All the doors are up and we will light the kilns tonight at 9pm.

I would just like to take a moment to acknowledge and celebrate the community that surrounds me and all the people who have worked so hard to make the Mountain PreHEAT a reality.
You are why I do this and your love and support is the most amazing and beautiful thing.
The challenges of organizing an event like this are very real.
Most days I feel like I’m about to have a nervous breakdown… and this morning I almost did. I got an extremely hurtful text message from someone out of the blue. It shook me to my core.
At the same time as it was happening, people were rallying around me and working to solve the problems that face us this day.
For that I am so grateful. For everyone who has contributed to this event in whatever way they could, both big and small, I appreciate your support. You know who you are. You make it all worth it.
THANK YOU.
