We enjoyed some company Sunday night through Monday morning.
My daughter's friends stopped in for a nice visit. We enjoyed having them and I took Monday morning to run them around to some of the potteries.
We had a nice stop in with Michael and Mary at From the ground up. Michael took the time to give our company a tour of his work area and show them how he makes the large patters. He also showed us his wonderful stamps he uses for the trees.
We then went to O'Quinn a quick in and out there.
I then pulled into Bobbie Thompson's Pottery knocked on the door of her work area and found her and two of the other potter's taking a Monday off to play with unrelated clay art, they were making paper- fun to play in January. Sucess a pot was bought and happliy taken home.
Smith Pottery- nice new gallery and pots- but again just looking.
Then over to Ray Pottery for a quick in and out there-
Then back here in time to pack them off for their trip home.
They wanted to stop in Asheboro for lunch and so we called the two places I recomended and they were both closed. There were other potteries I had wanted to take them as well- but they were closed as well. I laughed and told them that NC is closed on Mondays. I hope they found some food for the trip home!
Thanks for stopping in and we will enjoy the beer steins you brought to us!
So I am working on a piece which will need casting. I am playing with the size and thickness now- I left wet clay last night and hope today it has set up enough to carve.
This will become a gift for the guest at our son's upcoming wedding in May.
Since I thought I would have this done in January and be in the making stage- I had better get cracking on this!
But first- a trip to see the dentist....
