1. Credit Card Process
A Colorado resident said Verizon would cover the area the best. I purchased an used smartphone and decided to get a one-month prepaid coverage a week prior to my departure. Two people recommended Square to process credit card transactions. I registered with the company, received a reader, and practiced processing with my own credit card.
*** Swiping a credit card through a Square reader can be tricky. I strongly recommend you practice with it. ***
2. Special Event Sales Tax License
I took care of the necessary paperwork in advance. Neither the city nor the state required the special event participant to carry the sales tax license with him/her at the time of the event, as long as he/she had a copy of the application forms.
*** The event organizer gave us wrong information about the sales taxes, and it was confusing. I found it was the best to contact the appropriate revenue department for questions. ***

Started as an exersize in clay shrinkage and designing to fit.
As we know, clays have different shrinkage numbers and temp certainly has an effect on that shrinkage.
The experiment started with just going by the shinkage numbers given with the clay body. I soon discovered that there is some deviation to that number (they should give the average shrinkage and an observed deviation). But I digress.
I liked the way they looked and they were different. So......
I measure the appropriate dimensions on the found glass objects, interesting things from thrift stores. I then throw a base and a lid, based on the glass dimension, plus the published shrinkage, plus a fudge factor that you have to determine with the clay you are using.
I bisque, the glaze, fire to cone 5 (stoneware). Usually now, I get a pretty good fit. Sometime the lid is a little big or small though. if I like the way the lid looks, I'll grind or add cork or foam filler.
I found that folk like and actually buy these. If you want more info, shoot me an emai.
