Summer Days

There is plenty of snow on the ground, our apparel seems to be all about layers these days and the activity of the week has been skiing. Yet, all we seem to be talking about is summer! 

Our summer plans seem to be shaping up and it looks like we're going to be busy. Besides getting back into the studio and starting a new body of work this week, Robin has also been on email finalizing some details about a summer residence and couple of workshops he has been asked to teach. 

Robin has been asked to be the guest resident artist at the Medalta Potteries site in Medicine Hat, Alberta for the month of June. The Medalta Potteries National Historic site once produced over 75% of the pottery in Canada, and now has been turned into an interactive museum and clay residency program. It's an exciting opportunity, and the best part is that they are willing to put the whole lot of us up for the month. 

Right after Medalta, we'll head north to Red Deer (also in Alberta) where Robin will be teaching a woodfiring workshop as part of Red Deer College's Summer Art Series. There is another possible workshop in the works for out in Saskatchewan, and a memorial firing for our friend Tom Rohr that passed away out in Oregon too. Whew! Looks like summer 2010 will be the DuPont pottery travelling roadshow. As for today, we're off to the ski hill..........
