Selling and making decent money at a show.

Teaching a class, imparting knowledge, having a student center pull a good cylinder...having more than one student do the same.... I felt like a proud parent

Pugmill.....has released me from the potters law of conservation. (Firing/ keeping) mediocre pots. And making amazing clay bodies.

Drinking lots of tea... Starting to understand tea...
