My glaze area is long & narrow lined with mats that really help as I walk back &a forth from glaze buckets to sink. They are a foot & back saver.

I used to subscribe to CM, Clay Times & Pottery Making Illustrated, but stopped all of them. We have a wonderful bookstore that carries all publications so I purchase whatever one I like best when I need inspiration.
It's funny when you've tried all the methods you admired most & settle on your own style, & then keep seeing the old methods coming back as new ones. Guess I've been around a long time.

In Topic: Qotw: Would You Laugh At Me If I Told You That I Am Using A Gg?

I have had a GG pretty close to when it was available. I use it when I'm making multiple pieces, which is almost all the time & it cuts trimming time. My only problem is trimming lids, the knob is too small to be grabbed by the lugs. I made a chuck that works ok, but it would be nice to not have to remove the GG to trim lids.
