Just a little update:
Last week we passed the building inspection! We have one more inspection before i get my Beaufort business license. In the mean time, i am throwing, trimming and waiting. The shelves are getting really full! I am so excited to be back where i belong doing what i'm supposed to do. I hope to be able to fire my stockpile of pots soon. Oh, the waiting is such torture!!! In the meantime, i remind myself to take a deep breath and have a little patience :).

I returned from the world's fastest trip to Fines Creek last week with the rest of my studio...more or less. After making a trip to Highwater (oh, highwater i will miss thee!) to stock up on supplies, I made the six hour drive back to the coast with over 2000 pounds of ceramic glaze material, clay and various studio equipments. Our poor suburban!!!
Here in Beaufort, I have had my new studio for a month now. Feeling mostly settled, I am making pots and excited to get my "groove" back. I am waiting on the city to issue my privilage license and all will be officially official! Its been so exciting. The neighborhood has welcomed me. A steady stream of folks has dropped in to say "hi". I have mets lots of people and am amazed by the support and positive responses I have received.
Also, I hope to soon have my kiln hooked up. I need to do something with all this greenware piling up on the shelves. I am excited to move forward with my exploration into electric oxidation glaze firing! My brain is overflowing with ideas! Now, if someone could tell me about an a washed wood glaze recipe for cone 6, i'll be good to go... hehe.
For now...cheers! If you are in the area drop in.
