my first job in eleven years???



(Sam and Jeremy show their stuff)
My poor students. First thing I tell them is that unless they object, they will be photographed and posted, as I do with anybody who wanders through my life.
In June of 1997 I retired from teaching and started making pots full-time, and I am lucky, pretty much if I make it I can sell it. BUT I was asked to teach non-credit pottery classes at Cornell's Potshop. My first employment since 1997, wow. Last night was the advanced class. Sam and Jeremy both have a ton of skills and experience, so it will be fine-tuning and moving ahead for them this summer.

I think it would be fun to take a class from you. And um...non-credit would be right up my alley - that way you couldn't flunk me! LOL

*Sigh*. I don't often see the back of my own head but every time I do, there's a little more skin showing.
