Update on Readers Digest (my Camry): apparently the mass airflow sensor of a 1991 Camry alltrac is not a readily available part and I will not be able to get one till Friday… So it looks like I’m going to be having a short unplanned Virginia vacation. This is my first time being “broke down somewhere waiting for parts” and I honestly have to say that it’s not that bad. It certainly could be a lot worse. I’m gonna visit some friends here in Harrisonburg and then spend tomorrow with my family in Floyd. Time to make some lemonade! #brokedownwaitingforparts #potterytour #apotterslife #apotterontheroad

It’s been a @thestudiopotter kind of day. I started my day with a coffee, a tour of the unbelievably quaint New England town of Shelburne Falls, and a great conversation with THE Mary Baringer… And I got to visit her original COMMUNITY brick I sent to her 8 years ago when I first started the project…they are still talking about it at the post office (more on that later). #potterytour #buildingcommunity #buildingcommunityproject #community #communitybrick #communitybuilding #communitybrickproject #apotterslife #adventure

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

Some image highlights from a visit to @danielpottery and @kayetjohnston place today. The pictures barely do the job of telling the story of what these two amazing makers are creating with their work and their space. #johnstonpottery #seagrove #potterytour #kilntour #ncpottery #apotterslife #ceramics
