Long time coming...2013 Holiday/Open Studio Sale


After a long wait, months of shows, workshops, and mishaps, the much anticipated Nine Toes Pottery blog post is here!

So, since the summer, I was in Houston for a great workshop and solo show with 18 Hands Gallery, a sale with my friend Doug Dotson and invited artists,  deemed the new and improved Mockernut Sale,  some holidays, some other shows, and an article about NTP in American Craft magazine...all in all some busyness and flurry, which brings us up to now...pretty much.

So, my friend and great potter, recently located in Penland, NC, Teresa Pietsch, will be joining me for my annual Holiday/Open Studio sale on December 14 and December 15, 10 am - 4 pm.  The sale is located at my studio, with a studio address of #4 The Glen, Chapel Hill, NC  27514.  I do not have directions up on this site anymore, but any reputable GPS/map device can get you there.  If you get turned around or need some verbal help, you can call my cell at (919) 225-6160.   We are planning on having a lot of pots, some snacks, and a smidgin of holiday cheer for those of you that can make it.

Teresa is exhibiting at the Carolina Designer Craftsmen Guild show in Raleigh, NC this weekend, for any of you Triangulites, and here is a link to her website for some images of her arboreal inspired potteries:  teresapietsch.com.  She also will be open for the Toe River Arts Council Studio Tour next weekend.

Now, more about me, I have some work at FRANK Gallery in Chapel Hill for the Holiday show sale, just sent some work to Taupe Gallery in North Wilkesboro, NC, dropping off pots at Heartwood Gallery in Saluda, NC...more online work at 18 Hands Gallery, Charlie Cummings Gallery, and Mudfire Gallery.  Some cup shows at these galleries:  Crimson Laurel Gallery, Society for Contemporary Craft Shop in Pittsburgh, PA, and the Cup Invitational at Worcester Center for Crafts up in MA.  I probably missed something, and sorry for that, but gotta get going!

Hope y'all can make it to my holiday sale.   Bring a friend, bring a family member, pick up some hitchhikers and come on over!   Happy Holidays to everyone and a wonderful 2014 on the way!
