I built a new kiln, 2.5 times bigger than my previous. It's a hoss, holds about 200 pots and fires like a dream. I fired it 5 times this year.
I built myself a treadle wheel, I've wanted one for years and now I have one, I rule.
I made a lot of pots.
I had a show with some of my favorite potters and sold a boatload of pots(not just mine) to our community. It was a ton of work and I had a 2 month period of burnout afterwards, but it was worth it.
We welcomed 2 new members to our clan and they made themselves right at home.
Here are 3 of my favorite pots from 2009.
