Once a year...

we do an exchange of pottery at Mahonia Hall (Residence of the Governor).
We've been doing this exchange for over 10 years, displaying these beautiful pots for the various tours that pass through the house. Each year when we do the change over, new potters bring work for the cabinets and previous potters remove their work.
All the work is on loan for one year thanks to these generous artists. Thank you to the Governor for enlightening the public on great art!

We were delighted to have lunch with the First Lady, we had great conversation and photo opportunities!

Each potter chatted and explained their processes.

Even the "First Dog" got into the action!

Proud to be a potter on this particular day.
