This year has been a lot… and I’ve been feeling it recently.
The jail. The brick factory. The farm. The land. The house. The pottery. The Clayspace. The woodfire conference. Penland. The new studio. The emails… It has felt like the type of year that we will look back on and say “damn… that year was insane…”
We do love it and I can’t image not doing any of it… but I’m ready for so winter hibernation for real.
@clarkhodgin made this picture of me in the jail earlier this year. I felt tired then too…
Maybe I was better at hiding it.

The brick factory has been a huge success with over 2000 bricks produced so far… but all things must come to an end.
The factory will be open Friday and Saturday from 11-5 for the next 3 weeks. Then production at the Old Marshall Jail site will cease.
We still have our programs with local schools and a couple of special events planned, but the main public face of the project will end November 18th.
That still leaves you 6 days to come out and add your voice to the amazing tapestry of voices that have participated in the project so far.
Check out communitybrick.org for more info.

Jamming in the jail with @galenholland
We’ve been having a steady stream of our creative friends come and use the space recently.
It’s been awesome to hear such great music emitting out of the jail and to see the space used in such a positive way.

The mayor came and made a brick today! Everyone is getting involved. The response to the Old Marshall Brick Project has been outstanding… but it can always be better. Don’t miss out on this. We will be running the factory into November. Check out communitybrick.org for scheduling.
Thanks to @lilunkle for running the factory today.
