Gratitude day

Thank you.
It's a good time to pause and think of all I've been receiving this year.

Clay, clay supplies.
A place to make whatever I can.



Nature...it's just there.
Spiritual inspiration.



Animals who give unconditional love (as long as you feed them.)

Shelter, food, clothing and comfort in heat or cold.

Medical care and treatments.
Good enough health!

Transportation to wander on this earth.

A computer and smart phone to share with others.

A mind with questions.

Training and education


May you have a blessed Thanksgiving.
Hi from Tampa!

Pat's market table

 The booth besides ours is a honey vendor...very popular because he gives out free samples!

That last market

So much joy
So much sadness

And luminous light and warmth in the sunshine!
Bette Potter Jones, Marsha Cozart, Cathy Babula

Today the Mud Buddies remember all this summer, as well as the five prior ones.  And we had a visit from a former Mud Buddy as well.
Barbara Rogers and Pat Levi

Tomorrow I'll share the set up and the beautiful pots.

Barbara's Market Table

Out in the world

There they are, my little babies, all grown up and living independently.

Thanks to my friend (who tried to get out of the shot, but the edge of her is there!) for taking a picture of the bathroom caddy which I made, as well as the little dog tumbler.  Unfortunately the glazes won't match, since we've been having some Celadon problems...but they are close enough to coexist on my friend's counter.

Thanks so much for sharing the photo!

Something's gonna be cooking

Yesterday "dear blogger" wouldn't let me post so I hope today I'm fortunate.

These 3 casseroles are made the same...Speckled Brownstone stoneware clay, with interiors in Satin White glaze and exteriors in Bermuda Green (a mix of the mason stain of the same name with Satin White glaze).

The smallest one has a lid which doesn't fit well.  I should be glad that it's too small rather than too large, I guess.  I'll sell it as a second, if I'm lucky.

The living room is covered with pottery, being priced and wrapped and packed.  I've got the Tailgate Holiday Market tomorrow morning 10-1...same place in Black Mountain behind the First Baptist Church under the trees off Montreat Rd.

Two more sales are coming up in the first weekend of December.  I'm skipping anything to do with sales over the Thanksgiving weekend...am seeing some family members after a long time missing them.  But if I see any pretty pottery, I'll take some photos and share with you!
