Jug from the front of the first chamber
We were inspired to make tumblers after Christy broke one of her favorite pots--
a tumbler from Jeff Dean at Dean and Martin Pottery--and needed a replacement!
We were really happy with our new matte white glaze. The new blue glaze wasn't so fantastic, but we'll save that for another post...

The first go-round with the chatter tool on a large bowl.
We were getting low on mugs in the gallery, but we are totally re-stocked again!
Joe made a sweet new teapot shape for this firing.
The first firing of the third chamber for earthenware was full of
educational pots, interesting potential for both clay and glazes, and a few gems.

After the excitement of Clay in May is over, we'll give you a more thorough report of the firing and what we learned from our local material glaze and clay tests.
Until then...we know all of you have marked your calendars for Clay in May,
and we look forward to seeing you this weekend!
