We found some time yesterday to get up high. Even though we did get caught in a pretty epic thunderstorm and had to go door to door trying to find some oil for one of our cars… I would call this day a success. Certainly a day I won’t soon forget.
On Max Patch with my Australian family.

I don’t know how this conference could be going better. It’s been amazing.
We’ve had some really great participants and wonderful teaching moments like this wadding and packing demo moment that @mattwegleitner managed to capture.
THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR COMING!

All the doors are up and we will light the kilns tonight at 9pm.
It’s been a big push to get to this point. I’m eternally grateful for everyone who helped make this happen.
Especially our invited artists @tomalward @davidpetersceramics @alixb.alixb @jkhappenings @dennygerwin @ridgelinepottery @slockwood737 @kevin_lips
And my assistants @hollomoncookceramics @micahmakespots @willdickertceramics @mattwegleitner
AND MOST OF ALL MY AMAZING PARTNER @carolinaflowers_ WITHOUT WHOM NONE OF THIS WOULD BE POSSIBLE.
