It is cider and pumpkin time.
Cool days and even cooler nights.
Hay rides, hot chocolate, apples and sweater time.
It is the weather where a potter turns the page of the calendar and goes into a full blown panic attack.
Really, fall is here, how dare fall come calling when I was not looking.
I am thankful that this year we made a choice to work earlier in the year just a bit harder. We have been stocking back a few pots out of each firing and making ourselves a bit of inventory.
Inventory you say? What's that?
I think we would all like to work on the theory that each kiln load fired magically sells as soon as it is unloaded. But, in the times that we are living today that is just not the possibility or reality.
So, instead we cleared some room in the work area to store pots as they came out of the kiln.
Fired and ready inventory. What a concept.
We will be working the next few weeks on a late October and maybe a mid November firing.
Pots are on track to start tomorrow.
Mark has been putting some time in painting some hollow core doors that we plan to use for displaying tiles at the November show.
In case you can get to Seagrove put this down as a must be weekend.
The Seagrove Potters get together on the weekend before thanksgiving and set up at what was the Luck's Bean factory in Seagrove NC, pop over to the website for more information. You need to go ahead and buy your ticket for the Friday night Gala. Get them while you can.

Maybe in January I can spin a coccoon of silk.
