Wishing you a day of great food (served on great pots, of course) and great friends and family!

Here in the U.S., we celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday. Like many holidays, Thanksgiving celebrations typically involve lots of food, and family and friends coming together to reflect on what they are thankful for. So today, I thought I would say thank you to all of you all over the world for your continued support and enthusiasm for Ceramic Arts Daily.

 

Another American tradition is Black Friday – the day after Thanksgiving, when crowds head out in throngs to try to find great deals at the stores. As a sign of our appreciation of your support, we’re having a Black Friday sale this whole weekend! Today through Monday, November 26, 2012. take 10% off any purchase from the Ceramic Arts Daily Bookstore (plus get free shipping when you order online!)
 
Finally, for some Thanksgiving fun, I thought I would post a recipe that’s a little different than our usual recipes. I am also including a bonus video for making a vessel to go with it. Have a great day! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
