Picking up a couple bundles of sticks for sidestoke wood for the firing next week. I’ve been getting the edgings from this mill for 10 years now. They still don’t charge me any money for it, but I bring a dozen donuts every time for the boys just to keep the wheels greased. #sidestokewood #ceramics #community #woodfire #woodkiln #sawmill

I’m excited for the start of the new kickball season and stoked to get the Crystal Ballers back together. No matter how busy things get in the studio and in life it’s important to take the time to be a little ridiculous, play sports, a drink some beers with friends. #crystalballers #adultkickball #community #lifestyle

Introducing Gabs Wallington, an amazing young Australian maker, my new studio assistant, and the newest bartender at the Wedge Brewing Company. I met Gabs at the On the Edge of the Shelf International Wood this past spring and she was keen to come spend a year working and learning ceramics in the states. It’s my first time taking on a full time assistant, so it’s a big step for me and responsibility of taking a young maker on is something I take very seriously. I could not have asked for a better person than Gabs. We have hit the ground running in the studio since she arrived. I fully expected her to need a couple of days the rest and get acclimated after her journey, but she would not have it. In her own words after I suggested she might take the first couple days off from the studio “Josh, I came here to work, not to put socks on caterpillars” which I guess is an Australian phrase for not messing about. Gabs certainly not here to mess around. #ceramics #australianstudioassistant #pottery #clay #woodfire #ontheedgeoftheshelf
