Seagrove Potters for Peace-August 14

24 potteries will hold a sale of specially signed vessels to help Greg Mortenson build schools in impoverished areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan as a long-term solution to terrorism. (Sorry - no early sales!)

Each pottery will produce a unique item, specially signed for this event. The pottery will be for sale at the individual shops on Saturday, August 14 from 9am to 5pm. There will be no early sales, but any remaining items can be ordered by email or telephone on Monday, August 16. Some potteries will also have copies of Mortenson's books for sale.

I have posted my dove pictures earlier and will have a few more that are being fired tomorrow in Chinese blue!! I hope I glazed and placed them in good spots! They will all be avaiailable at $24 and there will be the option of buying a 16" steel neckwire with magnetic clasp or 16" satin cord with sterling clasp for another $6. the doves are clay with a sterling silver handmade bail on back. And they are stamped SPP and JLK.

Beth has done a great job on this, she is passionate and detailed and I hope you will stop in at Cady Clay Works. We also have a Facebook page and I encourage everyone with pieces to post a picture there and for you, faithful readers, to go have a look! And come and see us on the 14th! http://www.seagrovepottersforpeace.com/
The Randolph Friends of the Library will hold a community discussion about Afghanistan and Mortenson’s work on Tuesday, Aug. 17, 2010, at 7pm, at the Randolph Arts Guild, 123 Sunset Ave in downtown Asheboro, NC (about 12 miles from Seagrove, just off Hwy. 220). The discussion will be led by Dr. Jeff Jones, associate professor of Russian and world history at UNC-Greensboro. All ages are welcome. Copies of Mortenson’s books and a variety of pottery vessels will be for sale. Change will be collected for “Pennies for Peace”. Refreshments will be served.
