We'll we did have a good time on our trip to Gatlinburg. Maybe in my next post I'll do the Mom thing, and put up some photo's of our family adventures. Today I thought I'd keep it pottery related and because lets face-it, even when your on most vacations, and your a potter, your still sort of seek out art or pots of some sort. Arrowmont School of Craft is right in the heart of Gatlinburg and I've enjoyed many trips there for classes and Conferences. But my most favorite part of visiting Arrowmont is seeing my old friend from East Carolina, Amy Evans and Chuck McMahon. Amy and I where in Grad School School together and at times seemed like the only females in the department making girly pots so naturally, we stuck together and had many, many silly adventures. Chuck also was in the pottery department and graduated before the two of left and went onto to work for Highwater clay in Asheville/Florida and than moved onto Arrowmont and was studio coordinator for the ceramic department.( I think that was the right title for what he did..correct me if I mis-spoke!) Somewhere in all this Amy and Chuck met up again and got married and we've kept in touch.
Here's Chuck with Finley.
