Micah hands Tom a brick.
I love this moment. And this day. My heart is so full from all the help and support of my awesome friends.
It’s been a loooooong slog getting ready for this conference, and even though it’s 5 days away and we are still finishing the new kiln… I feel like we hit a major turning point today. It’s totally happening.
There will be things that won’t get done but the big projects feel attainable to finish.
One more big day and then it’s all details from here on out.

Second to arrive, following the brief touchdown of @ridgelinepottery, in preparation for the Mountain PreHEAT. The PreHeat is sold out but you can still get tickets for the main @woodfirenc event.

This image doesn’t do this work justice but I’m going to put it up anyway.
I’ve been dreaming about how to manifest this idea for a while now.
How to showcase what the clay looks like in the pit. How to take a slice of that and bring it inside and to more people.
This is my most recent iteration. Wet clay straight from the ground and jammed into enclosed glass cases that I built.
It’s better than this image suggests.
Come to WoodfireNC and see it for yourself.
