R.D. Mahan Kiln Opening and Turkey Roast

Come celebrate with us at our annual kiln opening this coming weekend, Oct. 5 and 6, all day long. We're unloading the wood kiln Saturday morning. It'll be filled with a variety of pieces created with my local clay, a rich dark clay body. Many of the pieces are adorned with my trees and tree limbs. It's up to the flame to decorate these pieces.

We're serving organic coffee and scones for breakfast, leek and potato soup and roasted turkey, as well as Mary's colcannon, an Irish potato dish. We'll be demonstrating on the wheel throughout both days, and the studio is stocked with new creations by Michael, Levi and Chelsea Mahan.
