While I was in Cambridge, England I also took the oportunity to take up ceramics again.  I spent 9 monday nights in a ceramics studio at Hills Road 6th Form College.  I hadn't done any ceramics since grad school at Columbia University in NYC where I'd pop down to the studio while my DNA sequencing gels ran.  So, in Cambridge, where Watson and Crick determined the structure of the DNA double helix, and where Sanger devloped the DNa sequencing methods that we all still use, I isloated DNA, ran it on gels, and played with some clay on the side.

This is one of the pots that I ended up with.  The body of the pot was thrown, the faces hand-built, all out of stoneware.  I have named it "Facepot" in a burst of extraordinary creativity.
