Three (not so little) Pigs

It's crunch time around here. We had orders that needed to be done and the cold weather put us behind a few days. It isn't that we won't fire in cold weather, after all, I am from New Hampshire, and I am accustomed to firing in snow and frigid temps!  The cold here in the south kept us dealing with frozen pipes and all that jazz... this cabin that we live in was not designed for below freezing temperatures. 
Since I had escaped Seagrove to attend the workshop in Charlotte, Jeff was left to load the kiln and fire it on Sunday. I glazed most of my pots before I left. We had a really fun order that needed to be shipped this week....

Piggy Jars in graduated sizes!

The smallest is the standard salt pig and the other two are one and two quarts. I love it that someone is so fond of pigs that they want a litter of them sitting on their counter!

Tomorrow we are off to Shelby, NC to set up our display for the "Treasures of the Earth" exhibition and sale. The show runs for a month. If you are in the area be sure to stop in at the Cleveland County Arts Council. Reception is tomorrow evening, 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
