As usual it was great with 3 potters demonstrating simultaneously like a three ring circus. In the middle of the stage Julia Galloway was throwing pitcher and making her delicate pillow lids.

Although this is a fringe benefit, but the food this year was superb, from salad to entree to dessert.
And, of course no conference is complete without a visit to Dwight Holland's house, which was as delightful as ever. with the overload of pots and Dwight's knowledge, sharing and hospitality.
|Beer, wine, soft drinks and heritage flowed through the house|
|We counted 142 mugs hanging from the kitchen ceiling|
|Pots were everywhere floor to ceiling|
Most of the pots were the work of famous potters, from Reitz to Voulkos, to Sauldner and Hewitt; to Galloway, Myers, Oestrich and Mackenzie. and the tall to the ceiling Chinese pot acquired 2 years ago when the Chinese potters came to town .
Oh what a stimulating weekend that was. I can hardly wait till next year.
