after all that work of wood firing pots, it's time for the sales! most of the potters around here have 2 sales a year, one after each firing. first weekend of june and first weekend of december. it's a great time to ride out in the country and see the potter's studios and their latest work. i went to geoff picket's, where i helped in the firing, because i had spied a couple of pieces when they came out of the kiln that i really wanted. the pieces i wanted were still available, so they went home with me and i also got a large garden pots my mom requested, so happy all around.
