This past weekend, Andrew and I drove up the seacoast to admire our beautiful scenery. The beaches here are much different from what I have been used to seeing back in Maryland. I love the big rocks that line the coast and watching the waves break and splash over the rocks. Plus, the homes on the coast are fantastic! Every other house I kept announcing to Andrew, “I found my dream house”!
In the past week or so, I have also discovered a new potter, Kit Cornell, who has a studio right here in town! I haven’t gone to visit her studio yet, but I did check her website out and it is pretty neat! She has a whole article about local clay that can be found here in Exeter! If you dig a little near the banks of the Exeter river, you will find the clay. It is pretty refined clay, too! I should try to make some tiles out of the clay and see how it handles in the kiln. I did not actually find any clay on our little excursion up the coast, but did find beautiful and fascinating rock formations all over the place. I was probably the brightest thing along the coast, but because of the rain that day, there were definitely some nice saturated colors to be found! We found this neat tide pool with vibrant green seaweed and a few rocks here and there that were a beautiful golden orange. Seeing these sights is such a great reminder that we serve a Mighty Creator and that God is the Author of all life!
