The potters are in house- seagrove style

In David's workshop
I can not even begin to tell you what it was like to have Doug, Hannah and Angela walk in my house.
It was a thrill.
After meeting on line, reading each others blogs and facebooking there they were standing in the
USof A in Seagrove NC.
How sweet was that.

In the morning we headed down the road about 10 am to see David Stuempfle, Micheal Mahan, Mary Ferrell of Westmoore Pottery and Jugtown Pottery.
Then back to the house for lunch.
Then a mad dash to the NC Pottery Center, Johnston and Gentithes and Bulldog Pottery.
It was all I could fit in for the day.
There were several more I would have loved to drag them to but it was pack them off and send them off with Ron.
Now to start planning our trip to their part of the world.
A special thanks to Tracey for taking a day off to join us.
Angela who is developing a grand southern accent.
It was a blast!

At David's new kiln



From the ground up- Michael Mahan


What a day!
