Pottery Tour Tapenade

Olive tapenade in a wood-fired shino-glazed bowl

Claire Ruggles, director for the Northern Moore Family Resource Center in Robbins, made several delicious recipes including this tapenade which was served to participants in this past Sunday's pottery tour, a fundraiser for the center. The dish was delicious, as was the pesto cheese loaf she made.

I demonstrated making my large tree platters and Levi showed everyone how he carves trees through a white slip into the dark clay body on some of his vases. It was a great afternoon.

Ted, our resident turtle, even came out to see what all the fuss was about. You can see him in the lower right corner of the picture at the right.

Also in the picture are my brother and his daughter who graduated from Duke law school this weekend. It was a busy weekend.

We ended the day by eating some fantastic pizza made by Levi, which included an olive tapenade topped pizza. It was a great weekend. Thanks to all the volunteers that helped out with the pottery tour. Six other pottery shops participated in this year's fundraiser.
