The kiln reached 2175 degrees at the same time we were watching the eclipse! And the mugs, dishes, tiles, mud daubers, leaf dishes, and more truly eclipsed previous firings. I’m increasing my supply for the fall craft fairs–don’t forget, the Gallery will be closed from October 2 until December, when we will have the super yearly Gallery Reception and Solstice Event, on December 23, complete with wine, mead, and Sequatchie Cove Creamery cheeses.
In the meantime, come and check out our new work. i will try to get some photos up on the web tomorrow. Right now, Johnny is finishing up the beautiful cherry wood backings for some very lovely tiles. He will be working tomorrow also, and i will be making yet more mugs.
Patrick is back and will be here to tell you all about how he makes the kaleidoscopes and electroformed sculptures, but he will be leaving next week for Dragon Con in Atlanta.
We will be open at 10 am Saturday and Sunday, for the Gallery and the Nature Trails, but on Saturday we will be closing early, about 3 pm, to attend the Southern Brewers Festival in Chattanooga. We will again be open till 5 on Sunday.
