I am a professional crafts person, working in clay and fibre, not necessarily at the same time. I am a juried member of the New Brunswick Crafts Council, The Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council and the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design.
Well folks you may recall that on Labour day weekend, your girl Lizzie was dividing her time between being President of the craft council at the festival, and knitting up a storm at the casemates residency. What you may not know is that at the festival was a potter demonstrating. No folks it was not me this time. It was a talented young fellow by the name of Lee Horus Clark. Now Lee makes interesting things with clay, very interesting. And occasionally big things. Very big things. Very Big and hard to transport things. This is where I come in to the story. I have through default and sheer lunacy become the custodian of Lee's latest very large pot. It was supposed to be only a week. The pot is bigger than my kids, and nearly 200 pounds of clay were used in the making. no that is not a typo. it really is 200 pounds of clay.Cool Huh?
