Old Tyme class photo from our Arrowmont class 2019.
Each class I teach is special to me. This one has been unique in that it is entirely young people. Usually I get a mix of ages, which can be really great.
The energy and enthusiasm of this class has been off the charts.
We fired the wood kiln, which was the plan all along, but the students also fired the gas soda kiln. That was a total bonus and they ran the whole firing amongst themselves.
It was great to see. This truly has been a special group.
Thanks to all y’all for bringing it!!!!

It’s my birthday.
I really don’t like making a fuss about it usually… but this is a big one.
My mum sent me these images of birthdays from years past.
It’s weird growing older, cause generally I feel the same.
I remember thinking that people who were 40 were old…
I don’t know. I still think my best years are ahead of me!

Happy birthday America!
I’m in my usual full embrace of Gatlinburg as I teach at the Arrowmont craft school.
I’ve taught ceramics all over the world but there is really no place like Gatlinburg, especially Gatlinburg during the 4th of July!

I’m teaching at Arrowmont right now.
The past few weeks leading up to this class were such a whirlwind that I had to largely ignore the internet.
But now I’ve come back up for air to tell y’all that I love Arrowmont, I love teaching, and I love the people in my class.
