I reloaded the kiln last night and tomorrow morning I will get these pieces and all the others out and ready for the Earth and Fire Festival. The reception is Saturday June 23rd from 7-9. The show runs until July 27th. I will be unable to attend the reception do to my being at the Art in the Park in Asheville until 6 and then tearing down the display, I won't make it back to Kings Mountain in time. Last year I had a great time visiting with all the visitors and other potters.
On Tuesday I unloaded the load of pieces for the Mountain Nest Gift Shop in Black Mountain. I was disappointed to find that five out of the seven mugs I glazed had too much glaze and it ran on to the shelf. I re-made the mugs and will hopefully have them finished next week.
Next week I hope to glaze the pieces for Ocean Annies in Duck, NC.
