You guessed it! Today I came home from Henniker, NH with my very own potter’s wheel and kiln! I cannot begin to describe my excitement! Ok, so let me tell you how this all went down. As I mentioned on Monday, I started looking for pottery equipment in the hopes of truly getting my own studio going. I looked in the classified section of the newspapers, public post boards, and Craigslist. Craigslist definitely proved to be the best source for what I wanted. I checked out ads for Hew Hampshire and also Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Maine. I found quite a few ads that I inquired about and heard back from this woman who was selling her beautiful kiln and wheel. Over several emails, I decided I really needed to come by and take a serious look at the equipment she had for sale. Andrew made the hour drive with me to look at the wheel and kiln and before I knew it we were driving back home with the wheel, kiln, and a box full of mint condition shelves and shelf posts loaded up in the back of our van. It was such a great offer, I had to jump on the opportunity!
