A BIG Thank You to everyone who supported us during this raffle! Friday at 1:00 we had raised a total of $740.00. Ethel Hamlin, who works for Arrowmont and won the Shawn O'Connor teapot went above and beyond, when she gifted the teapot back to the auction and allowed for it to be sold. Adding an additional $100.00 to our total. We can not begin to tell everyone how excited we are about the final outcome and we want to thank you all very much for helping us along our way. Now the hard work of designing and putting together a catalog with four crazy artists will begin!!!

Hello Everyone! This week we are fundraising! Each of us made a lovely piece which will be raffled off this friday the 6th at 1:00p.m. Our goal is to raise enough money to fund an end of the year exhibition catalog. Below are the pieces that are to be raffled off, if anyone wants a ticket you better get them while they're still hot and fresh! Just because the heat index is up, doesn't mean our fundraising thermometer is rising, so, BUY BUY BUY!!
We will also gladly accept donations throughout the year to help with this project.
Andrea Moon - " You are here" : Stoneware, slip, glaze, fabric 2010.
Shawn O'Connor - "Teapot": Wood fired stone ware, 2010.

Shawn, Jennifer, and Andy - we made it alive to the chimney tops!
We hiked all the way up! Chimney Tops! It was steep going, but the view at the top is amazing! You get to climb on a tricky rock face at the very top, but as long as you use the ladder or billy goat approach, you should be fine.
