What’s Up Granby #3

What’s Up Granby is a youtube (and channel 15 cable) program that highlights Granby, Massachusetts related things. One sunny spring day, I was interviewed by producer and host (and my friend) Andrea Kennedy. We had such a good time sipping vino and chatting. It’s about 44 minutes, so set aside some time and make some popcorn and get yourself a glass of wine and enjoy the conversation.

(For Kathy)

Artist’s Note: Kintsugi, which means “golden joinery,” is the ancient Japanese art of repairing broken pottery using lacquer from a tree mixed with fine gold dust. To this day, kintsugi pottery is a reminder that an object can far more beautiful and valuable if we embrace its cracks and imperfections. The same can be said about the beauty in people.
