Some photos from the 1st Annual Middleboro MA Herring Run Festival 2014  April 2014
Had nice weather but for a few small showers. Lots of people and a ton of vendors.
Set up and take down for 2 days was a pain and almost not worth the trip and expense. Had to truck all the equipment over 100 yards over rough ground. Sold a few pots though. We might do it again next year if asked. Hopefully they will have some overnight security to prevent all the additional labor of 2 set ups..

Did my annual or bi-annual pit/brush fire yesterday. A cool day. I had a nice North east wind that kept the fire going and  me warm at the other end. Burned most of the brush Lu and I cut last week from winter damage and 4 burnished stoneware pots. Not a very large fire but it's still hot. Pots were crusted with ash salt and metals from the firing. Careful scraping, cleaning and a final wax shows more subtle, earthy pots this year. Have a great day!
