OK, first off ... I apologize to Meredith Heywood for simply blanking on her name in the middle of an interview I did yesterday with David Morrison Pike, an American ex-pat who works as a potter in Nara, Japan. I have this brain-cramp thing that happens sometimes and it happened yesterday when Dave and I were talking about pottery blogging. I believe I call her in the podcast "a woman in North Carolina," which is true as far as it goes, but ... I mean ... come on ... I KNOW this woman. And did I think to mention the October show of blogging potters? Nooooooo ... jeez.
So, OK, aside from those two things, this might be an interesting thing to listen to if you're curious about how another potter does his work or prices his work or sells his work or got his influences or the sound of my voice or ... anything else I could say in 40 minutes.
Dave's a good guy and makes good wood-fired pots and certainly is in an interesting place to be a potter. And he likes to talk to other potters and find out what makes them do what they do.
You can find the podcast here ... http://togeii.wordpress.com/2010/07/09/podcast-with-hollis-engley-hatchville-pottery/
And I'll put a couple of Dave's pots up top so you can see a bit of what he does.
And again, sorry, Meredith ...
