Herding cats









I know you all want to see more pictures of the pots and here is what I am going to do.
I need to go back to the gallery when there are no distractions.
No potters-
No wine.......
and no spinach dip!
Then I can take my time to take pictures of all the work.
I had the best time taking Linda, Gary, Hollis and Dee out to visit with Seagrove potters, view work talk and see many kilns.
Fortunately there were several potters who were firing.
It was great to stop in and see many wood kilns being feed.
Of course my favorite was watching Mr. Ken feeding the kiln.

Hey, I like that middle pic, we all look so purdy! Hitomi and Takuro have the cutest kids I have ever seen!!!

Linda Starr said...

ah, (couldn't resist).

what a sweet photo of little ken at the kiln.

what a blast we had, thanks for the tours and everything, remember you and Mark have got to come to Florida for a visit when things calm down, rest in the sun by the pool, have some wine and spinach dip too. Ha I missed that dip at the show.

Thank you for the picture! I really like it. Thank you for your hard work for the show and it was really successful.

You and Mark were perfect hosts, Meredith. Great show, great reception, great tour, great food, great bed ... We got home to a broken internet router (or whatever you call it), so I'm late getting online. Drove 12 hours from your place to Stroudsburg PA Sunday, then the rest of the way Monday. Got home about 5. I'll be posting stuff over the next day or so, but lots of people have got things online before me, so everyone knows how great the show looks. And you'll be happy to know we found liver pudding at the Lowe's in ... Greensboro, was it? Yummmm ....
More later.

Hey- Jim we do need a pictures with names and that would be TRACEY BROOME with the bunny ears- not Mark.

cookingwithgas said...

Hey Hollis- glad to read you are home safe- we so enjoyed meeting you and Dee in person- feels like more family to me!
Tell me how you like the liver pudding- not for everyone.

Hollis Engley said...

Same here, Meredith. You guys are expected here on the Cape at some point.
