Glaze Talk at Penland

Headed up to Penland for a 2 1/2 hour glaze talk with Gay Smith and Scott Goldberg's Concentration.

Clay Club was nothing short of spectacular

And by that I mean Josh Copus's Place!  It was just amazing all the work that he and his crew have done.  The 4 monster kilns the amazing shed and the entire feel of the place was just very very impressive. I am not sure that he realizes what a impressive place he has built and is continuing to build!  Fantastic.

It actually reminded me of something you would see in Korea or Japan at some museum in an archeological dig of the emperors palace!!!

In a few years when he gets some classes going The Copious Maximus will rule the world!!!! Watch out Penland and Arrowmont!!!  This guy is the for real!

Remember October Clay Club TONIGHT

Yo Clubbers,

Once again we have planned a Spectacular Clay Club for Wednesday  October 6th, 2010 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

It will be at Josh Copus's Studio in Marshall.  We will check out his kiln and see what is in the works next for the space. He (and Maybe Eric if he is around?)  may also talk a bit about his European Tour ---Wood Conference in Germany and Creabiz Conference in Denmark.

So bring whatever food you want and if you need directions you can Google:

"216 Craine Rd." in Madison County NC

The actual address is 216 Ledford and Craine Rd
Marshall NC 28753

The Phone is 828 242 2368

You can always call me 828-467-5020 and I will counsel you. I don't know if I can help you get there, as I have never been there, but I will try to feel your pain and empathize with you.
