If you put your ear to the ground the rumble that you are beginning to hear is made by the potter/blogger fellowship as we make our way from near and far to North Carolina and the exhibition organized by Meredith Heywood that opens this weekend. Hollis and Dee visited this morning for breakfast as they wend their way south from Cape Cod. They might get the prize for coming the furthest?!
I won’t be there myself, but it will be a terrific show with the work of 50 potters who also write. Perhaps some are writers who also make pots?
The exhibition is titled: “Clay and Blogs : Telling a Story” and will be held at Campbell House Gallery in Southern Pines, NC for the month of October.
I also spent some time today on a project that I’m now calling the British Invasion (part II). We are bringing Hannah and Doug to the US next spring (!) for a series of workshops and there are lots of bits and pieces that need attending for it to be a success.
I’ve been passing this sign on the way to the studio for a week or two.
A while ago I showed one half of the mural that covers most of my old shop on Hanover Street. Here’s the other half for your viewing pleasure.
