Last time I heard about Rovin... was in the 60's I think. They are still around, huh. And Mat and Dave I never heard about.... small place?

Oh boy, now your in trouble ^_^

 

Matt from Matt and Dave's clay is Matt Katz, who moderated clay and glaze technical before you. They’ve only been around a few years, still working on expanding I presume.

Rovin opened in 1957 and is on its third set of owners. They've stayed fairly local.

 

I think they went out of business, unfortunately.    http://www.mattanddavesclays.com/

Tyvek is good (the stuff priority mail envelopes are made of).  Easy to cut, waterproof.

Just curious, if it's buried in the soil, who would see the glazing?
