My first hero is a runner from Eugene, Oregon, named Steve Prefontaine (nice stache). I grew up in Roseburg, Oregon, about 60 miles south of Eugene. During high school I ran the 3000, and 5000 meter races. When I first learned of Prefontaine I was immediately hooked. It’s not that I wanted to be him, but I could relate and respect what he was going through as a runner, just like I was. There’s a quote on this picture that reads, “A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts”. You just might know about Steve and the type of man he was towards the end of his life. I think my next hero and Steve had similar personalities.
I think of these things when I work sometimes. Now that Crista and I have set up our new studio I found these little pictures in a box and put them back near the wheel. I’m excited to get to work again..and just make my own pots when I can.

Archie Bray Foundation here in Helena, Montana. There's always some sort of opening happening, or gathering..or maybe it's Wednesday Growler day at the local brewery where all the employees and artists meet to have a good pint of beer. To say the least I feel extremely grateful for being where I am.... there's always a lot happening. (even if they did reject my application for being a resident)
