"Hi Guy!  I'd love to look at your pottery, hard for me to get over there though.  Do you have a pottery website I could see?    Pottery and banjos do seem to go well together-   intimate vessels.   :)"

Hi Guy! 

I'd love to look at your pottery, hard for me to get over there though.  Do you have a pottery website I could see?    Pottery and banjos do seem to go well together-   intimate vessels.   :)

Thanks its a great trade and I love working with gardeners.. I have been working on the interior of the Issabella Stewart Gardener museum up in Boston  this last year .. The year before I had a cool grouping of 13 th century French pots for the Cloisters in NYC   .. Those are the orders that are the most fun !
