I love being in a gallery or museum show so that people can see my pots. But display like that amounts to the theory of claywork and a pot in use in someone's home is its practice. I say this because when we got to the home of our friends Trudi and Brad Hennemuth in Lincolnville, Me., last week, there was one of my simple cylindrical vases in a window, loaded with lovely orange flowers. (Sorry, someone's going to have to tell me what kind they are ... ) I love to see pots being used.

Three pots in October show, one pot in use
I got the good news about a week ago that three of my faceted teabowls were juried into "Concepts In Clay," the October show of the Cape Cod Potters at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis. Potter Ellen Shankin of Floyd, Va., was the juror. I don't know the exact numbers of pots and potters, but the museum's big room will hold the work of more than 30 Cape potters and sculptors. More about the show when it gets a bit closer.
