Karen and I just had a wonderful weekend in Charlotte. Many friends were there. My booth was between Cynthia Bringle’s and Akira Satake’s. I felt honored! So many talented clay artists were there. I really appreciate the reception my work received from patrons in Charlotte. Way beyond my hopes! Karen and I will be traveling for several weeks in the Southwest, visiting friends, touring Anasazi sites in New Mexico, and re-visiting the Grand Canyon and then Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. Then it’s back to work! The Beaverdam Studio Tour is coming up at the end of October here in Asheville.
