I’d like to put a HUGE shout out to my boy @willdickertceramics for getting married yesterday in our gorgeous Virginia homeland. Aside from being one of the funniest people I know and having a great demeanor, will is also one of the top up and coming makers in our adopted homeland of North Carolina. He is an integral part of the Mountain PreHEAT team and we will certainly be raising a glass to him at the @woodfirenc conference.
Here’s to you buddy.

16 hands ritual.
The morning of the tour I wake up early and put out all the signs leading to my mum’s house. I drive the same route every time and put the signs out in the same places every year. My route takes me through town and I always stop at @redroostercoffeeroaster to get a coffee. I look forward to it. This year my latte looked so good I had to take a picture of it!!!
If your coming to @16.hands your this year, I would fully suggest you stop at the Black Water Loft and get you one!

Great opening last night for the “Connected by Fire” exhibition at @bluespiral1
A big thank you to my man Jordan and the whole Bluespiral team for all they’re hard work and great vision.
You make us all look good… especially these @bandanapottery pieces.
We will be having a special second reception to open the Mountain PreHEAT of the @woodfirenc conference on June 1st and an artist talk with @ridgelinepottery @ericknochestudio and @bizen_kazuya on June 7th at 1pm.
If you get a chance come check it out. It really is one of the strongest woodfired shows I’ve ever seen. (Obviously I’m a little biased… but it really is)

Sneak peek at “Connected by Fire” at @bluespiral1
Opening this Thursday from 5-8.
I’m very excited about how the show has come together. It’s been a lot of work but the reward is seeing all these incredible woodfired pieces together in the same room.
