I am not exactly sure how this happened – either poor planning or overproduction – whatever the cause , we are LOW on clay.  We have less than 100 lbs.  Fortunately, we have had a lot of pots to glaze so we scaled back on production.  And, Julie recycled several bins of clay to help us through this tight time.

How do we get clay?  Usually we bum transport from anyone going to Asheville or Charlotte where we purchase clay from Highwater or Carolina Clay.  Our favorite clay bodies are Highwater’s Little Loafers and Laguna’s B-Mix. 

Fortunately for us, Sous-Potter Artie is headed west and will return with 500 lbs. of Little Loafers.  That should get us through the holidays.
