Seagrove pots and kilns, Part Trois

OK, a few more shots from the Seagrove/"Clay and Blogs" adventure last week in North Carolina. I'm trying to get as many different places in here as I can, but as you can see from the photo of Hitomi Shibata, cute babies often take priority over pots.
And ... drum roll ... the photo captions are: At top, Hitomi tends the fire and the boy.
Below that, Paul Jessop's salt pig got a good going-over by guests at the opening of "Clay and Blogs." These two spent a good deal of time picking it up, turning it over and trying to figure out how it works. Pru Morrison of Brisbane sent the six figures of her piece called "The Tea Lady." Very interesting stuff. The bottom two images are from Mark and Meredith Heywood's Whynot Pottery - wonderful vases and then Dee standing in the Heywoods' well-stocked and friendly gallery.

Heywood's gallery is as good as a candy store! Beautiful. What a great trip...

That Dee is as cute as can be- forget the pots take that lady home!
Oh- right you did!
Thanks for "shooting" us!

I did, Meredith. She navigated. Oh, right, you knew that. Thanks, Anna. That gallery is loaded with pots. Should be loaded with buyers, too.
