Show VIII is a triennial show curated by Cedar Creek Gallery dating back to 1989.
Cedar Creek Gallery is a must see gallery over in Creedmoor near Durham. Fabulous art in a beautiful garden setting.
Check out our posts that we did a couple of years ago.

Ed is helping us wash pots. He has also been putting in the new pantry shelves and laying down the floor in the office. Gloria has painted the main room and planted many tomatoes! A lot to be done before the Cousins Come next week!!!!
Bruce is still out back and the birds are flying around waiting for him to schmooze. But they just will have to get used to him being back there this week. Their nest is somewhere behind the clay mixer in the corner past Bruce. One of the birds is frequently sitting on the outer corner of the door telling B to beat it.
