Wichita still has a the same boot shops you got yours from we also have a custom hatter.   We have been redeveloping downtown in the older area and it has a lot of nightlife and nice hotels since NCECA was held here in the early 80's  We get a lot of feed back that groups enjoy the atmosphere and people here when the come for a conventions here.       Denice

You can reapply glaze to the areas that are thin by heating them up first in an oven.  If it's really thin it might be hard to get enough glaze on it to make a difference.  Sometimes reglazing works other times not but it doesn't hurt to try.  Make sure you wash them with soap and water before heating them up, any oil from handling them left on the pot will make a difference on how it reglazes.     Denice

Ray that's the way I was taught to do handles in the 70's, I would prepull the handle, get it close to the right size and length attach it to the cup and finish pulling it.  I always added a coil of clay at the lower attachment point, it just takes practice.    Denice

Larry that is a slick job, we were getting ready to build our own system when we got a call about a local potter that had cancer.  She had recently bought some new equipment and was selling it, I paid 200 for the envirovent new in the box.  It wasn't the bargain of the year but I thought it would help her out financially.  Denice
