Over at the Whynot Pottery blog, Meredith and Mark have lost leave of their senses and have written a very flattering description of their visit to Fredericksburg last week. They have obviously ‘drunk the kool-aid‘ and fallen under my spell! Thanks so much for the visit and the too kind words. More reasons to love this blogging world.
Last year at this time I was making my way to the studio to make a point that I was a potter, no longer a patient. A year later I am as strong and healthy as ever and looking forward to another busy year with the arrival of a new apprentice later this week and the arrival of Doug and Hannah for a workshop tour in April and a visit to New York City for my birthday later this month.
I hope that you also have big plans for a great year!
I thought I’d show some off some earlier work from time to time.

Sorry about the copper red, Hollis, I didn’t know better back then!

Fun to see the old work Dan!
you make some mighty fine kool-aid and we are happy to take partake!
Fun to see those pots- is that some segar blue as well?
We all start somewhere and it looks as if you have gone down the right path.
You know- I forgot you had been sick as well- you have done well.
Enjoy you trip to NY!
Happy days! Enjoy the trip to NY, say hi to Paul’s sister if you bump into her it being such a small place.
Looking forward to visiting you in the not too distant future.
Very exciting about the apprentice too.
CHEERS to you and all that is GOOD!
Save me a cup of kool aide in case I make it out your way this year.
Don’t forget about your favorite brother and his family coming for a visit, too!
That copper red stuff is pretty scary. I’d never touch it.
