I need to answer a bunch of questions then pass it on to other bloggers.This is going to involve a lot of back and forth or clip and paste so I'm just going to tell you a bunch of personal info and it may not all be warranted to be true.Then I'll show a few new pots.
I was born in 1950. That makes me 35 years old, 6ft 6in tall and 175 lbs.
I have been married to my wife Tina for 37 years.
I have a full head of hair and an IQ of 182.
We have 2 kids. Our son Ben is in NYC where he runs a Global Brand Strategy company.The kid's a branding guru and old Dad is just stumbling through trying to peddle his pots.Our daughter Kate teaches art in Charlotte and makes jewelry. She has been awarded a paid semester at the McColl Center for the Arts to pursue her own work. And she is featured in a show opening there this weekend.
I am a retired teacher of multi handicapped children. I worked with older teens and young adults and taught a lot of daily living and transition to work skills. I was also dept. chair at a large high school.
I don't know what you all are complaining about, I sell out at every show I do.
Most of the potters that I try to emulate (see I did go to college) have been influenced by English country pottery.
When I read Ceramics Monthly I feel like I'm the only one who knows the emperor has no clothes.
Politically I am to John Boehner's left and Nancy Pelosi's right but try to get along with everyone.
One of my favorite workshops was the Carolina Clay Matters winter workshop with Mark Hewitt a few years ago and if Judy will comment with this years offering, I may come down again.
Most of the music I like was written before 1940 and played by string bands, fiddlers, and banjo pickers in the mountains of Appalachia.
I think that is 11 facts. I will pass this on to other deserving bloggers soon. Here are some pots including Mitt Romney's piggy bank.
