Technology has brought us to the point where I rarely get bills in the mail. Now I get to check the mail with a sense of excitement again. Often it’s junk mail that goes directly into the recycling bin. I wish they would just send it to the recycling center and save some energy. Sometimes it’s something good. Today’s mail brought a thick letter from Penland School of Crafts. A thick letter from them means something good.
I was chosen to be a studio assistant for Jeremy Randall who hand builds with earthenware. As you know I normally throw with stoneware so this will be a great learning experience. I’m really excited about that aspect. I also expect it will help make me a better teacher since I like starting my students with hand building. I think it gives them a great foundation for working with clay. No matter what it’s going to be fun and I’ll get to see old friends and make new ones.
