2014 Michiana Pottery Tour

I had an opportunity to be a part of the Michiana Pottery Tour this year. It took place on September 27th and 28th. I set up with 5 other potters in Goshen, the third stop on the map. We were located at Northern Indiana Pottery Supply, owned by Moey Hart.

I hauled my booth over Friday evening and set up my tent, tables and shelves. When I returned home my wife helped me finish price everything and pack up all the pots. Saturday I drove all the pots over and set them up and got ready to go. We set up our booths under two rows of big trees right beside the pond. It was a great environment.

2014 Middlebury Fall Festival

I hauled my pots and pottery wheel over to Middlebury for the annual Fall Festival on September 19th and 20th. It is the second year that I’ve demonstrated and sold pots. This year was even better than the first. Below is a photo that made it into The Paper.

Clay Studio Notes: July 2014

Ahhhh, I love summer break. I’ve been using as much of my time off as possible in the clay studio. I just completed a round of glazing and the kiln just passed 1000 degrees. I should have enough stuff for a 2nd firing if I get some of the big bowls glazed. I’ve actually been so busy doing other things that I put this blog entry on hold for almost two months. It was originally going to be Clay Studio Notes from May 2014.

Garage Sales!

It’s no secret that I love garage sales. Mostly because I can usually find something useful for, well, garage sale prices. Here are the latest items that I dug up from a couple different locations.

Glaze Fire Results from May

Here are a few pots from the last glaze fire. ^6 oxidation. Stoneware: Warm Brown or Buff Stoneware by Amaco.

Still trying a lot of different glaze combinations and trying decals on different glazes.

I’ll be glazing another load in the next few days. I hope to start concentrating on a few glazes and combinations that I like in hopes of a more defined body of work.

Pottery Weekend

Apparently I took a couple months off from the blog. But now I should have enough content ideas to keep me posting regularly for a while. You can also see my latest activities on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. Anyway, on with the post!

What would your dream weekend look like? A while (months!) ago I experienced something that was pretty darn close for a serious hobbyist potter (like myself at this point). To any full time potter it was probably just another day at the office but for me it was something that I look forward to in the future if I ever go “full time” clay.

Rothshank Woodfire with Troy and Moey

On Friday (May 2nd) after school I stopped at the Rothshank wood kiln and found Troy Bungart and Moey Hart on duty. They were trying to get the back chamber temperature up. I sat and chatted with them for a few hours.
