Too Busy to Blog – Teaching and Making Pottery!!!

It has been way too long since I last blogged. Sorry. Here is what I have been up to:

Pincu Pottery is turning One Year Old!

May 1, 2011 - Celebrate with food, drink and a 2nds Sale!!!

May 1, 2011 from noon to 4 PM CELEBRATE PINCU POTTERY’S BIRTHDAY!! Food, drinks, door prizes and the annual 2nds Sale (not-so-perfect pots 25-50% off)

While planning the birthday, I have been helping to plan the annual fund raiser for the Swain County Community Foundation – Derby Fest – which will take place May 7 from 5 PM at Relia’s Garden at the Nantahala Outdoor Center. This will be a really FUN night out – and the money raised goes to local non-profits!  If you are in Bryson City that evening, please come buy a ticket at Pincu Pottery or the Cork & Bean.  Only $25 plus cash bar and silent auction – all to help Swain non-profits!!!

I also had a day to visit with my nephews, Elijah and Jonah, from NYC!  They came to Western North Carolina and played with clay for a few hours.  Boy did we have fun!!!

Elijah also made a sculpture that I hope to fire and finish

Lastly, I now have pottery in Asheville at the New Morning Gallery! This is a really fine, award-winning craft gallery in the Biltmore Village area of Asheville, North Carolina. I have visited this gallery for years and feel honored to have my pottery on display there. If you are in Asheville, please visit the New Morning Gallery and take a look at the fabulous pottery, furniture, jewelry and other crafts! And while you are there, buy a pot or two!!!

So… it has been a pretty busy month and I hope to begin blogging on a weekly basis again soon. I may not be back on track until after Derby Fest on May 7. Until then, if you want me to tackle a certain topic, please leave a comment or email me and I will be sure to try answer you as soon as I can!!!

Thanks for reading!
