We got married yesterday.
It was epic.

A staircase full of potters from last nights preview party.
Having our pottery family all together in one place can s always one of my favorite things about the @pottersmarketinvitational

All set up and ready for the @pottersmarketinvitational tomorrow. General admission at 10am. If your in the Charlotte area, we hope to see you there.
It’s been a huge honor to have an image of my work as the face of the show’s promotional material. It’s very humbling to see it everywhere, especially on these 7ft tall banners!
Thanks to everyone who works so hard to make this show happen and to all the artists and all the collectors who come out and appreciate what we do.
I love you all.
The best friends a person could ask for.
Thanks for an great weekend and an epic float trip.

My friend Andy sent me this photo yesterday from our time in Cambodia.
It’s hard to believe that it was almost 3 years ago and in less than 2 weeks I’ll be married to the woman in the window.

Getting into the details.
The work is cleaning up promisingly.
More to come tomorrow.

Pots in the yard.
We unloaded the kiln on Monday afternoon. It seems really good, at least as far as I can tell after 3 days of looking at it all.
So begins the long process of cold-working everything and trying to ascertain what is a success and what is not.
Looking forward to the @pottersmarketinvitation

Charcoal introduction in the second chamber.
We just finished up a really smooth three day burn.
I’m grateful to have such a spectacular crew. It makes it all worthwhile to do it together.
