I’m flying off to Amsterdam tomorrow night to go to this:
And I’m a little bit excited. For about £100, I’m flying out with Easyjet and staying in a very budget hotel near to the airport. Saturday morning, I’m going to have a wander around Amsterdam before meeting Aidan to visit the ‘More than Fat Lava’ West German Pottery (and more!) Exhibition. I’ve never been to Amsterdam before, so that’ll be a lovely treat in itself.
The exhibition has been put together by Kevin Graham, the mastermind behind the Pottery and Glass forum and Emiel Monnink who runs the Retrominded.com website. Mark Hill will be opening the ceremony at 3pm. As much as seeing the pottery itself, I’m excited to meet many of the people I’ve spoken to via the forum and other internet outlets.
Obviously, this means I’ll be incommunicado until we get back. Then next week begins the final slog of exam marking before my deadline on Friday 24th. I’m sure I’ll manage to squeeze in a bit of blog action before then to show off some pictures from the exhibition.
See you there!
