On a recent trip to Seagrove, North Carolina a couple of weeks ago I visited as many potteries as I could fit in. The first couple of days we stayed in our motorhome at Whynot Pottery. I couldn't resist getting a tile and a small vase from Meredith and Mark's gallery.
When I got home I opened up my package and inside I found Meredith had included these earrings she made. Wasn't that sweet. Thanks Meredith.
The next day Meredith took us to visit several potteries in the area and I got this soul pot at Michael Mahan's gallery. Mary gave us a tour while Michael was busy firing the kiln with Levi. Gary and I both love the color turquoise and I have always admired Michael's soul pots, so this pot spoke to both of us.
I had to curb my appetite in case I wanted to buy something at Clay and Blogs Show in Southern Pines. By the way if you're nearby, there's still time to go and see the work and perhaps find a special pot or two. There aren't many places you can see so many artist's work from around the world all in one place. Up next a few more potteries we visited while we were in Seagrove.
