Doug Fitch and Hannah McAndrew arrived safely in Boston this afternoon, after a slightly shaky flight from Heathrow in London. I was there with our friend Tammy Race to meet the two potters. We gave them a drive-by tour of Boston as we exited the tunnel and head south, stopped at the Races' for a beer and conversation, then on to Hatchville for a light dinner and off to bed.
Both are slowly getting used to the idea that they're not in the British Isles any longer. At least not for the next few weeks. And it's been an adjustment to be driven on the "wrong side of the road." Or so they say.
More in the days to come. The two will teach a slipware pottery workshop this weekend at Falmouth High School. You can still sign up for the workshop. Just go to capecodpotters.org and follow the workshop links. Or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll lead you through it.
