Ruth and Russel
I had a visit yesterday from two American potters, currently residents of Belgium. Russel Fouts, who brought along one of his beautiful Terra-Sigillata dishes, and Ruth Ballou, who showed me some images of some of her very fine soda and saltglazed pots. Ruth is shortly to return to the States to establish a pottery in South Carolina. It was good to meet them and to share their enthusiasm for ceramics. Russel is moving to a bigger place just to house his ceramics collection, how cool is that?
A busy day ahead of me tomorrow at the Sandford Festival. I'll be exhibiting at a craft fair during the daytime and playing with the Love Daddies in the evening.
Mike Sanderson, kindly sent me a link to some photos of Clay Art on his excellent site, Ceramike
Happy weekend all.
