Such a fantastic weekend at the Hewitt pottery’s 100th firing celebration. We got to eat brunch at our friends Lisa and Dave’s Small B&B Cafe and Folk Art Museum. Simply the best time with the best folks.
Rainbow over Marshall.
The island in Marshall flooded again yesterday. Second 50 year flood in 4 months. Total bummer.
It’s been a super tough week for me and Emily.
The rainbow felt like a good reminder that beautiful things can come out of unfortunately circumstances.
What a difference a year makes!!
Last spring I was working on a massive drainage and grading project at our house. I had to tear everything up and regrade our entire yard to put in pipe and establish positive drainage away from our house.
One year later things are dry and the grass is looking good!
Springtime at the land. Cherry tree looking good with fire cauldron and sculptural fence. The party plaza in full effect.

My mom sent me this photo a while back. I just found it while looking for something else.
It’s good when the firing coincides with the Tulip harvest.

Time lapse of @kristeneasters and @t.glosby working the kiln on the second overnight.
We finished the firing last night at the very reasonable time of 9:30pm.
It was one of the smoothest burns to date and after 12 years and almost 50 firings… we are really starting the get things figured out?
Thanks to the rest of the crew. @gillandotypottery @nicklistoceramics @juliecantwellceramics and of course my awesome wife @carolinaflowers_ for helping to make it happen.
