Day trip to Concord (without Paul Revere)
So... last week we explored the town of Concord.
Upon first arriving on "Main Street" (you would not believe how many small New England towns actually HAVE a main street that is CALLED "Main Street") I found the cupola of the Unitarian Church framed by brick work (possibly chimneys) on a building between it and me.
I had a Big BLT panini... WITH avocado. It reminded me of the summer sandwiches my father used to make. Nice memory.
They were having a wine/cheese and cracker reception honoring their exhibition of Warren Mackintosh work. I wasn't familiar with his work, but I liked it immediately. Definitely earth-related. Functional and interesting shapes with muted glazes.
Tea pots are hard to make... especially to have them be artistic AND functional. I'm not positive this one fits the criteria.
The on-line pages about her indicated that she had already been making pots for 60+ years. From the cover of this one, none of that time was wasted!
The stone was dated 1888--- and looked comparatively new.
I'm putting some of their books on my wish list!
Low and behold... her was the mill.
