I am thrilled to be the juror for an International Show of Tableware. Ya that means pots not pieces. I actually gag at the reference to pieces versus pots. It sounds so pretentious! A bit like studio versus workshop. In his wisdom Blair Meerfield has opened this show up to an international audience. I sure hope that the wide reach of Facebook shakes the bushes for some of the world's best pot makers to enter. I can't wait to see the pots. Hey Canada- do me proud and send some of your best. Ya got very stiff competition south of the 49th parallel.
