Seagrove , Asheville , Penland and @klineola ! 


I met the wonderful Carol Gentithes and Fred Johnston while they were in Australia , presenting a workshop at Vipoo Srivilasa studio CLAYLAB in my hometown of Melbourne.

Such an incredible studio in Seagrove !!


I keep saying this , but people have been INCREDIBLY kind and generous ! 

Carole took us for a quick visit to STARWORKS NC !


 Andy Nasisse was building a piece for the upcoming FIREFEST at Starworks .

There are a great number of pieces from past events in a beautiful gallery space , as well as a dedicated gallery for new works , glass & ceramics . 


And KILNS !! 


TODAY was one of those FABULOUS jam packed over booked but totally worth it days !! 


We had a 24 second visit with the DYNAMO of a woman MELISSA WEISS at her incredible studios in Asheville NC . 


SO fantastic to meet all these wonderful people in the REAL ! 

Melissa collects her clay from her property in ARKANSAS 😳

Once a year ……

…….and then processes it to a special Melissa secret wild clay recipe !

Penland School of Crafts ❤️


We met up with CLAYBROTHER Michael Kline , who generously showed us around this INCREDIBLE school !

And a SUPER quick visit to his home studio 


We did a fun little livestream video on Michaels PERISCOPE 😊


Mr Kline must be the KINDEST Potter on the PLANET ! (And Jack the pup is pretty ace too !) 


And now we are on our way to Washington DC ! 

Cheers
