Ain't no mountain high enough....


It's Sunday in November and while many folks go to church, eat a nice dinner with the family or watch football, we are in the studio working away.
Now don't get me wrong I am not complaining.
Well, maybe a little.
We did talk to both kids on the phone, who are doing great thanks for asking.
And I did go sit through a board meeting this afternoon at the North Carolina Pottery Center.
The good new from the center is it is stable for now.
the bad news from the center is we can not stop raising the money it takes to keep the place going.
The NCPC is a wonderful place.
The exhibitions are always worth the trip and the latest one opens this Friday.
So if you are coming our way be sure to stop in and see what this place is all about.
I only got a foothold on the mountain of pots today, but the plan is to get in there early tomorrow and knock them out!

So here's some of Allison's tiles.
Enjoy!

I like those rolling glaze carts; I made glaze on the picnic table outside the RV today; weather isn't too bad yet.

I love the tiny "well, maybe a little"! I could just hear a squeaky little voice say that :o)

Your mentee's tiles look great. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Your throwing room has some nice light with that high window. Makes things brighter. That was a good addition.

I love these tiles. Good inspiration for some Raku I think!

the tiles are great- I'll do another post about them when they are finished.
We out everything on wheels.
Tables, galzes, ware and we had a chair up on a pallet on wheels but it is no longer with us.
Back to the mountain- it is almost hill size.

Oh, Mark, that recliner was the envy of every man I knew....and many women. We'll have to see what we can scope out next time I'm down that way. How robust is the WhyNot Craig's list?

a day in the studio beats church and football hands down... not even a close call for me.
