I just returned from a week in the North Carolina
mountains. It was so nice to meet Cat and see her work at
the craft fair. And as she said, there were so many
wonderful potters and other crafters there. It's a
wonderful show and worth the trip. I just lucked out that
it was going on while my partner was attending the
Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference at Lake Junaluska.
(The next craft fair is in October, and I may try to go
back for it.)

One of Cat's newest pots is on the promotional website for
the show:
It's the teapot at the top. I also saw a photo of one of
her pots in a free newspaper.

Earlier in the week I went to the studios of the Energy
Xchange near Burnsville
( The potters
I met there were very friendly. One of them, Liz Sparks,
was also at the craft fair. My main reason for going,
though, was to see a glassblower--John Geci. Watching glass
being made is mesmerizing for me.
