Spruce Pine Potters Market and Back Again

Last weekend was the Spruce Pine Potters Market.  What a great show.  Not only do I get to spend my weekend with potters I really like, but there are tons of folks who come out to buy our work! 


Part of my booth after the Saturday rush.  I got cleaned out!  I’m glad to be past the show- on to the next one as my neighbor potter (Michael Kline) says.  So this week I threw seed pots.  24 small plates, to be trimmed and squared.


I’m excited to be back in the studio.  It’ll be a short run- firing at the end of November.  I’m sharing the kiln with Kline, so I won’t need to make a full load.  Now’s the time to place your order!

I’m off to the showroom to pack and send out some more pots, but I’ll leave you with one more image.


She’s getting so big!  Sheesh.

Thanks for reading.



Where does the time go?  I’ve been out of the studio tending to my home life.  Our yard is well kept now, the house is clean, and best of all I get to spend time with my family.  Grae and I planted fall greens and she’s been proud to be in charge of watering them.

Below are a few new images from the last firing.  You can find all the new images in the Gallery section of this website.  Let me know what you think!

Next weekend (October 12 and 13) is the Spruce Pine Potters Market.  If you haven’t been before (or if you have!) you should really try to get here for it.  It’s a great group of potters all in one spot.  It’s a casual show, but almost everyone is firing just for this- so we’ll all have our latest and greatest.  I hope to see you there.

After SPPM it’s back to the studio for me.  I’m firing again in late November.  I think I’m sharing the kiln with my neighbor potter Michael Kline, so I don’t have to make a full kiln load, but it will be enough to restock for the holiday sales.  Now’s the time to let me know if you have a pot you want me to make for you!
