on the road again...

Kevin, Hannah and Doug some serious kiln talk
Monday found us on the road again from Fredericksburg to Charlottesville with Dan, stopping in for lunch at  Kevin Crowes pottery and met up with our man Ron Philbeck....
Kevin's crew was prepping for the next firing wadding pots and broke for lunch with us.. what a treat the table was all layed out with a huge range of woodfired teabowls and plates....yummy chowder prepared by Kevins wife and tea from the biggest teapot I have ever seen!!

Kevin's kiln is a 3 chamber combination anagama and noborigama totally huge and check out the wood stacks.... it was a stunning day outside the first time I'd felt warm in days mmmmm sunshine and heat..after a lil swapping around of pots and a great chat we hitt the road again with Ron heading towards Seagrove and Meredith and Marks Pottery we arrived to a house full of potters and potluck dinner mmmmm curry and heaps of salad woohoo....... tues in Seagrove contd. next...


Kevin, his apprentices and Dan

  1. HI Ang- I hope you had plenty of tea and rest at Ron's house.
    It really has been quite the adventure for you.
    Those are some rocking pots there.
    What a lot you have seen on your tour here in the states.
    Best- M
