Summer comes to a close

Posted in News on August 17, 2016 by mikeknox

Summer is coming to a close and we packed the summer full! With the help of some friends we prepped a large section of the studio grounds and now have a Fall harvest coming in. We will be selling squash and pumpkins both at the studio and a local farmers market. Mother and daughter are quite excited about this.

The pots from our Spring firing are almost gone although there are still a few jewels in the gallery. You should stop in! Clay is made and ready to be pugged for the next round of work and as Fall approaches this also means wood cutting for the studio stove and kiln.

As most of you know I have a love of old cars and motorcycles. The garage area of the studio is just that. Old car projects and of course gas station stuff as pictured below. Memphis and I restored an advertising pole and a tire leak tester. These were a couple great finds to add to the collection and the ambiance of the studio garage.   studio cropspring firetire testpole

Spring firing

Posted in News on April 16, 2016 by mikeknox

We our firing the kiln this weekend! A much anticipated firing for many, including myself. I have a great crew lined up from friends to family and I can’t forget Montana my pup dog. I have to say it seems a little odd not having my recently deceased dog Madison around trying to eat hot coals out of the mouse holes of the kiln. I’ll be up until Sunday night. Stop in during the day if you are out and about. The kiln is certainly a theatrical play of sorts with all of its various parts from start to finish. Special thanks goes out to all of my helpers!
