A heavy heart

This past weekends wood firing dealt me a blow right from the get go. As most wood firers these days we are in constant contact with our I-phones. I opened Instagram to see this wonderful picture of Cary Hulin and his life long partner Elaine sitting in the beautiful anagama they had built and just fired off for the Thanksgiving weekend. Then I read that Elaine had passed unexpectedly at the end of their sale and time with family.
I can't find the words to express my sorrow. I never have been able. I'll just wear it on my heart.
Having a  coffee this morning in a Hulin wood fired cup decorated by Elaine. It's a great cup of coffee and I sense the love this morning.
I  met Cary some 30 years ago when he was apprenticing with Todd Piker. Thankfully the internet has maintained our friendship and connection to one another. I'll see ya in April, Cary.
I know the Amish community that you live in will prop you up as best they can. Be of good courage, my friend. Love, Tony

A sad passing, but happy they had a firing, a sale and family time first
