we arrived home last night from a very exciting trip to the Tampa, FL, NCECA. we drove to Florida and the first night we stayed with Linda & Gary Starr at their home in Lecanto, FL.
Linda is also a ceramic artist and we met via blogging. she gave us the idea and lots of advice about purchasing a retired school bus to move the long distance from NH to NC. this picture is Linda and Gary with their "treasure bus" in the background.
the next morning we drove straight to St. Petersburg for a kiln opening at St. Petersburg Clay Company.
Chris Gustin is being served appetizers from his seat.
Don Reitz (right) pots, fresh from the anagama... so exciting to see!!!!
that's all for today, i will post more NCECA pics tomorrow... i need to get into the studio. i am super-charged to get back to work... and some cool new tools came home with us and i have to try them out.
