18th Annual Holiday Studio Open House at the Desert Dragon Pottery

We had our annual open house at the Dragon last weekend, and it did not disappoint!  There was lots of good food and music, and pots all around.

My nephew Dillon practiced a little on the wheel, and my nephew Ross threw for the very first time.  My parents were in town, it was so nice to have them there to participate in the day.  We unloaded the gas kiln, and the pots all turned out gorgeous.  All in all it was a great day!  Here's a few pictures and videos.

My table at the Open House.  I love getting everything I have left at the end of the year, and putting it all together to see.  I kind of get a sense of what's been working (or Not), and may get some new idea's for what I want to work on over the next year.

My Nephews - Dillon practicing, and Ross throwing for the first time.  Dillon has thrown a few pots before at my house, he's a very creative guy!  I love how Ross smiles and plops his hands right down with no fear :)

Here's the pieces I bought from other potters at the open house.  Most years, I come home with a few new things :)
