AVPG Meeting @ Josh Simpson’s

Had a great AVPG meeting at Josh Simpson’s  this month. He thanked us all for coming up to his house – he doesn’t get out much – and we were grateful for his hosting. We got  the tour,  saw his two sons, and  enjoyed, of course,

plates and platter of AVPG members with food

More food!  As Mike said, the light was just right.

It was one big love fest. Here are some photos , courtesy of  Michael Cohen .  The gardens are plentiful and we love to use our pots to serve.

Went to Greenfield for the 2nd’s sale, where many local potters unload imperfect work this time of year. Arranged to meet Jeanne Douillard in the parking lot, where I obtained bone ash, kaolin, Superpax, plaster, and cones for a song. Jane Foster brought me a Danish and Megan Hart a latte so I was all set! Tom White gave me some pots for Anglea Fina, so I called her and stopped by on the way back to my studio to drop them off. Beautiful results from Tom’s new kiln.

Here’s a photo I just received this morning from a wonderful collector. It was titled “Favorite Dishes.”
