Call this the "The Daylily Kiln-Opening"
We'll keep up our every other week firing and kiln-opening schedule Saturday, Aug. 1, with more new pots, which I am currently glazing and loading into the kiln. I'll fire tomorrow, Friday, starting at about 8:30 a.m., and hope for an uncomplicated temperature rise to cone 10.
This firing has mugs, teabowls, plates, flower vases and bowls. Many of the teabowls will be side-fired, perched on wadding-filled scallop shells. (See last post.)
This is a good opportunity to see not only new pots but also the stunning array of daylilies and other flowers that are blooming in Dee's gardens. In spite of a relatively cool and certainly rainy summer, so far, the flowers are at their height and very lovely. They put my simple pots to shame, in fact.
We'll be open for business at 10 a.m., with coffee and something to eat, then we'll open the kiln at 11 and remain open until 3 p.m. Come on down.
Driving Directions: From Route 151, enter Boxberry Hill Road at the blinking traffic light at the intersection of 151, Boxberry Hill and Sam Turner, we're on the right, at the corner of Brady Drive, with a "Pottery" sign out front. Park in the driveway on Brady Drive. Coming from Falmouth via Sandwich Road, take a left on Hatchville Road at the Falmouth Jewish Congregation, pass Coonamessett Farm and bear right at the next fork. Hatchville Road dead ends at Boxberry Hill Road. Turn left at the stop sign and we're the second house on the left.
