The rain the other day had us jumping.
We were leaking in the studio, the shop and our porch.
It was raining, cats, dogs and donkeys here.
We did manage to load the kiln and brick the door.
I was so happy when we were finished.
Campbell House Gallery in Southern Pines .
Luck was on our side and we were able to drive down to Southern Pines without a down pouring of rain.
We wanted to see the show by 3 cousins, who all work in clay,and are from our area of Seagrove.
This show included cousins, Chris Luther, Chad Brown and Mack Chrisco of the Chriscoe family
The Chriscoe family, some used the e and some dropped the e, have been in the area since the 1700's.
For more reading on the family history follow the link from Chris Luther, he and his wife Lisa and been instrumental in the family research. They also had the vision for this show of the current generation of cousins that are all working in the field of clay now.
They all have their own distinct style.
I have know Mack since we were students in clay together.
I have know Chris since he was 22 before he before he married and opened his shop in the area.
I meet Chad a few years back, he is the youngest of the 3, and the latest of the line to become a potter.
If you are in the area it is a great show to go and see.

I know they must cherish this set since she passed away in the last few years.
I am heading out to see if I can soak up a little sun.
