Arrived in London today at 8 am for a three day stay in the theatre district. As our hotel room wasn't ready yet, we headed over to the British Museum on foot for the morning. It has been a lifelong dream of mine, starting at the age of 8 ( yes, I was a geeky child) to see the Rosetta Stone and Elgin Marbles. It was all quietly stunning. What a pleasure to see archaeological treasures I studied in college up close and personal for the first time ever.

The workshop has been incredible so far. Kathy Triplett is a warm and generous teacher and I've had the rare chance to just play with clay. The first morning was spent texturing 3 inch square tiles of soft clay in as many ways as we could think of with traditional and improvised tools. 6 hours just playing. How marvelous!
