Jugtown Holiday Kiln Opening and Carolina Arts

Tom and Linda Starland have been supporters of Seagrove for a long time, through their Carolina Arts publication, which covers the Arts and events in the Carolinas.

They were a media sponsor for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters, for which we are very appreciative! Tom has written a several part account leading up to and following the Celebration. Please read his account of it here.

Jugtown is holding their annual Holiday Kiln Opening on Saturday. They have a wood kiln that was just fired, so you know there will be special pieces! People come early (some by 5am!!) to line up and get numbers. The museum opens early with coffee, tea and some tasty treats. The fireplace will be going and it is a nice social start to the morning.

I will be making up some of the miniature pot necklaces for the opening, fresh out of the wood kiln! Today I am going to focus on birds in silver with pottery since I have been doodling birds while being put on hold on various calls. Hopefully something good will come from it and you will see them on Sat!
