Flashback to the 70's

I guess I'm staying with the 'back in the day" theme.

While in the states I visited a dear potter friend, Bacia Edelman, now in her 80's and still potting.

She lived in London during part of the 70's. While there she visited many of the potters of the day and based on her photos and interviews had a series of 3 articles published in the American ceramics magazine, Ceramics Monthly.

These are a few of the her photos that I scanned while I was there.

Many of them have departed and are missed. I thought people might enjoy seeing these.

They are (not in order) Eileen Lewenstein, Ray Finch, Mick Casson, Michael Cardew, David Leach fluting a bowl, Robert Fournier, Sheila Fournier, David Leach and his Kiln,

Thanks Ron!

Did you get to watch the Leach video which I finally decided to put up again?

Of course, Ray Finch is still making pots at 94!
