Morning coffee on the patio is done for the year.
Thankfully we have a reprieve from moving our kiln until we fire again in the next week or so. I don't think our bodies could have done it this week, which was the original plan. We are quite stressed out being kiln-less during this holiday season. Typically we would be making work and firing up until the last minute. The timing of things just didn't work out for us. The wonderful thing about this community is that we have had many offers to fire gas kilns at other potteries. We just might have to take them up on it.
The Celebration of Seagrove Potters show was down for us this year... we had lots of small sales, the big stuff didn't sell. Fingers are crossed that we can make up for it in our own gallery. We need some good sales to get through the winter. Luckily, winter isn't as long here as it is in New Hampshire.
I have to keep looking on the bright side!
