Presentation and Larkspur Report

My talk to the NC Pottery Collectors Guild went well Friday night.  They were a really welcoming group and I think they enjoyed my presentation.  It was neat to see the NC State Craft Center.  Wow, they have an amazing facility.

Being back at NCSU was nice.  It was cool to see my old stomping grounds.  Sarah and I met up with Kevin, a college friend of mine after the presentation and had a visit.  Of course I picked one of the loudest sports bars around.  Still the company was great as well as the beer.

Afterwards, Sarah and I went over to Hillsborough St. and had a beer in Mitch's Tavern which has been there for quite a long time.  I had my first legal beer in Mitch's.  The place hasn't changed much at all.

(Sorry no pics of any of this, bad blogger!)

On Saturday we headed up to visit Jen Mecca at the Larkspur Party.  Below is an image of Jen's booth.  She was having a great sale.

Jen had made a lot of these little houses.  This was the only one left when we  arrived after lunch.

There was lots of great art, clay, paintings, jewelry, sculpture, wood and even plants for sale.

It was good to catchup with our friends Blaine Avery, Ronan Peterson, Laura Weant Avery, and Brad Tucker just to name a few.

I had planned on going down to Seagrove for the Cousins in Clay event but we got on the road too late Saturday and just couldn't make another stop.  It's nice to be home today.   I have pots to glaze and should have them fired by the end of the week.

Thanks for checking in!
