Will The Eye Of The Epa Look Further At "art" Makers And What We Use?

15 May 2016 - 11:22 AM

Interesting article.  Worth a read.  Has some potential resonance for those of us who produce a lot of work. 

 

http://www.oregonliv...e_review_o.html

 

Years ago, here in NH, the FDA got a complaint from a single private individual about the use of lead in glazes on some handcrafted pottery made in the state.  VERY long story short... every NH Potters Guild member was investigated by the FDA ... and had to submit signed affidavits of disclosed production/sales levels by types of forms, and all of our glaze recipes.

 

Another one here in NH from 'the archives'..... EPA got called about a salt kiln by a neighbor.  Owner told them to basically "bug off".  Long story short again........ 'witch hunt' for salt kilns ensued.  Which is why there are almost no salt kilns in NH today.

 

We all need to watch this kind of stuff and do what we can to mitigate both the real impacts of what we do... and ALSO quite importantly the perceived impact with the public.

 

best,
