Moorcroft Pottery  Wow!  Thanks so much for sharing PeterH.  This truly makes my heart beat faster...  I do both stained glass and pottery and I do believe I've just found a new direction!  More information about Moorcroft Pottery from start to finish can be found on YouTube at:

Charles Counts' "Pottery Workshop" is available on Amazon.  I bought a copy a couple months ago and highly recommend it.

It has been many years since I've seen an American Legionnaire offering a poppy, but as a child and a young woman our local Penns Grove, New Jersey post did.  Several years ago, while on vacation in Spain, I was asked by a friend who is a Brit, if I knew the significance of the red poppy.  Seeing the sea of red around the Tower is such a statement.  Americans need to be reminded...

If you want to make your own tools from CLAY, Janis Wilson Hughes has two DVD's that tell you how and show you how to use the ribs.  Available on Amazon look for Custom Clay Pottery Tools, part 1 - Making Potter Tools from Clay and Custom Clay Pottery Tools part 2 - Using Custom Tools on the Wheel.  I found the process both enjoyable and informative and use my homemade tools often.  Also, shown in the DVD's are two items I can not live without - the blue work surface (The Mighty Mat) and the diamond hand polisher pad - 400 grit.  Janis Wilson Hughes has many videos on YouTube.  Look for Evolution Stoneware Pottery.
