|My own kiln, recently fired, November 2015|
|Freshly-thrown pieces of pottery.|
I have been intermittently making pottery and finally fired my own kiln this past month. Firing my own kiln was an amazing experience just from the standpoint of filling the kiln with all of my own pottery and doing an activity that I so thoroughly enjoy.

Below are some photos I made of pottery I hope to get listed on Etsy this week. Stay tuned.
One of my conclusions after taking the above photographs was that I like the Farmall tractor as a background. I like the color contrast and the linear features.

My work at the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA) continues, and I moved into a position in the research department. Installation of the William C. and Susan S. Mariner Southern Ceramics Gallery at MESDA was completed about one month ago. When MESDA's director, Robert Leath, said that this is the leading exhibition of historical southern ceramics, he wasn't kidding.
