I made a few pots this afternoon after running a few errands and meeting my 'scholar' friend Ellen Denker for lunch at the Hilltop Diner in Burnsville. We caught up with each others doings and talked pottery and such. Ellen has been a curator of museum shows about the Arts and Craft movement, material culture, folk art, and now she's living in High Point directing the North Carolina Furniture Heritage Project at the High Point Museum. Today she told me about meeting a certain Dr. Gougelmann, an ocularist from New York. Read his story here. (which leads to this, circling back to talk of pottery) There's never a dull conversation with Ellen!
