We went to Dynamic Ceramic in Gilford, at their new location, yesterday, October 10, 2011. As ever it was fun and to me a blast-from-the-past.
In the last 1990s I used to go there often with my then young son — who is now 19. He made at least a dozen pieces, some large and intricate like a working lighthouse. We still have most of the pieces. A ‘mom-and-pup’ Golden Retriever piece he made for me, given my known penchant for Goldens, still sits on my desk, underneath my main monitor (even as I write this post).
This time around I took my 11 year old and the 5 year old — yesterday being the 11 year old’s birthday. (Yes, she was 10 on 10-10-10 and made the local paper). I am glad I went. The owner, Cindi, is still the same and as helpful as ever. Yes, prices have gone up over the years. But, most likely we will start going back — but probably not as often as we did in the 90s.
