    My heart sank just now as I received the shocking news that my teacher, a master Potter, has passed. I did not get to see him on my recent trip to Barbados, but I heard his voice on the radio, still advocating, a potter to the very end. He was a very integral part of forming the potter I am today. To his entire family, especially Maggie and Peter, I extend my deepest condolences!
