I've just added this site to my list there on the right. It's totally charming and apparently all about Brittany, though I say that only on the strength of two years of college French in the late '60s. But I think it's a fun site, and it has the added advantage of getting my own mug off the top of the blog. Take a look at it. Those of you who can hop a train to France might have some fun over there. The map is from the site, highlighting the area around St. Malo and also around Cancale, a charming little oyster-farming town with great quayside restaurants and stunning soupe de poisson.
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.
