In my last post I listed a group of potters that are going to be in the show in Rochester I am planning to be part of next October. It is a formidable list of some of the countries best. I should be scared shitless. I got this note from Robin "Grass" Hopper- "Don't worry about the competition, No-one there that you can't easily match on a good day."
The key to what Grass said is " on a good day". I had a bit of a rocky 2014 but the last few months have seen almost exclusively good days. My pots almost always reflect my state of mind. Sometimes happy and animated and sometimes on guard and get too close and I'll open up your lip. My friend and former student Andrew Kellner was here to stay over and he said "You're always reinventing yourself!"
