Fall Splendor

We are having fabulous fall weather here in Seagrove, NC. Cool nights with warm days in the low 70's. Perfect temperatures for working and sleeping. Yesterday the door came down from the kiln. We took a few pots out that were cool enough to handle. Today we will unload the rest. Jeff and I did a couple of collaborative pots that came out really awesome. One is the ginkgo vase in the photo above. You'll also notice that my pink geraniums with the trailing white and blue flowers is looking great... better than it did all summer! And it wouldn't be fall without mums.

There were lots of salt pigs in this firing. Lately they have been outselling the piggy banks on Etsy. I have a few extra in this firing so that I can have some in stock and ready to ship. Today it's back to piggy bank assembly. I have had a break from them for a couple of weeks and I am looking forward to getting back at it.


  1. Pretty fall display! We have been enjoying some especially beautiful weather.

  2. Gorgeous ginko vase.
    We had enough frost to finish the dahlias. Now it has warmed up again. Guess this is Indian Summer!

  3. I am not sure I really understand the usefulness of salt pigs, but then again, I don't use much salt...

    1. Lots of cooks are using coarse specialty salts. I guess they like to keep it on the counter to have handy while cooking. Reach in with fingers or a spoon and grab a pinch.


Don't be shy, talk to me... I won't know your out there if you don't!
