In Topic: What Do You Get Out Of This Forum Interaction?

Today, 10:27 AM

When this forum began we were not at all sure of what would happen. We had all been exposed to the flames and personal rants on many other Internet forums so wondered if we could succeed with " opinions exchanged with courtesy". Some thought it would be bland and boring ... They thought flaming fights and hurt feelings were somehow part of the package.

Thanks to all of us here ... 'They' were wrong.

It would be great if their use could be legitimized for the non production potter. ( I say that since they are usually too costly if you are going through tons of clay. ) So many potters apologize for using these glazes ... a product that works perfectly for their purposes, engineered by folks who know what they are doing.
I think there is still a bit of ... Eh, Whatever you want to call it ... Around what you make.
