As we commented about how the river had seen so many people go along its banks through the centuries, I share just a smidge about one of my ancestors.
|Marker in Huntsville, TX for Sabra Wilbourn Gibbs|
The connection from the Gibbs and the Rogers family is entwined through several siblings marrying to the other family...a brother of Lucinda's married her husband's sister. Nothing to frown upon here!
But let's just fast forward to today. One of the potters who displayed at the Potters of Madison County show in Marshall, NC.
|Fellow blogger Dan Finnegan from Virginia was invited to the show!|
|I am completely taken by his not-so-little bird sculptures.|
|He fires with wood, playing with glazes and slips and a bit of salt firing as well.|
He also is on Facebook, and I met him through his blog. I can't find the link to that, so maybe he's not doing it anymore.(Added after comments: http://danfinneganpottery.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/follow-me.html )
|This is the sister of the mug which I brought home with me.|
