Cousins in Clay Mountains 2012

A couple of weekends ago we were up in the Mountains for "Cousins in Clay" at Michael Kline's Pottery. Mark Shapiro and Sam Taylor joined us, travelling all the way from Massachusetts.  It was a great time, and there were many lovely pots to peruse.  We always have fun when we get together with Michael, Sam, and Mark, enjoying the time spent talking pottery, our lives as potters, and of course what ever mischief we can get into.  We took many pictures and made an album of them on the Cousins in Clay facebook page. You can see the album here at facebook Cousins in Clay Mountains 2012.
We are looking forward to joining up with the same gang, Michael, Sam, and Mark, in October along with nine other potters for "Pottery on the Hill" at the Hill Center in Washington D.C. 

While working with and looking at all of the pictures we took at Mountain Cousins, We realized that we have yet to share with you images from our past Seagrove Cousins in Clay with Ron Meyers and Judith Duff.  We will get to that soon.  We have just finished designing the "save the date" postcard for our Cousins in Clay coming up next year!  Mark your calendars for June 1 and 2, 2013, join us and our special guests David MacDonald from Syracuse, and Jack Troy from Pennsylvania.  

Presently in the studio we are working on glazing a Moka glaze kiln for the upcoming Potters Market Invitational in Charlotte, at the Mint Museum Randolph, September 15, 2012, 10:00 - 4:00. To read all about it visit the Mint Museum's website for the details.
