Slow around here on this steamy Sunday, June 23 2013, until the middle of the afternoon when Albert LeCoff arrives with two visiting dignitaries in tow. The visitors are Terry Martin, the noted journalist, turner and curator from Australia, and Eli Scearce, a teacher and long-time friend of the International Turning Exchange. Terry was an ITE fellow back near the start of this 18-year-old program, and Eli was shop assistant. After a good look around the shop, the team bounced over to Walnut Street for a middle eastern dinner (several vegetarians amongst us), then an evening stop at the Center for Wood Art. Neither Terry nor Eli had seen the new center, but the camera stayed home so I can’t share their amazed faces. We had another visitor on Friday, Mike Podmaniczky, also an early ITE fellow.
