I posted this notice, after doing research on the mysteries of Leopard Spot Shinos and how to get them.. I ended up  attended this workshop in Huntington Beach, California,

held at the GEIL KILNS manufacturing center and headquarters.  This workshop was a bargain. In a semi-hands on experience as I did not have to load the kiln...They packed 3 days full of a variety of informational topics including, glazing, loading, firing, Tom Coleman throwing and trimming. and Paul Geil lecturing about kiln technologies.  And it was a plus not to have to worry about getting something to eat for lunch, surprised... lunches were included..


Paul was an incredible guy with a wealth of knowledge, an innovator, a engineer through and through. And Tom Coleman, what can I say about Tom Coleman... He's an incredible Potter, He's an entertainer with a life time of stories to tell, he's wise with knowledge and experience, and just a down to earth guy you'd like to have a beer with.  I didn't feel as if I was being sold a kiln so much as I felt I was exploring and building onto the foundation of knowledge to improve a skill set.  Finishing.


I highly recommmend Geil workshops to anyone wanting to explore and fine tune your finishing skills. 


I've attached some quick images I took during the kiln unloading.

What these images don't show is how much fun we all had.  What a great group of potters!Attached File  IMG_2913.JPG   73.92KB   0 downloadsAttached File  IMG_2950.JPG   72.98KB   0 downloadsAttached File  Untitled-0.jpg   60.42KB   0 downloadsAttached File  Untitled-1.jpg   47.31KB   0 downloadsAttached File  Untitled-2.jpg   90.09KB   0 downloadsAttached File  Untitled-3.jpg   81.45KB   0 downloads
