Meet the Toe River Artists
“One of the most critical choices in my life was to leave the urban arena of Washington, D.C., 36 years ago and move to the mountains of Western North Carolina. There seems to be a certain rightness here. There are larger rhythms. The trees and mountains shrink you right down. I’m less serious about clay than I have ever been. Other priorities such as family, friends and neighbors, running and soccer, take me away from the clay and yet seem to allow me to accomplish more with it.”
