Northern Migration

It's been a late spring but I hear the migration of song birds has started. It is rumoured that Dan Finnegan has his van packed and he has flown over to Minnesota for the prestigious St. Croix River Valley Sale before making his trek north for his workshop here at Pinecroft Centre for the Arts. Collectors from all over the country go to that sale which is an invitational show of some of the countries best. Dan is in fine company.
Dan is a damn fine pot maker and his going to the birds is only a part of the picture of this truly Renaissance man. The more I find out about Dan the more I am humbled. He is a dang bee keeper, too!
We have a couple of spots open in his workshop so if you want a lifetimes worth of pot making in one week Dan is your man.  I for one am highly anticipating this workshop.  We're waiting for you Dan. I'm resting up for your arrival. Oh maybe I'm not. We have a group wood firing next week and Dan should arrive for the upload and perhaps a crit of the work and a dinner together with the woodies and the new arrivals.

I realy wish I could attend this workshop, but the tax man took my pin money and then some.
Maybe next year, if the floods don't come again. It's fingernail biting time here in the river valleys of Calgary. Maybe the APA could get you AND Dan to come to Calgary....

You guys are SO lucky to be getting together. The intensity of my jealously cannot be measured.

I am so happy that you all will share Dan's (and your) talents with others...and you'll post the pics here for me and others who can't make it! PS I hate word verification and seldom comment when bloggers require that...though I look at your blog frequently.

What John said.I'm sure you and Dan will hit it off. He's an easy guy to like.
