I spent Tuesday entertaining (I hope) the students at the University of Mary Washington here in Fredericksburg. Jon McMillan (with the mug raised) took over the Ceramics department last semester and he has hit the ground running. We quickly made a connection and he is already doing great things for his students and the school. Like bringing me in to expose his students to the world of a working potter.
It was a good, fun day with an excellent lunch at Miso restaurant, my new favorite!
We will also open the first exhibition of work by the University’s art students at LibertyTown this Friday, so it’s been a great week for tearing down the town/gown walls!
