I was supposed to be done throwing last week, since my last show of the year is Seagrove (this weekend). Instead I have to make enough pieces to fill my kiln, just so that I can fire this piece. Hopefully this weekend I will get some more custom orders. The six platter order I started last month will need to be glaze fired anyway and will probably take a few loads.
Tomorrow I will head up to the Seagrove Pottery Festival to set up my booth. This year my Auction piece will be a teapot. Check out my Facebook page for a photo. The forecast is chilly, so I need to bring warm clothes. The festival is always very busy, so I hope that is the case again this year.
Early next week I will start adding new items from my leftover inventory to my Etsy site. Then I will take some new pieces to a few gifts shops in town.
In a few weeks I head to western N.C. to attend the John C. Campbell school for a week. I will be taking a pottery course with Sylvia Coppola. My mom is going to be my room mate and she is taking the copper enameling course. I am looking forward to the trip.
