Peterson says more details will be coming, but you can check out (www.ninetoespottery.blogspot.com) for unfolding details, or check out the Nine Toes Pottery page on Facebook.

Here’s the catch:

The studio is located behind a home on a small private street called “The Glen” off Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. The Glen looks like a driveway and is easy to miss. It is located at the crest of Franklin Street between Glendale Drive and Park Place.

Here’s some directions to help you out and of course there is always Google Maps.

From downtown Chapel Hill: Take Franklin Street East, go past N. Boundary St, get in right lane. Look for a small white sign on the right reading “The Glen”, turn right at sign and go to the bottom of hill. Make the first right into #4 The Glen.

From Durham/Raleigh: Take 15-501 towards Chapel Hill. Take the Franklin Street exit. After Estes intersection, get in left lane. Go past Cafe Driad, when you pass Davie Circle, put left blinker on and start slowing down. At very top of hill turn left at the small black sign reading “The Glen”. Go to the bottom of hill and make the first right into #4 The Glen.

Park out front and walk along the driveway to the back of the house.

You can call 919/225-6160 if you get turned around.

Update on Future Pottery Sales from Potter Ronan Peterson

Monday, September 21st, 2009

I received an update on future pottery sales from Ronan Peterson, a Chapel Hill, NC potter and blogger.

Peterson wrote: “I’m sending out one more quick reminder about the 3 Guys* and Some Pottery Sale this weekend and a short blurb about the Circle of Eight Sale the next weekend. Come out if you can and bring a pottery loving friend or two with you.”

Now Peterson’s blurb needed some cleaning up and a little extra work on my part to make it more informative for you readers, but that’s OK – I’m a seasoned translator and it’s my job.

First off, the * after the 3 Guys* is pretty simple. After doing this sale a number of years with three male potters – this year a female potter has joined the group.

The sale will take place at Doug Dotson Pottery – not near Pittsboro or Chapel Hill, NC – it takes place at 326 Mockernut Road, Pittsboro, NC – to be exact. A Google search of that address gets you a map for directions. The event – the 7th Annual 3 Guys* and Some Pottery Sale begins with a reception on Sept. 25, 2009, from 6-9pm. The sale continues on Sept. 26, 2009, from 10am-4pm and on Sept. 27, 2009, from noon-4pm. For further info or help, you can call 919/542-6439.

Peterson goes on to say, “I will have my highly decorated functional earthenware for sale alongside the earthy and comfortable soda fired stoneware of Doug Dotson and the elegant, yet familiar and colorful porcelain of Kelly O’Briant. We will be joined by Matthew Thomason who will have handmade journals, cards and some paintings on hand. Last year’s sale was great and we are looking forward to another weekend of hanging out, snacking and selling some pots (and prints!). Come on out into the woods and join us, bring your friends and spread the word about this special studio sale.”

The Circle of Eight Sale

Peterson also offers, “The next weekend, Oct. 3, 2009, I will join the Circle of Eight for their Fall Sale as an invited guest artist. The Circle is a group of Charlotte area ceramic artists which include Amy Sanders, Ron Philbeck, Julie Wiggins, Jennifer Mecca, Greg Scott and Adrienne Dellinger.  (Sandy Singletary is also a member of the Circle of Eight, but was not mentioned – perhaps she is not participating in this sale. Also, that adds up to seven potters – so I guess the 8th person represents a guest potters – don’t know.) I’m excited to be part of this sale and I am looking forward to hanging out and selling some pots with these talented potters in the Queen City. The sale will be from 10am-4pm at 1225 Dade Street, Charlotte, NC.”

Again, a Google search will get you a map. You can call 704/650-5662 for more info.
