From East to West; Go West young man; the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, the adages are many… Ancestors on my maternal grandfather’s side, people of Alsatian stock, journeyed west in a wagon train accompanied by friends of the family, leaving the territory that is now Kansas. Both the California Gold Rush and the Alaska Gold Rush made people scurry west. Then, rail lines traversed the width of the U.S., sealing the link between east to west in the United States. And so our own journey ends, as this is the last stop for ceramics blogs on the Open Directory. (To be fair, there is one more, in Spain and you can click here to see it.) Again, it’s a lovely thing to be able to see such a high concentration of ceramics blogs and I hope you enjoy perusing them… I am a little surprised that there are no blogs from the Northwest in this directory, given the abundance of potteries, studios and people who work with the medium in this neck of the woods. I don’t know what accounts for that, just as I don’t know why there were so many from North Carolina yesterday.
