Potential pottery co-op space: Warehouse for rent in rural Weaverville, 25 minutes north of Asheville


From Hart and Mary Morgaine Squire:

Seeking tenant (s) for a large, rural warehouse located at the end of Reems Creek Road on Maney Branch.

The earth-brimmed, green-design warehouse is over 6,000 square feet, not including the large dock area. About 1,000 square feet of that is a walk-in cooler (which can be used as a room if not needed as a cooler). There is access to single phase, 3-phase, 220 and a converter for electricity.  The warehouse has domed skylights that provide plenty of light without ever having to turn on the lights. There is a garage door, kitchen and one bathroom. The warehouse is surrounded by an active organic farm/gardens, nature trail and residential community. It has an access for trucks, though we'd like to curtail most semi-traffic. $3,000 a month in rent, plus $3000 deposit. We provide water, sewer and garbage. Tenants would be responsible for electric, recycling, refrigeration and propane. Ideally the tenants would have low to no semi-traffic as well as moderate septic needs.

Additional photos available on request.

We look forward to hearing from you if this is up your alley

Thank you and,
Green Blessings,
Hart and Mary Morgaine Squire

Help the Barnes' Recover after Studio + Kiln Barn Burned Down



Help The Barnes' After Devastating Fire!




CHECK OUT GOFUNDME PAGE AND DONATE: 


From Brant & Karen Barnes:

'Riverwood Pottery (located in Dillsboro, NC) is the face of our family's clay business, but our barn was the heart of it.  It was where the alchemy happened, where we built our kilns and glazed & fired our ware.  It's where we started out in 1984 and where we were planning to retire.  Watching it burn was beyond heartbreaking.

We had been firing our wood kiln since 5:00 am, something we love and have done so many times over the years.  After we reached temperature and finished salting, we went through our shutdown routine and headed to the house for showers and dinner around 6:00 pm.

At 8:30 we heard an explosion and looked out to see the whole barn in flames.  It was already obvious that it was beyond saving, but the fire department was able to keep it from spreading to our 330-gallon propane tank (!) and our truck (the taillights were melted, but can be replaced). They got it put out around 11:00pm. 

The destruction was complete--but our house and the neighbors were OK, so we're hugely grateful for that.  The wood kiln we think we can repair--it was at the edge of the fire--but our glaze kiln was in the middle of it and we'll need to rebuild it, along with our studio.

There are a lot of things we can't replace:  our glaze & firing notebooks, our favorite tools and our pottery collection are gone.  But we can build new kilns and a nice little studio to come home to--it's all we need, so that's what we plan to do."

Kiln (Skutt) Master Controller for Sale

SOLD!
This lightly used controller comes with an older Gare electric kiln (7 cu ft). The Gare kiln was originally a manual controlled kiln, retrofitted with the Skutt Kiln Master Controller for more convenient, automatic firing capabilities.
The Master Controller was purchased new in 2013 and fired approximately 10 times (to bisque temperature). The Gare kiln is well worn, but fired fine to bisque temperatures until 2017 when its was put in storage. It may have the ability to fire higher, we just never have. At last firing in 2017, all electrical components functioned fine. Pick up only in Canton, NC 28716.
$400 firm.
