Open!



Well, but for the technicality of an unfinished set of stairs, which we will finish and have inspected tomorrow. Our first customers today were more than happy to climb the concrete blocks leading towards the porch. It was great to have customers--total stranger customers!--on our first weekend.





We have just enough pots to fill the new shelves, so it looks like another firing will be in order within the next month or two. Joe has been pulling up our home-mixed clay as it dries, so hopefully the next firing will not be a bloating disaster. And for the record, Poached Eggs blew past the other hideous contestants to dominate the Bloat Contest.
