When It Rains, It Pours.

This has been a VERY wet week.  I don’t know how many inches we actually got here, but is basically poured for 4 days.  We have been preparing to put a new roof on our house- we bought the tin, hired a crew… and then the rain.  Ugh.  As soon as the rain let up yesterday, John and our crew ripped off the old (leaky) roof.

They are going to get the whole roof done this upcoming week.  It feels good to be taking care of the old house.

Meanwhile in the studio, pots were not drying.  So I kept throwing.  Today all the pots seemed to dry at one.  I spent today trimming pots.


condiment bowls.

I had a couple boards of large mugs to put handles on.  Here is my handle attachment station.

Finished mugs with handles.

I have about a month left to make pots for this firing, and lots still to make.

Thanks for reading.



I hope this isn’t rude but I’m curious about how much it might cost for a metal roof. We have some water damage and we are going to have to put a new roof on if it ever stops raining here! Would you mind sending me an email with just a ball park figure, no worries if you would rather not:)
I enjoyed seeing your work down at Saxapahaw by the way!
