Kim Harcourt since you are recruiting the women in my life to fire your wood kiln you might as well take another top draft pick. Cathleen Nicholson of Sheridan College faculty has been firing off the Sheridan wood kiln with a new pack of rookies for the past 20 years. She knows that wood kiln like no other person on this planet. She is an amazing stick handler and her clay work is always beautifully considered. Take this little ewer for instance. Two separate enclosed forms cut and put together so that the throwing marks are different on each side. The sweet little spout, the cut bottom, the funnel off to the side, the gnar gnar all put together on this sweet little pot. The time involved to make all these considerations is the same kind of care she takes with a kiln. If you invite her I will drive her. So that means you gotta invite me too. If Jen Drysdale and Cathleen leave me I’m going with them.
