Stone Jugs and the like.

Thursday’s Convocation at Snow College featured Escalante writer Jana Richman. She stopped by the shop with her husband Steve Defa and our own local farmer/proffesor Steve Peterson. The visit was pleasant but way too short…..some other time.
Making some pottery this week has been a nice change form the post surgery honeydoo’s and assorted fall chores I have been consumed by lately. I have been working my way through some jugs, mugs, jars and bowls.

In hand thrown pottery I can’t find any surface I like as much as the freshly thrown or turned clay. All of my firing and glazing it to the end of finding something that aproximates that freshness.

My holiday sales are on November 27,28 and December 5 this year. I’ll be working like a Beaver for the next few weeks to get the ware out on time. I love this.

    Nice ones! I have to agree with your love of the freshly thrown pot. The effect is even more intensified with a table full of freshly thrown pots!

    Me too Joe, I’d rather look at a wareboard full of green pots than just about anything. Its right up there with unloading a kiln.

    I am in need of a good musical jug, for a jug band. Any advice?
