My friend Vicki Gill has started blogging. I am not sure how Vicki and I met, it was either through the Claymatters Pottery Guild or at the Treasures of the Earth Show. I guess that was about 8 or more years ago. Vicki is an excellent potter and lives about 25 miles east of here in Gastonia. There she maintains a studio and gallery named Bluegill Pottery. It's a very nice space with a gallery up front and room for classes in the back. Vicki is known for her textured and carved pots. We both love many of the same potters and both enjoy attending the NC Potter's Conference every year in Asheboro. Be sure to visit her website too.
