Hi Lou, this is the info I saw: I teach a clay class at McDaniel College , Westminster Maryland . We haven't used our Walker Pugmill in many years. It is in good shape. maybe a couple blades are bend but it runs and is ready to work. But I could not allow young students to operate it. All safety's are there but !!! I am thinking 1000.00 Ken Hankins, Shiloh Pottery . 410-239-8888 Seeya, Min

    I used to love raku results in damp weather ... Hope it works out well for you.

Tidying up the studio, making room for the plants that need to come back into "their" greenhouse for the winter. Must find more space in the other greenhouse.

The moment, when you just realized, that you forgot to ask a student, if they poked a vent hole in their intricate sculpture, that you are now firing...

    No worries. The student came in, and they vented it, through the mouth that was part of the sculpture.

    I try. This student though, extremely talented, and will spend hours on these incredible, subtle details. But sometimes, will ignore things that are the most obvious.
