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.

Sarah, I love this too. I love anything that has cobalt blue! I think the soup mugs sound great as well. I must make another order that includes this pitcher soon! Happy autumn! Cynthia Thompson
