What a shame, I lost a kiln to floods but it was a blessing in disguise. Only wish I had raided it for all the spare parts but I was less knowledgeable back then.


I think the uneducated just see the words global warming and think sunny weather not more extreme weather. Amazing to see glacial evidence that some people still choose to ignore.

One physical test is worth a thousand expert opinions.

"To me the greatest thing is to live beauty in our daily life and to crowd every moment with things of beauty.  It is then, and then only that  the art of the people as a whole is endowed with it's richest significance.  For it's products are those made by great a many craftsmen for the mass of the people, and the moment this art declines the life of the nation  is removed far away from beauty.  So long as beauty abides in only in a few articles created by a few geniuses, the kingdom of beauty is nowhere near realization."                                                                                 - Bernard Leach

As in this world, we have had ice ages, desertification, floods(ah Noah) and pole reversals that mankind has had no part in. I am one of the Luddites that hold to a different notions.

If I make a pot I, have the right to do with it whatever I want. I hold to a Master Potter belief, but each to his own.

If you think it's bad now, the Book I read Sez's you ain't seen nothing yet.

But that's just me :)
