We've just returned from our second weekend in Vermont, this time up north in the little town of Underhill, where we stayed with friends Peter and Cindy. It appears that there's a state law that requires snowfall north of Montpelier, so we were in snow of one kind or another most of two days. We skied at the Smuggler's Notch Nordic Center for three hours of up hill and down Sunday morning. In a lovely little snowstorm, among trees already well-coated in snow. I came away thinking I ought to be able to come up with Shino glazes that carbon-trapped in images vaguely reminiscent of a snow-filled winter forest. Wonder how that would work? Back to glazing ...
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.
