Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play

Just a little flashback to calmer days… when we could pedal our bikes through colorful & hilly routes without a care in the world… with thousands of other bikers on THE HILLY HUNDRED. Sadly, this weekend would have been THE HILLY HUNDRED if it weren’t for this crazy corona-thing! It was always my favorite ride of the year… a hundred miles through rolling hills of incredible views & Fall colors down in southern Indiana.

And this flashback photo is even funnier… because it’s with my friend Nancy who I met while biking a “hundred” years ago. And it was actually on one of our many Hilly Hundred bike rides that we decided to take our first pottery class together! And the rest is history… I’ve never stopped working & making pots at Lillstreet Art Center. While Nancy took a short break to start a family but is now back making pots again! In fact, you would have seen us both at Art In The Barn in Barrington last month… if that hadn’t been cancelled too!!! Mwah, mwah, mwah…
