If you appreciate the breezy and comical way the Brits have with what is, after all, their own language (I think we just rent it), you could do worse than click over there on the right on Hannah McAndrew's blog and read her current post. It involves autos and the deceptively lengthy short distances in the UK and train rides and pots and all, but it's fun reading. The photo above is part of the collection of English pots that were recently donated to the Paisley Museum, the reason for Hannah to set off on a bit of a journey. And then to write about it. Take a look.
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.
