Jean, congrats on getting Doug Gray to do a workshop. I spent a few hours
with him in July and saw some of his double walled bowls in progress. He is
a very friendly and sharing individual. Wish I could be there but it is a
long way from Mississippi. I will probably see him the end of October when
we go back to Florence SC. Francis Marion University (where Doug teaches)
has a wonderful facility for clay. Have a great workshop.

Hello potters,

On Saturday, October 16, 2004 Doug Gray is holding a workshop on making
double-walled vessels at Cape Fear Studios in Fayetteville, NC. The
studios are in downtown Fayetteville at 148-1 Maxwell Street (just off
Russell Street and just down the road from the Arts Council.) Mr. Gray is
an associate professor of Ceramics at Francis Marion University in
Florence, CS. He is a contributing editor for Pottery Making Illustrated
and has held numerous workshops throughout the Southeast. The workshop
will last from 9:30 until around 4:00 PM. The cost will be $25 and will
include a box lunch if we are notified in time to order one for you. This
is a really good deal and should be a lot of fun (and educational)!!

Why don=92t you bring along a pot or two and put it into our pottery
competition at the same time! Mr. Gray will also be the juror for the
competition. The cost for entry into the competition is also $25 and
allows up to two entries per potter. There are lots of prizes for
functional and nonfunctional pottery totally $1100!! The pieces entered
will remain on display at the studios from Friday October 22, 2004 (Fourth
Friday) until Wednesday, November 24, 2004. The Fourth Friday openings
have become very popular in Fayetteville and have many hundreds of people
who now attend each month. The competition and the workshop are open to
ALL potters who are within driving distance of Fayetteville.

Unfortunately our pottery fair that was scheduled for October 23, 2004 had
to be cancelled because we did not have enough qualified potters that sent
in applications by the due date. We had thought this would be a good
event for Fayetteville to become educated on good pottery and give them a
chance to buy it locally. Hopefully we=92ll be able to try again next year.=

For further information or reservations, please email Jean Curtin at Or call Cape Fear Studios to reserve a seat for
the workshop at 910 433-2986.

Thanks. Have a great day!
Jean Curtin
