Morning Sky Pottery

A favorite place to shop for pottery in Black Mountain, NC. On Cherry Street, next to the stairs that go up to a nice pizza place and other shops, this is the one above the fish pond that's mainly a patio outdoors. So it is open odd hours depending upon the weather. But oh, wait till you see the pots! It's worth trying again if you chance to hit a rainy day on your first try.

Not only a great view of the pottery, but a great place to watch a parade down Cherry Street, or look at the mountains in the distance.
The annual Halloween Pets and Costumes Parade (and lots of people watching the little ones)  Unfortunately cars were still parked along the street,
Since the entire patio shop of Morning Sky Pottery is fenced in, I'm sending this as a submission to "Friday Fences" meme on another blog HERE...come on over to see what other fences get posted!

  3. Black Mt. has certainly changed in the 70 years since I first sent to Camp Montreat. Your pictures are wonderful, and the pottery gorgeous. I really enjoyed the series.

  9. An artisan town just naturally brings joy to ones heart -- there where the free spirit flows. Would love to visit this place but my hopes are getting slim since I moved to Washington state. But I do get to enjoy your posts of the town and folks that live there -- wonderful header. --- barbara
