You can recycle your real clay....use it over and over.  There are lots of discussions on the forum about recycling clay.  Check it out.  When you search the forum, make sure to start form the main menu, not while you are in a topic.

I love my whisper.  There's been tons written about this subject on the forums, so you ought to do a search and check it out.  Make sure you search from the main screen, not within a topic.

In Topic: Can You Be Cheaper Than This?

This thread is veering off a little, so let me help with that.

I was forever losing my bits of chamois that I use to smooth rims since they are the same color as the clay slop.  I tried attaching fishing bobbers but that didn't seem to work either.  I recently found a type of chamois that is bright blue.  Haven't lost a strip so far but it's too early to tell.

In Topic: Qotw: As A Discerning Potter, When And Why Do You Buy Handmade Pottery?

Like others have said, I buy pieces from potters I know.  But before I knew anything about ceramics, ever since I earned my own money, I was buying handmade mugs.  That habit continues until today and it is in part the act of fondling a display of wonderful mugs and finding the one that is just perfect in my hand that entices me.  It is for that reason that I make all my mugs slightly different, so everyone can find the perfect fit.

So JoAnn, the mug he eventually was able to make probably cost him hundreds of dollars, but then how can you put a price on passion...
