Big pot. Big Kiln. Big time busy getting everything made for the upcoming @pottersmarketinvitational
Every year I bring my very best work to this show, and I always try to make a couple pieces that really push the limits of what I feel capable of.
Of course, for anyone who knows ceramics, now is not the time to count chickens. Making and decorating is sorta the easy part of big work. Fingers crossed for the firing!!!

My love Emily left me these flowers in the studio this evening. They didn’t make the cut for the market tomorrow but they certainly made my evening.
We’ve been working double time the past few weeks to get everything ready for the upcoming firing. We will have lots of new work for the Potters Market Invitational at the Mint Museum September 9th… and probably a few flowers too.

Ya’ll check your mailboxes. Good tidings came in the mail today. Fingers crossed for my brothers and sisters in Carolina clay. Thanks to the @pottersmarketinvitational and the @themintmuseum for having me back to the best retail ceramics show in the country. I look forward to all the smiling faces of friends and the long lines of people queued up to purchase pottery.

It’s an amazing sight. People lined up to buy pottery as far as the eye can see. The @pottersmarketinvitational is over and today we are reflecting on what a truly special event it is. To see this many people lined up to buy pottery blows my mind. It reminds me that what I do is important and valued…and that working in North Carolina is essential to my success. The level of connoisseurship, enthusiasm, and appreciation for ceramics here is unparalleled in my opinion. A big heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this possible. #thankyou #pottersmarketinvitational #mintmuseum #mintshow #nclove #apotterslife #ceramics
