New Day Pottery's Questions for me:

1. Where did you grow up.
 Central Vermont, then moved to Georgia during high school.
2. What is your favorite place to visit?
Someplace I've never been.
3. How many pottery mugs do you own that are not made by you?
hmmm...not sure I've ever counted. At least 40, probably more.
4.What is your favorite book?
Hopefully the one I'm reading.
5. How many art shows do you participate in every year?
Not as many over the past several years as I've been trying to 'nest' my studio, but still 4-6 locally/regionally.
6.What is your favorite pizza?
Thin crust, no cheese, spicy sauce, black olive, caramelized onion, baby bella mushrooms, roasted garlic. Sometimes a little julienned prosciutto too.
7. What kind of music do you listen to most?
Depends on what I'm doing - in the studio I may listen to 'All Songs Considered' when I want to hear new or off beat music, but then I'll also loop Springsteen albums on the ipod for 'comfort and joy'. One of my studio mates loves to blast Tom Waits, and another likes broadway soundtracks. It's all good.
8. Beach or Mountains?
9.Favorite TV show?
It used to be CBS Sunday Morning when I had a tv. 
10. Last movie you saw?
Looking for Sugarman -  HIGHLY recommend it.

Riding the bus from Tampa to Atlanta with my bestie after a week at soccer camp, probably driving everyone else on the bus crazy with our constant laughter.
