I am starting to change my mental gears as I prepare for my 30th(!) visit to Great Britain this summer. I have an exciting trip planned...I will fly into Edinburgh, Scotland and spend a couple of days there before touring in the countryside before visiting old friends. Then it's on to new friends...Hannah and Paul will be putting up with me for a few days. I will do my best to entertain some of the members of the Scottish Potters Association and, in a twist that I find delicious, I will teach the Brits to make teapots!? I think that there might be a space or two remaining if you happen to find yourself in the west of Scotland.From Hannah's I will drive south to the Cotswolds, my home away from home since 1978 when I first visited. Toff and Georgie Milway are incredibly kind to maintain my little Cotswold cottage for me when I'm here in the U.S. (lol) and I'm anxious to see all my friends there. I'm still figuring out my trip to Devon and Mr. Fitch (if you're reading this, Doug, I'll phone you this week), but I do plan to get there at some point. I'm sure that he owes me a beer!
The good news keeps on rolling...check out the listing below for next years adventure!
Kevin and I led a kiln building workshop at Penland 10 years ago and they have asked us back to do the same trick again. Check out the other lads that will be joining me! Hot stuff!
And, in case you remember that salt kiln we started months ago, I finally got a welder out to the site and we are ready to set the arch, although I have no idea when we will get to it.
