Pottery Open, sort of.

Pincu Pottery is almost open!  Come check it out any time next week Tuesday – Saturday from 10-4!

80 Highway 28 South, Bryson City, North Carolina.

Pretty much just off 19/74 – you can see King’s Grocer (formerly Texaco) from my shop.

Class schedules to come – tools are comin’ in!

Pincu Pottery

New sign - ready for business!

In case you didn’t get the phone number, it’s 488-0480.  No need to call if you come during open hours!

Pincu Pottery carries Bamboo Tools which are not available locally.  Pretty soon, come check out the selection of tools from Chinese Clay Art, and DooWoo tools!  Hopefully Dolan tools are just around the corner, too.  If you have any ideas for tools, just ask!

I want to offer tools without the shipping/handling fees for all those in the boonies.  Come, fondle the tools, choose and walk away with a new tool.  Better than shopping online!

New Kiln and Studio

JoeFrank McKee and his students have worked diligently during Tuesday and Thursday night class to build the kiln.  So far, so good.  We have an arch.  Thursday the back is bricked in and we start the climb upwards for the flu/chimney.

If all goes right, we should be firing in a few weeks!  Yippers!

Thanks, JoLynn, for bringing a truckload of wood!

My next post will be about my new studio.  An update on how its coming along.

New Studio/Gallery in the works

Pincu Pottery is moving from a basement to a stand-alone building.  Coming soon to Bryson City, NC – Pincu Pottery studio and gallery including classes in clay and one-on-one instruction! I also hope to carry a small line of pottery tools for the last-minute needs of local potheads!  (that’s pottery ‘pot’ heads).

There is much to be done …. paint paint paint, furnish, etc.  Need new business cards, rack cards with class info, etc.  Anyone have a favorite tool they can recommend I carry?
