I was simply trying to say we have clay suppiers making delivery's to our area. $80.00 shipping for a palet of clay is reasonable to me. In Kansas they may not have a pottery close, and it may cost more.
Living in this area I can say East liverpool is a hole in the wall, but they have a lovely pottery museum, and I feel it is worth a visit if your worldly travels ever bring you here. Traveling the world generally has a humbiling effect on most people. I am shocked ,and supprised that this upset you.
Historically referred to as the "Pottery Capital of the World" (I believe this is a misinterpritation, it should actually read "Pottery Capital of the USA" I think we can agree that this would be Historically 100% accurate)
I would wager the Tea Pot in Chester West Virgina...is not in fact the worlds largest, but I will still continue to wear the t-shirt.
