Hello and HAppY New YeAr!!...just a quick post to start the year off right. Yesterday I got an email from a person in Australia that bought a couple pieces from me and he sent me the link to his own blog, where he wrote a really cool post. If you click the link to his blog, you can see some of his favorite new wood fired pieces...and awww shucks, my bottle is one of them.
The funny thing is, he also has work on this same post by two of my friends. Josh Floyd lives nearby and is a regular fixture in our little pottery community here in the middle of nowhere just north of Pittsburgh,PA. If you have a second check out Josh's blog and see some of his good looking pots. The other guy is Justin Lambert...I met Justin this past summer at Chautauqua. He came to teach for a couple weeks and we had a whole lotta fun drinking beer and cooking Italian sausages and corn on the cob in between firing kilns and making stuff. I have been following Justin on his facebook page as he recently tore down his modified bourry box kiln and built and fired his new Anagama kiln. I really like Justin's work too and you should see the new pieces coming from that kiln! Like me, both these guys have Etsy sites and if you are in the market for a nice wood fired mug(and maybe you already own your very own Kyle Houser mug)you should check out their shops!
Here's to a productive 2010 for all!
