Newest Work from the Manabigama

It's busy around here.

We've got to pack up for the 15th Annual Catawba Valley Pottery & Antiques Festival  held this weekend in Hickory. I have 40 more foot-soaking bowls to make for the Andez Hotel in New York City, and we want to fire another load of wood-fired pots before the upcoming Celebration of Spring in Seagrove in April.

Still, we managed to fire the Manabigama (our wood-fired kiln) last Sunday. Levi's out of the country, so it was Mary and I who stoked the kiln for about 13 hours this time. Here's a few pots that came out of that firing:

Ohio Clay Slip
