Blast Off!

Here we go! We have a klin firing as I write this. We will work on one more electric kiln firing between now and Wednesday.  Then to hit the ground running getting ready for our "Cousins" event. Every year we hit a crescendo and then its party time! Our guests David MacDonald, Jack Troy, and Michael Kline will arrive with their pottery for all of us to enjoy! What piece or pieces will you take home with you? It will be a fun weekend. There is no doubt about it.

Please join us for our 5th Annual "Cousins in Clay" June 1-2, 2013.  The sale begins at 10:00am and  Chronis Pou Vasilou will be playing his bazouki shortly after. We will have a few goodies to nibble on and then at 3:00 pm we will roll out the wheels to have a demonstration by Michael Kline and Bruce Gholson.
On Sunday there will be a Potters Potluck at 12:00 with Will McCanless playing his banjo. Jack Troy will read some of his poetry around 1:30ish after lunch.

We will look forward to seeing you here!

A friend on facebook commented that Bruce seems like he is working all the time.  I replied "That is a good thing!" Can't have him being idle can we?

Hi Dan! Thank you! We get some bees at the end of the week. A neighbor will put a couple of bee hives on our property.
