OUTCOME OF THE POTTERS FACE OFF/SHOWDOWN AT THE TERRE HAUTE ART
We set up our wheels facing each other and demonstrated for onlookers.
It was fun, but only one of use was left sitting...
==================== Clipped from article =======================
I had no choice Marshall Dylan; there was only room for one of us in
that one wheel town. It was me or the clay. I told him he could get back
on his potters wheel and spin right out of town. He turned around and
left, but he came back and said, "I had to come back." I said "We don't
have to do this." He said "Yes, because I have to find out.", so I said
"Go ahead punk, make my clay", and I shot him off his potters' wheel in
the hot noon sun before he even started to get his clay centered. They
buried him in the potters' field and I made twenty mugs and twenty vases
and gave 'em all to his widowed wife and left to go home to Rockville
where the wild Covered Bridge painters had burned my homestead to the
ground, but that is another story. "A Fistful of Clay" or maybe it will
be "The Good, Bad and the Messy" (Potters that is).
Sorry if this is too light hearted for "serious artists" we were just
having fun and really did make some good work and did serious
