Did everyone have a nice holiday today? We started out at Sutton's Drug Store on Franklin St. for breakfast. Sutton's is one of the last remaining soda fountain/drug stores left in NC, built in 1923. Cheap, good food! The atmosphere is Carolina basketball and locals gathering for chats and great food. Then a walk around campus for some sunshine that I have not seen for awhile.
I love the prescription counter and the pharmacist with his pharmacist jacket on. so classic.
The shadow on the building is the bell tower on campus. There used to be a group that gathered there every Saturday at noon before the ball games for a "12 o'clock high". I wonder if they still do that?
There is that famous Carolina blue sky. There is a saying that if God isn't a Tarheel why is the sky Carolina Blue? It sure was today. So nice to be out in the 56 degree temps and beautiful skies. I even got in several Raku firings today. I'll post some more pics tomorrow of the pots all cleaned up
and if firing the kiln wasn't enough we built a fire and tossed on the dead Christmas tree. Do you think I have had enough flames this week? Pit firing, saggar firing, Raku and a bonfire.
Happy days! I have a picture tomorrow for Ron Philbeck too, to show you my "sacred space" pottery wheel.
