Clay Club will take place at Robbie Bell's Speckled Dog Pottery next Wednesday, February 11, at 6 pm. Here's what Robbie has planned refreshment-wise (if you know Robbie, you know you won't want to miss this!):
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
Six days before Mardis Gras ... We will have Gumbo and Red Beans (vegan) and Rice. If you're lucky, there will be a King Cake as well and the person who gets the prize has to make the next one.
Folks should bring their guilty pleasure. Eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we may die.
The program will be the Show and Tell we didn't get to do in January.
I've been asked about what to bring for Show and Tell. It is deliberately open-ended: there are no wrong answers. It could be an experiment that succeeded - or one that failed. If your work is too big or fragile, you could bring a photo. The idea is to get to know you and your work and maybe what inspires you so we all get to know each other a little better. (Have you read the Clay Club motto lately? It's at the top of the blog.) Whether you're a full-time professional potter or a beginning hobbyist or anywhere in between, bring something(s) to share - or rather, to show and tell.
Robbie says DON'T USE GPS - follow these directions instead:
How to find the Speckled Dog (Google it... or...) ..... From the red light in Bakersville, head east on Mitchell Ave/Cane Creek Road for 3.2 miles. Pass the first entrance to Sandy Branch (Church on corner) and head to the second entrance of Sandy Branch. Turn left onto Sandy Branch and the left again at the first paved driveway. Go to the top of the hill. You will see Speckled Dog Pottery signs at Sandy Branch.
Parking .... There is limited parking at the top of the hill. You may park along Sandy Branch and walk up the gentle sloping drive.
