The Cahoon Museum, a small but lively organization in the Barnstable village of Cotuit, will show "Come Eat at Our Table: Items for the Meal" from July 24 to September 16. The show will include work by a number of Cape Cod potters, as well as other Cape craftspeople.
Museum director Richard Waterhouse looked at several of my pots yesterday and selected six for the show, most of them plates or serving bowls (including the one shown here) and platters. The museum is in a two-story building, a former tavern, dating to the late 1700s. Lovely old rooms and narrow stairs. Very Cape Cod.
It should be a fun show.
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.
