Class reunion: Steve Klein downunder…

This post is kind of like an inverse Foreign Correspondence…

Steve Klein, who’s out in Oz to give kiln-forming workshops in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, has just been down to the Far South Coast with wife Diana for a bit of R&R (before heading back to Sydney to kick off the business end of the trip.)

The Gang first met Steve over at Pilchuck in 2004, when he was TAing for Klaus’s workshop – and so the visit was a rather nice mini-class-reunion. We spent a lovely couple of days introducing them to all the local charms: chucking them in gaol/jail, taking them to the Australasia, etc, etc (…anyone who’s been down to stay will know the drill!!) 

And, obviously, it was also all about Steve catching up with the Klaus-meister…

The weather held out, the mussels were huge and the great Aussie reds nothing less than superlative! Quick pics at…

Meanwhile Steve’s got a neat little film on YouTube – which you can check it out at…
