If you could have three people from the ceramics world, living or dead to dinner, who would you choose?  Why? This could be a potter, sculptor, critic, writer or anyone associated with ceramics.  What would you want to talk about?

Mary MacLaughlin because of her perseverance.
Goerge Ohr because of his humor.
Beatrice Wood also her humor.

For ladies night ... Yes, I would have to have two dinners

Beatrice Wood
Dorothy Auman
Cynthia Bringle

I would just supply the food, wine or beer then sit back and listen as long as they wanted to talk.

DaVinci must have worked with clay at least once.

 

have to think about the others, can't watch them work at a dinner.

I would invite my current favorites--all from these forums.

 

John Baymore for his wisdom and humor,

TJ  for his humor and I want to know more about Canada

Jim "Offcenter" for his humor and common sense

add Benzine because he finishes my favorite quartet

 

They are all potters who willingly share their knowledge and leaven it with humor.  Add beer or wine and it's a party!

The trouble with forums is we don't really get to visit with one another. I know several people on here and meet them at NCECA for dinner or lunch or a drink. But it would be nice to teleport to Idaho's for a group
dinner.I did have dinner with John Baymore, Chris and others at NCECA. 2014 is Milwaukee.
Maybe if I met Jim and TJR I wouldn't get them mixed up.

I am trying to think of something witty here. I definitely would love to get together with a few of you from the blog.I get more witty the more wine I drink, or maybe it's all in my head. I tried to swing an educational panel for Milwaukie. Just couldn't get the support from my school.

I love NCECA.

Anyway, thanks for the complement.

TJR.

See?  See?  That's why I want them as dinner guests.  Marcia, maybe a referee could stand by, but I think you'd need an assistant . . . how 'bout we ask Chris Campbell to join us?  Now THAT would be a great party!

 

p.s. TJR, sorry I left off the R on first post.  Hope you recognized you.

If Jim was coming to dinner, I would eat off a grand piano with a Giffin grip centerpiece.
