On the table in the studio - Upcoming Holiday Kiln Opening

Bruce Gholson getting ready to through a large bowl
We have been working steady in the studio since the Celebration of Seagrove Potters that took place a couple of weeks ago.  We are making as many pots as we can to fill our kiln before our holiday opening on December 15th.  It is nice to have one more 'Hurrah' before we see the year 2012 through and begin a new fresh year - - 2013.  I love this time of year. After Thanksgiving we switch the Pandora station in the house to Holiday Music.

These images are various stages of us throwing pots this past week.  While working in the studio we listen to podcast stories.  This past week we finished one story, Trolls of Lake Maebiewahnapoopie, written and read by Jeff White. This was a fun, silly, laugh out loud children's story.

Our December Holiday Kiln Opening is on Saturday, December 15, 2012 from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm.

Many variations on a theme.

Bruce, I have to say, your handles make me smile. Mighty fine. Fit like they were made for my hand. Unfortunately, my wife and daughter agree as well.... which means I have to fight them for the mugs we have from you and Sam. Guess that means we need more, eh?

Hello folks,

As a sometime writer, it's always interesting to see where one's work ends up. Glad that you enjoyed the Trolls book while creating such beautiful pottery.
