While the national team members were ski-jumping in Vancouver at the Olympics, some pretty damn good jumpers who didn't quite make the teams were flying off the 90-meter hill in Brattleboro, Vermont, this past weekend. Jumpers from across the United States and from Slovenia and Austria competed at Harris Hill, just a few blocks from Brattleboro's lively downtown. We took a weekend away from Cape Cod to see these young folks fly through the air Saturday and Sunday. Pretty cool. Above at top, Nick Fairall of Andover, NH, and below him (but with everyone on the side of the hill looking up at him) Stefan Klade of Austria. Now, back to making pots.
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.
