I hope that you have gotten to the Freer and Sackler Museum. If you have
not found them -- they are part of the Smithsonian. There was, or is, an
amazing show of large vessels there --I believe it was at the Freer but might
be Sackler. They are right next to each other -- you can go from one to the
other without going outside. Hopefully the show it is still on. The phone
number is 202-357-4880. The museum is on 12 and Independence.
In the Freer basement I have heard one is allow to hold pottery pieces if
you call ahead. I have always meant to do this.
Also if you have time and it would be a lot closer for you go to Clayworks
outside of Baltimore. You might call them and ask them what they have on
exhibit. They had an amazing teapot show on a few months back. Also, there
is a wonderful museum in Baltimore. You might call to see what their
exhibits are currently. Probably can find on web. Hope this is helpful!

The Artisitc Imaginings in Clay show will open Oct. 10 at 5:30 at the
Museo de Arte de Las Americas
1889 F st. NW. The show run thru Jan. 15, 2002/
It looks like there will be some great pieces in it by recognizable
names like Amanda Jaffe who I really admire. I too have pieces in the as well.
I believe the Tile Heritage also have sponsored a show at the Torpedo
Factory Art Center in Alexandria called Tile: Out of the Box.
Best wishes for a safe trip.
