I teach elementary art at a school in Atlanta, Ga. I will be in
London/area May 30-June 11/faculty summer sabbatical. Plan is to visit a
few schools/ceramic education, galleries and museums/ceramics, and would
like to visit ceramic studios to meet potters, see their work, take photos
of experiences. Information collected will aid in annual school exhibit I
am initiating, "Walker's Colossal Clay Experience."
Am interested in hearing from anyone in London/very close surrounding areas
who could offer suggestions on the above plans. Will be traveling with my
daughter,19. Will appreciate your responses.

Can we assume you mean London England? I live in London Ontario Canada and
can help out if that's what you mean but I think it's not!

I live in my own little world.....but it's okay, they all know me here.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, because you are crunchy and
taste good with ketchup.

Glad you came clear, I know nothing about London ontario but plenty
about London England.

When are you going to be there again?

My "Potter's Portal" is

searchng for British potters' names you will gradually work up some
useful links to potters and galleries in London.

This fairly good search site but not alot of detail
