So. This happened last night. My cousin Trevor wearing the ‘professional’ wrestling costume kit I included in our family white elephant gift exchange. Knowing Trevor, I actually envisioned him when I put it together and as things often do, it worked out that he picked my gift. He completely rocked the ‘masked marauder’ wrestling costume like a true champ all night long. #maskedmarauder #adventure #apotterslife #texaslaketimes #family

Fellow maker and wild clay enthusiast @zach_sierke in front of a cliff of clay at Stedman’s Landing in Fairhope, Alabama. I had an absolute fantastic day with Zach touring old kiln sites, pulling pre-civil war shards out of creeks, and exploring the rich and diverse clay deposits of the bay. #zachsierke #wildclay #adventure #community #ceramics #claymountain

I left my childhood home of Floyd today with a heart full of appreciation and gratitude for the place that raised me. Floyd… You will always be my home. Your gravel roads endlessly etched in my memory, your people always in my heart, and your fields and forests forever with me on my journey. You nurtured me, taught me, and showed me how to be. You will always hold my most special memories in your mountains, having born witness to my biggest changes and most formative moments you will always be my home. #floydcounty #home #community #apotterslife #appreciation

Today I moved 47 drums containing over 10,000 pounds of silica and feldspar (two of my all time favorite minerals) to my land in Madison county. The materials didn’t cost me any money, thanks to this guy Tom, my newest ceramic engineer friend. It was a long day, and the old adage “free shit ain’t free” certainly holds true but it still is as cheap as you can find. #haulingmaterials #ceramics #apotterslife #community
