Let's March, it's March

 Here we go, month 3 is marching forward, week 2 is quickly here.
I am piling up enough tiles to fire soon.
Mark is working on a gas firing for Ms. B.
 Last month he worked over at the college firing the gas kiln we have there. It was full of students work. He was a little nervous firing a kiln load of pots worked on by others. It is hard enough to lose your own work, but the thoughts of messing up other work is a different set of jitters. He did a fantastic job, it was a great firing.
The students were very excited over some excellent results, with almost no glaze on the shelves we were ecstatic. They are ready to fill this again soon.
Now to teach them how to fill the kiln with less bowls and more other items.
If you are interested the college has a facebook page, Montgomery Community College Pottery, they are in Troy NC, not Troy NY or other big cities. Just look them up, I have posted pictures of the firing.

 The trees and flowers tell us that spring is coming, we are excited to see the usual signs of trees budding, flowers in the yard. There is still that chill in the air, but the promise of warm weather is here.
Check with us on your next trip to the area our hours have changed. We are closing some in order to get work finished here, but we are always open to you. Come down, we will have a key ready.
Otherwise you are very likely to find us open Wednesday-Saturday.

All the wet weather has made me especially excited to see spring come this year. It was seeing your peonies up that made me think to look at ours.
