I am in the studio working on orders and trying to get the greenware to dry evenly. This time of the year is especially trying as our weather is so unpredictable.
If the ware dries too quickly (low humidity) it is likely to crack so I try to keep things covered with light plastic. Occasionally the tops dry and the base is still moldable wet and that is a sure recipe for disaster!


We are saying a fond farwell to many of our Snowbirds this week as they are going home soon. Hope you have safe travels and we look forward to seeing you next year!

It is delightful to see old friends who have been coming out to Clay City for 20-25 years! Fun to catch up on their goings on. It's especially nice to see friends who thought they would not be able to make it back to South Alabama and then they walk through out front door. I must admit our snowbirds are either getting younger or maybe it is that I am just getting older...surprise

While touring around Fairhope stop in at the Fairhope Information Center & pick up some brochures of fun and interesting things to do while in our area. Then travel next door to the Fairhope Museum on Section Street. Donnie and his staff are always available to answer your questions and have ever changing displays. A great & enjoyable place to visit during those beautiful cool Winter walk abouts thru Fairhope.

Visiting our area for a few days? May I suggest "Bay Breeze"Bed and Breakfast on Mobile Bay What  a lovely setting and really gracious hosts. To contact them call (866) 928-8976.

If you are looking for that traditional barber shop I suggest "Dallas Jones Barber Shop" on Section Street in Fairhope. Tell Dallas or Josh that Dallas'  Dad sent you in.
