I’m looking forward to being back on Mockernut Road between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro, NC. I’ll be there for a long weekend, the first in August, to join my friends Doug Dotson and Ronan Peterson for this festive sale in Doug’s Studio.

I shared this studio with Doug in 2001 and 2002 and we took the first steps in figuring out how to fire his newly built soda kiln. It was a great place to work amidst the tall trees and boulders of granite.
