This past year has been one of change. The NCPC- the fire and the joining together of many of the local potters to have a show in November.
Mark and I will be showing along with our fellow potters at "The Celebration of Seagrove Potters".

One of the events is a Friday night Gala.

Cheese and wine- early preview and first choice at the potter's wares.

Also, we are having an auction of collaborative works. I was asked to make a tile to go in what will become a larger piece grouped with tiles made by other female Potters:
Bonnie Burns of Great White Oak Gallery
Laura Avery of Avery Pottery and Tileworks
Susan Smith of Smith Pottery
Samantha Henneke of Bulldog Pottery
Alexa Modderno of Seagrove Stoneware
Stephanie Martin of Dean and Martin Pottery
Carol Gentithes of Johnston and Gentithes ART Pottery
Sheila Ray of Ray Pottery

The theme is new beginnings- rebirth- something along that line.
I had just finished looking at pictures of the work area after the fire.
And then pictures of the cleaned areas.
This tile represents how I felt at that time. The outer part of the tile is the chaos of the fire and the inner part is the will to go on- to take wing and fly again.
So there you go- I hope to see you at our Celebration in November.

Mark your Calendars for the week-end before Thanksgiving.

That tile is beautiful, is it your design?

This tile is beautiful! Let me know when the auction is so I can maybe bid on it!

The Tile will go in a group of larger tiles with 9 others. It should be interesting to see the all the tiles together.
The inside griffin is out of a book - I used for ideas- but now gone with the fire.

Can I buy two or three of these from you? How much!?!

Jariris said...

Indeed, how much?

I'm really excited about the design.

I'll have to figure that out- and it may be awhile before I have more done.
I'll post some of the other tiles I have been working on from the last firing.
