some of my buddies
(Matt, Tom, Karen at the Cornell Pot Shop)
The Cornell Pot Shop is available to anybody, from high schoolers to college students and professionals. Rare moment this morning, there were 4 of us in there working and gossiping, all professionals. I finished some stuff, but let me introduce you to Karen. She is from a pottery family and has been making pots her whole life. Her son gets married in June, and she is making 240 goblets for the reception. Everybody there will toast the day with a handmade goblet and then take it home!
Matt and Tom are both house husbands like me. Matt makes massive pieces that take several hours each. Plus takes care of his little girl.
Tom's 3 kids are 8-15 and don't need him around as much, so he makes a lot of pots during the day. He is also a hockey player and is his daughter's Girl Scout Leader.
Not exactly traditional husbands, are we? ;)
