Pot Hop and Jam & Hinckley Pottery & Washington DC

We have a glaze kiln firing right now with a few pieces decorated with fish and insects. On Friday we are off to Washington DC for Pot Hop and Jam - a joint home show with Mark Shapiro and Sam Taylor. There is a Pot Jam -- four potters demonstrating--scheduled for Saturday evening at Hinckley Pottery. We are looking forward to visiting the big city and meeting new people. If you are in the area we hope you will be able to come out and see us. If you have any questions or need detail directions please give us a call or e-mail us and we will call you. Our e-mail is bulldog at
When we get back it will be full throttle onwards to Cousins in Clay on June 5 and 6!

Here is some of the info for the demo Saturday. Visit Hinckley Pottery's website for more info and directions.

I loved reading about how the cousins are "related" on the Cousins blog. How do you know Mark Shapiro and Sam Taylor? I live in Mass, but I've never been to see them. Hope you are good,

Hi Jeff, We are well thanks!
Interesting coincidence. Cass has visited our studio a few times and the last time he mentioned offering us a home show at his place in DC. He then mentioned he knew a potter named Mark Shapiro because he is the brother of his neighbor and he has had a home show with her in the past. Afterwards, as we were arranging the details he suggested that maybe we could hold the home show and sale at the same time as Mark and Sam. We juggled many dates and came up with this weekend! We know Mark's and Sam's work but this will be the first time that we meet them in person.
