So long for now, NYC…

I'm excited to share that me and Billy are taking a drive to New Mexico!! We will be making stops along the way to learn about regional ceramics materials and techniques. I'm partnering with Bruichladdich, a small Scottish whisky company, as part of their effort to help other artisans learn about their "ingredients". Over the course of a few meals I learned we have a lot of the same goals -- to create our products by hand, in small batches, without cutting corners. And while they know every ingredient in their whisky and where it came from, I'm hoping to find out more about my materials through visiting local producers along the route and seeing how my clay and glazes are made. I'll be Instagramming on their account about what I learn, and when I return I'll use the inspiration from the trip to create a very special ceramic edition for them. Follow them: @bruichladdich
