Unloading David Stuempfle's Kiln


Mary and I spent Sunday helping unload David Stuempfle's wood-fired kiln, stopping every now and then to pose for a photograph for the photographer for Martha Stewart's magazine. There were some real beauties in there, "show-stoppers" as Jeff Dean says. I'll post some pictures of some of the pieces I made at a later date.

After unloading, we had a wonderful meal of fresh NC shrimp, spuds, greens and freshly cut bamboo shoots from somewhere in Robbins. Nancy Gottovi was a great host in her and David's home as we all sat and peeled the shrimp. The bamboo shoots were lovely, Nancy.
