Fantastic visit with Ximena, Zoe, and Elenor Wilson at @thestudiopotter headquarters where I dropped off some bricks and discussed the future of the magazine. Elenor has recently taken over as the editor and is tasked with essentially figuring out how to keep The Studio Potter relevant in an age where print media is struggling. It’s no small task and I would encourage everyone in the ceramics community to help out. The Studio Potter is an amazing resource and has been, in my opinion, the premier ceramics journal in our field. Please, check out what they are doing and get involved in any way you can. It is really our magazine and we should take action to make it want we want it to be. I’ve found the staff to be very open to feedback, so get involved. #thestudiopottermagazine #thestudiopotterheadquarters #potterytour #apotterslife #buildingcommunity #buildingcommunityproject #communitybrick #community #communitybuilding

Building community. @robske200 with his new brick. I saw Rob’s emerging artist presentation at NCECA this year and like everyone in that room I was blown away. If you don’t know it already, check out his work. #buildingcommunity #buildingcommunityproject #communitybrick #communitybuilding #communitybrickproject #ceramics #community

Tom, the postmaster at the office in Damriscotta, Maine. One of my favorite things about the building community project is when I send the bricks in the mail. It’s always interesting and always a great opportunity to engage people in unexpected ways. When I walked in to mail the bricks, the other postal worker was confused as to whether I was allowed to mail a brick with out a box… But Tom knew… He said “he can mail a sock if he wants to”. Tom was a great help and very interested in the project. #mailingbricks #mailart #buildingcommunity #buildingcommunityproject #communitybrick #communitybrickproject #apotterslife
