Lulu Ficther working in her demo booth
Mark Ragonese creating his outdoor sculptures. He is the craftsmen that taught Jeff how to make the stick arbors that he created in front of our gallery and around our tomato plants. Mark spends the week at the fair building sculptures of rocks and sticks, talking about his process with fairgoers as he works.
We ended the week at the fair with the annual NH Potters Guild dinner meeting. This picture was taken by Dick Kaufmann at the site of the guild's community wood kiln in June of 2010. Sitting in the center (holding the cane) is Gerry Williams, long time member and past editor & founder of Studio Potter. It is always fun to get together with the guild and it usually involves great food & wine.
We are almost unpacked from the trip... at least the mountains of laundry are done. I will be happy to be back to making pots this week.
