It is Friday the 13th

of July, how is your luck running these days?
I have never been one to worry about the 13th.
 I figure like a full moon in October it has gotten a bad rap.
I love a full moon so, let's try to love the 13th.
We picked massive amounts of blueberries this morning.
This time of year if I don't get out there early it gets too hot too fast for me.
Beautiful morning for picking today, luck.


I have been working on as many tiles as I can over the summer getting ready for the fall.
I like this house, I worked in a tree on this one and I think it worked pretty well.

I have an order for some accent tiles for a kitchen, the customer has a vision of what she wants, I am just working through that.
I think it would be brilliant to have these in a kitchen they will add a nice splash of color.
I was reading the other day that the all white kitchen is on the way out.
For myself I like color in my spaces, I  have been interested in the all white, but never drawn to it. When I see all white I want some crayons so I can add some color in there.
Maybe drawn a house, a tree, some flowers....
At least with all white you won't need to worry about a primer. It's going to be easy to cover.

Here's your happy for the day.
Later!

Craft Beer and potter mugs

 We have noticed that as the craft industry has grown so have our sales of our beer mug.
We keep this item on the must make list and try to keep a good stock of them in the store for sale.
We have been pleasantly surprised at the steady sales of this item.
For us it is nice to not wonder, but to just make sure it is on the list.
We had a request for a mug that would fit a large hand. Mark worked out the size that would be needed for the customer and we just shipped 2 off to see if we are on target.

We have a favorite brew pub in Asheboro that we go have a pour now and again, the beer is great. We brought in our own mugs to use and that makes it even better. We enjoy sitting there and watching the different mugs used by the locals. I need to get a picture of the how the behind the counter looks as you are sitting at the bar, nothing warms the heart better than to see clay being used.
If you are in need of a new beer mug let us know, we ship.




Best,
M

Summer distractions 101



 I am so distracted this summer that I am finding that it is increasingly hard to sit down and write a post.
Then I think, I have probably told you everything that I know about making pots.
There are so many sources out there for information that I see less traffic here. We know where all the traffic seems to go these days.
Here is my summer:
Butterflies
Flowers
Tiles.
Any questions?
No, I didn't think so.
(Happy face here)
Enjoy your summer.
Oh- 10 years and counting since we were hit by lightning.
And, we are still here, making pots.
Let's see how the next 10 goes.
Cheers and a happy summer,
M
