New Color

I've fired three loads of pots in the last couple of weeks, and have spent lots of time sorting, packing, shipping, and delivering. There's fresh pots at Toe River Crafts, both TRAC galleries, Deep Water Pottery in Ocracoke, Gallery of the Mountains at the Grove Park Inn, and as of yesterday Boone's Creek Pottery in Johnson City. Whew

I've been working on a new glaze combination. It's the same base as my dark blue glaze with a cobalt accent. I haven't managed to take any 'good' pictures of it. And it's the hardest color I've ever encountered to get accurate. So I hope you'll excuse these quick snap shots.

For now I'm not planning to put this in any of the shops, so you'll have to get in touch with me if you'd like to add this color to your collection. Maybe in the spring if I can get enough in inventory it will show up at Toe River Crafts.


We were all standing in the yard a few minutes ago and happened to look up. This rainbow was directly over our heads! I've never seen anything like it. There was a little haze beside it, but for the most part the sky is clear this afternoon.

I actually got a few shots of the boy since there was other things to pay attention to other than grabbing for the camera.

And I finally got a shot of my latest finished knit. Top down without a pattern, I just tried it on a million times as I went. It's made of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. My hands didn't like the cotton yarn at all, and I would have finished it a month sooner if it didn't make my hurt for a week any time I worked on it for more than 20 minutes at a time.
