Parents of our art students,
It is the Gallery policy to follow Marshall schools when it comes to closing for bad weather. So when they are closed, class is cancelled. Check your news sources for school closings.
Gull Lake Partnership, this applies to you too, but also check if Gull Lake is closed. If they are closed, we have to cancel too, even if we have no snow here. So be sure to check.
You can call the Gallery after 10AM if you have any doubt.
This does not apply to adult classes. We will attempt to contact you, but if there is any doubt, please call. ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

So... I haven't posted in forever because a lot has been going on. I've been to two weddings (thank you Shawn, Bradley, Henry, and Virginia) and two firings. So, a story. Sometime in May I fired my catenary. The firing kind of bothered me because we burned 8 face cords of wood and i couldn't get the kiln past cone 8. Very shortly thereafter I went north to fire Jeff Cline's kiln which was a rather magical experience. An awesome crew and as far as I could tell a very well executed firing, food included. ( Let's disregard for a moment Jeff's report that he was not that happy with the results. "sucks" for him means something shy of perfect.)
So during the course of that whole bit I realized that we had burned something like 12 face cords of wood to fire Jeff's , what?, 250 cubic foot kiln? So I drove back south and promptly destroyed my nobo. And now I'm building a new kiln. I have spent much of the last week pouring foundations for it and tonight I began laying brick. Quite a joy to be doing this again after a decade. This new kiln will be a little thumper of an anagama, 11 feet long but 9 feet wide. Shaped like a turnip or the legendary Manglewurzle. I will post pictures as construction gets going. Anyone who wants to come play should do so soon. It has begun...

ANNE'S LAST POTTERY SALE:

Saturday, August 6th: 9:00am - 6:00pm
Sunday, August 7th: 9:00am - 6:00pm

Hi Everyone,

I am in the process of moving to Bloomington because I am starting my MFA program in the Fall at Indiana University. This weekend will be my final sale at Albion Anagama. I am hoping to sell as much as I can to cut down on how much inventory I have to move and to make a little cash to help with the moving costs.

Hope to see you at the shop,
Anne
