Dan Finnegan: For One Day Only

This Saturday saw the Scottish Potters Association host a one day “American Tea Party” workshop at my pottery. The demonstrator extraordinaire was none other than Mr Dan Finnegan. Here he is, trying to blend in with the natives of this fine land of Scotland.

The poster I had to offer was not nearly as impressive in scale as that which Dan provided for myself and Doug last year in America unfortunately.

He’s such a great chap, friendly and smiley and endless banter in amongst all the tips and tricks and thoughts about pots and pottery.

Here is a part of our merry gang of Scottish Potters Association members. I think fun was had by all, even by those who I accidentally sent to the wrong restaurant to meet us on the previous evening, I am so very sorry and so very embarrassed.

Paul and Dan enjoying a hard earned meal. We seem to have done a lot of eating this last week, it’s been really good to share great food with great people. (I associate this ‘over the top of the glasses’ look with Hollis though).

This was Tuesday morning as Dan headed southwards via castles and potteries to his English residence at Conderton Pottery and the home of the Milways’. It has been splendid to have Dan here and to return some oft he hospitality that he showed to use last year. We did some sightseeing though Threave Castle was closed sadly, you take a small boat across the river to get there and the landing stages were underwater with the amount of rain that we have had. However we did have a visit to Cream o’ Galloway and of course had to try the ice cream before we popped to the beach where one of us paddled and one did nae, I shall let you guess which was which. We saw red kites, ate more good food and stared at lovely views.

I’ll see you shortly but do come back soon please Dan, you are always welcome.
