... this time it was Michael Back, who dropped by on the off chance. Mr Back held a clay seminar as part of the RHYZOM workshop in Höfen in June. He returned some hand made clay tiles that were made during the workshops and which he he had fired for free at the historic clay factory at the open air museum in Bad Windsheim. He came in for a drink and DJ talked to him about his pottery A levels and his old pottery tutor in Lancaster. We also talked a bit about plans for the Höfer Waren 2010 and the idea to develop a new product that combines fruit and clay. He's an incredibly nice and knowledgeable man and offered to stay involved further. He left with a nice bottle of red Frankonian wine for now, and watch this space for some new clay product development.
