I'm still sorting through pots today, finishing up the entry forms for the spring Cape Cod Potters show at the Cape Museum of Arts in Dennis, picking tomatoes from the garden before the rabbits get at them. I know I ran a tomato photo a few days ago, but what the hell, it's that time of year. So many smallish tomatoes that Dee and I can't eat them all out of a bowl, so I put a couple of cookie sheets of tomatoes in the oven to roast - 350 F for about an hour, a sprinkle of sugar and olive oil. That's the recipe of the day from Hatchville Pottery. These are the before and after photos of today's roasted tomatoes.
I make and sell functional pottery at Hatchville Pottery in Hatchville, a neighborhood of the town of Falmouth, at the west end of Cape Cod in Massachusetts. I'm a former journalist - 20 years as a photographer, writer and editor - who began to make pottery about 20 years ago in Alexandria, VA. My training is in pots for eating, drinking and displaying flowers, often with an Asian or late British influence. Hamada Shoji, Phil Rogers, Dan Finnegan, Nakazato Takashi, Kanzaki Shiho are all influences.
Married 40 years to Dee, a massage therapist in Falmouth, with one child, Marcus.
