Perfect timing for Special BreadPot

I have a few BreadPots for the next batch that are just right for inscribing. This week only, customize a BreadPot, regular recipe-in-lid price, in time for spring and summer wedding presents, for example.

Cold house...warm oven

Happy New Year. Cold weather is a good excuse to turn on the oven and bake bread.
Warm house, full belly, full heart. Thank you all.

BreadPots to Skowhegan Bread Fair

Just finished a kiln load of new BreadPots. The colors are sand, brick, and salmon.
Dappled sunlight at the kiln in the woods.
Some of them are thrown by my apprentice, Dave. He is getting really good as I nudge him with  my perfectionism. Next Saturday I will go to the Bread Fair following the Kneading Conference in Skowhegan, Maine. Some of his will be mixed in with mine. I will offer a special price for the plain ones he made, without a recipe under the lid, of $150. If you want one, come to the fair or go to BreadPots.com. I have many with recipes and as always there is Pick of the Kiln with the best features of the lot, signed and stamped.
