Today being a perfect fall day, Jay and I went on a bike ride on the “voie verte,” an old train track turned bike trail. I thought it would be pretty flat, since it was supposed to be on the old train line…but the section we did went off the original line, and was quite hilly. I think it was the hardest workout I’d had since college soccer.
It wasn’t without lovely views (like this castle, Berze-le-Chatel), which gave us the opportunity to stop and let our heart-rate even out.
Since we were in the Cluny area, we took the opportunity to stop by Blandine Desbois-Berthet’s pottery studio, “Poterie de Chateau,” located in the hamlet of Chateau.
Blandine works on the wheel, and has a great collection of bowls, cups, vases (I found a bowl for a friend’s birthday present—happy 30th, Ashli!)…but she also has been developing these wonderfuly creative and spirited sculptures that you can tell she is just loving working on.
Thanks, Blandine, for sharing your work with us and giving us a peek into your studio! Best wishes!
