This will be brief. We returned on a redeye flight this morning to Boston from Seattle after nine days away. Visited our son Marcus, daughter-in-law Anastasia and their little family of two birds and the new and adorable puppy Hopi. Saturday, we snowshoed at over 5,000 feet at Chinook Pass on Mt. Rainier, while the younger athletes and their friends skied up and down a bit of the mountain. Still lots of mushy snow left on Rainier, and a good deal of fog. Lovely up there. More tomorrow, including some beautiful wood-fired pots at Bainbridge Island.
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.
