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 !
