A Sunday afternoon

Last week was a long week- we spent the weekend at the Catawba Pottery Festival.
Then last Sunday we spent the day restocking the store and planning what we would take to the Greensboro Pottery Show.
After a week working on pots we jumped into the wood firing yesterday, came home packed the truck and this morning off we went to Greensboro.
It was a short ride up the road- a wonderful day to be out.

We were greeted by the staff and fellow potters. It was nice to be invited to participate in their show and we felt very welcomed.
I had to have a picture of these two students from Guilford College. They had some sweet wood fired pots for sale.
It makes me feel good to see and talk with someone their age and feel their enthusiasm for our shared art.
Susannah plans to move out to Washington State after her graduation and then possibly back to the East coast to work under someone who does wood fired.

Who knows maybe we will see her again.
Meanwhile there was a brisk crowd out at the show.
After a quick dinner we are home and ready to put our feet up and get ready for next week!

I'm worn out just reading all where you've been, you deserve to put your feet up.

Oh no, I was just reading below about the tile - so sorry, what about the two part epoxy - I've had good luck with that. there are several types and I get the one which says it will glue ceramic, wood and metal on the front package. I used it on my crosses, still haven't gotten around to doing my wall panels, hope to this week - I can let you know.
