and so much has happened over the past month.
By far the biggest experience was witnessing the passing of my dearest friend Glenn Gagnier! March 3rd, 1954 – June 5th, 2014.
I took this shot way back in the early 80′s. we were both doing a show in Ottawa!
It’s difficult to write about such an experience, but all i want to do is honor him here. He was an amazing potter, a wonderful father and he was one of my very deepest and long standing friends.
To be able to spend 5 days by his side was an amazing gift! he passed about a week and half later and i am eternally grateful to have been able to be with him at that time.
spending time with his 2 sons, Kaydn and Taevan….hadn’t seen either of them for almost 5 years and they have matured into such beautiful young men……and i can see the mark Glenn has made on their lives. Along with the beautiful pottery he created, his 2 sons are a wonderful legacy for all of us to be reminded of him!
I got to spend 3 days in Montreal with another long time friend, just after leaving Glenn, which was just what i needed! Paulo and his family took such great care of me….we ate delicious meals, we walked, we explored…we talked and we laughed!
Lots of pots being made in the studio…but not many being photographed…so here are some more shots of life here on Big Hill.
