Off to Seattle and NCECA




We're hoping we'll find Seattle in the grip of spring when we get there late Thursday. Doubt it, though. It's been in the 70s here on Cape Cod the past couple of days, but Seattle hangs in with 40s and cold. We'll survive.
Visiting our son Marcus and his wife Anastasia there in that great city on the coast. And I'll head to NCECA for three days of looking at and talking about clay. Looking forward to it.
Any bloggers or blog-readers who are going to be there, look me up.
Meantime, Alex will be equipping her dragon with its last two feet and then hoping it will dry slowly and evenly over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks, guys. Michael, it was great being with you two at the workshop, and getting to know you both a bit. Keep an eye on the mails; you should be getting a CD of many photos from the workshop. I sent it out yesterday.
Yes, Tracey, the dragon is a piece of work. Two legs to go. I'm hoping it navigates the drying and firing process in one piece. And yes, it will be great to see the boy.

I've got dibs on the hottub...and the cats!

Hollis Engley said...

there's room enough for you and Meredith in the tub, Dan. And Mark, too, for that matter, but probably not the cats.
