The cup show is up at the Barrett Clay Works. To see all the great entries check HERE.
Apparently one of my cups got an Honorable Mention award:) I'm pretty happy about that. Well, I was pretty happy to participate in the show:)
Other than that - haven't gotten into studio/garage much lately :( At STARworks we're getting geared up to have another Annual Gathering in October, so there is plenty to do on many levels. There are also more meetings... BTW, if you would like to come to the Annual Gathering this year - let me know and we'll send you an invitation!

Open house at STARworks Ceramics TONIGHT at 5pm. Don't miss it! Samples of local clay blends, refreshments and good company guaranteed!

So. Maybe I'm impatient... but in trying to set up our business in NC I seem to be running into snags that are caused by insufficient information. (MAYBE it's just that I think simple things into complicated things... as a matter of fact - I'm sure of it. Have noticed tendencies of that before!)
So I thought to record the steps taken, in case it may be helpful to someone in the future. AND to record for our own reference. It's all too easy to forget, as soon as something is resolved.
So, the question of registering a business has been the #1 issue so far. I read from NC Department of Commerce website that:
