After leaving Kline's on Saturday I took winding NC Hwy 80
over to visit Bandana Pottery
where Michael Hunt and Naomi Dalglish were having their Pottery Sale. Shawn Ireland was showing with them.
I've known Michael and Shawn for some years now and have always loved the way they approach clay and make pots. They both make good use of local materials and fire with wood. Their pots have an ancient look to them.

I should have taken more images but I was too busy catching up with everyone, looking at all the great pots and eating watermelon. I ended up buying a small Ram dish from Shawn. I could have left with a lot more but I'm on a bit of a pottery budget these days. I didn't get a pic of Michael Hunt either.
Here is the Ram Dish along side my Sheep. Ha.
