Cousins in Clay 2011

OK, Ok, just a short ditty to point you in the direction of the Liberty Stoneware blog and Bulldog Pottery blog for more pictures of the Cousins in Clay/Seagrove event last week. Then it's back to my break from blogging and designing my Mountain Cousins in Clay flyer in time for this weekend's Toe River Arts Council Summer Studio Tour.

That's all. If you would like to continue to hear my pottery, news please subscribe to my newsletter here.

Thanks so much for reading .

Fare Thee Well

Summer is here! The kid's last day of school is tomorrow and I'm making plans for the next Cousins in Clay event that will be here in the mountains in late August.

in Seagrove for Cousins in Clay, 2011

The Cousins Seagrove event was awesome! Peter Lenzo and Jack Troy were our invited guests this year and it was truly a thrill to spend the weekend together. There was great conversation and storytelling throughout meals and in the evenings while we enjoyed the fireflies light show and tree frog's song.

But now there is pottery to make, and potatoes to hoe!


But the news for today is that I've decided to put Sawdust and Dirt to rest for the time being. After the last cycle of work I've decided that so many things are being preempted to maintain the blog. I want to spend more time with the family and kick back every once in a while, and I have a lot of gardening to do. (I'm also putting together my scythe crew to mow my fields.)

That's not to say I won't be spending time behind the camera and the screen. I will be finally designing my web site and stocking my Etsy store. I will also try to send out frequent announcements and news from the studio to my email folks. Sign up if you'd like to be on the email list.

So, until the next one, have a great summer and stay in touch.
