  1. I feel so much better after reading this! I thought I was really losing it when I also cannot find the tool I just set down on the table! Sometimes, I put out only the tools that I am likely to use. Sometimes, I can find just the right tool that I am looking for. Sometimes, the tool I am looking for has been tucked into the towel on my knee and I have looked and looked for it Only found it when I stood up to find the duplicate!!!
  2. Yes, I finally have enough pieces to only use those that I have made. I will finish our new dinnerware after the holiday rush. It is very satisifying to set a table with your own work!
  3. Who Of You Is Making Funeral Urns?

    Making an urn for the cremains of a loved one is an honor for me to do. If my small talent can offer comfort to someone, it seems like the least I can do.
  4. My love affair with clay got off to a rocky start due a teacher who made a big deal about me being left handed. He threw so many obstacles at me that I hand built for several years to avoid the wheel. I was convinced I would never learn to throw. Enter a skilled teacher who banished the obstacles and was patient and encouraging. I learned to center with my eyes closed relying on feel and was soon centering like a champ! Then the challenge was learning to pull a wall. Finally it came together and I am a POTTER! I now have a wheel and kiln at home and can work to my heart's content. All pottery instructors are not good teachers. It really takes a special combination of skills to work with pottery students.
  5. Amaco "Potter's choice" glazes

    I also use Potters Choice glazes and found a wonderful board for PC glazes on Facebook. Very helpful info for those of us who do not mix our own glazes. Lots of photos and encouragement.
