Mr Cardew, my great hero

Here's a clip of Michael Cardew, my great hero. What an amazing potter he was.

The clip is great. And your photos look so much clearer and brighter. And now I can be in touch with you--for some reason (unknown) I had trouble getting through the email maze.

Glad you are over the 'man flu'--a phrase I am not familiar with.

Don't know how I will keep up with 2 blogs--but I'll figure it out! Gay

I wasn't familiar with the 'man flu' either so I looked it up. Here's one definition:
man flu n. A severe cold, mistakenly self-diagnosed as the flu, particularly by a man.

I also so something that claimed that men suffer harsher symptoms of the flu than women. Hence, the distinction.

I'm thinking I can some how use this to my advantage at some point.

Lovely film Doug, it just caused me top burn my crumpets as I forgot all about them under the grill.

I can't help but hear your Sid Tustin impression, " Michael Cardew was a very clever man " in my head, and it's very true! I wish there was many more Cardew clips to look at.

Hi Gay
Yes, I mailed you a couple of times to thank you for that amazing little book. I read it cover to cover and I love it. It was very special getting it through the post, it makes all this virtual stuff real when you get an ebnvelope with real writing on it. I was really touched that you should think to send it to me and I'll treasure it.
