Remembering Jane Hatcher
I'm sad to share the news that Jane Hatcher passed away Monday night. Jane was - among other things - a potter, massage therapist, yoga teacher and friend to many, especially in and around the Penland area. She was curious about people and the things they did and made and thought, and genuinely a joy to be around. She was a Clay Clubber going way back - a quick search brought her up in photos from our second meeting in July 2008.
I met Jane not long after I moved to Bakersville. In the winter of 2007-08 we took a glaze class with John Britt, along with a number of other clubbers. Jane, John Ferlazzo and I worked on some of the class assignments together - this photo is from that time.
Rest in peace, Jane. We will miss you.
