Turning and Burning

Tomorrow is the Turning and Burning Festival at the Hewell Pottery in Gillsville, Georgia. Madam Monk and I haven't missed a one since they started in 1992 or so. Great fun though some would consider it a little "countryfied". We have a lot of folk pottery and several pieces by all the generations of Hewells that are still at the wheel even the little ones just starting. Madam, being the arty one can look at piece of pottery and tell you who the maker was.

The festival gets bigger and bigger every year and is always a fun day. I think we have some friends that have never been going with us as well.

This will be the last "fling" for awhile as I start a new engagement next Monday that will run a couple of months. It is in Peachtree City south of Atlanta but far enough that I will stay down there on Monday thru Wednesday nights to save wear and tear on me and a little petrol as well. Fridays are non on-site days for paperwork and the such so I will be home for the weekends.

Everyone have a great weekend.

The top picture is an example of traditional folk pottery produced at the Hewell Pottery. This one is by Nathaniel Hewell. This particular glaze is known as "tobacco spit"

The bottom picture is from a couple of years ago but shows a traditional wood fired kiln being burned at the Hewell Pottery.
