Meredith, of Whynot Pottery has conceived of, and is organizing a show called “Clay and Blogs: Telling a Story” that will take place in early October in Seagrove, North Carolina. I think there are about 44 potters from all over the world that will be participating – New Zealand, Australia, Spain – just to name a few of the all-over-the-world places. Organizing and communicating with all of these people must be a huge undertaking, especially when Meredith has to keep repeating herself with some people because their spam filter is so picky. (Am I the only one?) As if that isn’t enough, she is also putting together an online show to run concurrently. Pretty impressive.

I’m really flattered to have been invited to participate because the show includes some of my favorite potters and bloggers, so it would be great to be in Seagrove in October to actually see the show and meet people I have been “talking” with. (Not to mention that just being in NC in October would be gorgeous. Last week I watched the movie, Goodbye Solo that took place in NC in the Fall and the red on some of the trees was unreal.)

One element of the show will be excerpts from blogs and maybe a statement about why we blog. That will take some pondering to put into words, but I do know that one of the reasons is community and Meredith is very good at helping to create this. She has a very distinctive voice in her own blog and the comments she leaves on other blogs. Her support, concern, experience, and humor show through in all of them.

Thank you Meredith, for bringing together all these potterbloggers and being willing and able to organize this show.

  1. Hi BE,

    Thanks, you are too kind.
    This is a pretty big bite, but the excitment and buzz are out there.
    I am so happy you are part of this show.
    Try to come- there might be a grant in your area that would cover travel.
    And the fall in NC is beautiful.

  2. Barbara, I hope that you make it to the show! I am trying to figure out a way to attend the opening & would LOVE the opportunity to meet you in person. I feel like I already know you. 🙂

  3. looking forward to it… it should be a riot
