I’ve been thinking back to some of the first Open Houses. I remember the kiln openings (ooooh, aaaah!). People scooping up pots that were actually still warm!

The memorable and sometimes elaborate hors d’oeuvres. The time I was in charge of the food signs and announced that we had a Toco Bar. One year, I convinced my mom that fried pickles were called Fickles and she told everyone!

There were the the many, many, many guests artists: other potters, jewelers, wood workers, goats, painters, metalworkers, glass artists, photographers, soaps, and so much more.

The Open House the day after we had the fire in 2004, and put stickers on all the pots that said, “I survived the fire!” Ian still drinks out of a mug from that infamous kiln batch.

My favorite part of the Open Houses is visiting with the family and friends who would come and help out all weekend. It has been pure joy pouring mimosas in the back room, sitting at the tables and catching up, and at the end of the day hanging out long after the crowds left and sharing all our stories of the day. You made it all so special.

When we say that you’re part of the Coyote Family we mean it from the bottoms of our hearts and pots. There is no way we would be where we are today without you.

Thank you isn’t adequate, but it will have to do until this weekend when we can tell you in person and give you a hug.
