Kissed By The Flame

Some pots are quiet, they don’t speak of carving or imagery. This one didn’t even speak of glaze colors or designs. Sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the quiet. That would probably have been a better name for this post, maybe it’s the name of the vase. With nothing but a spearmint liner glaze, this piece was placed in the soda kiln. It’s about 11 inches tall so it was put in the top with a sculpture and a few other tall pieces. The soda and the flame did the decoration.

The vase is still very quiet but I think it came out well. I’m pleased with the painting the soda and flame did.

Penland Auction Needs Volunteers

You may have heard that benefit auction patron numbers are up. Unfortunately our volunteer numbers are slightly down and we really need more volunteers in order to pull this thing off in the way everyone is accustomed to. I know staff is already doing a lot to support the auction, so we hoped you might just be able to pass along our need for volunteers to your friends and neighbors.

Jobs available are on the form.
We request that volunteers commit at least 2.5 days of work in order to qualify for housing. Otherwise we run out of housing!
All volunteers get a t-shirt, all meals while working, a big-ole thank you, and the satisfaction of a job well done for a really great cause. 

The auction is Aug 12 and 13th and volunteers are needed a few days in advance too.
