If all else fails, offer to buy things around their house when you visit. : > )


Or, just buy their house when they are on vacation...

I was tempted to answer with "Ann",but I thought someone would beat me to the sarcasm. As far as ceramics, I don't call myself anything, don't do enough to have a title.


In truth, I wasn't trying to be sarcastic... I have just given up on titles. At Potter's Fire we purposely assign weird titles to people like "Clay Boss", "Customer Experience Tsar", and "Chief Everything Officer". It's our way of saying, "Don't take yourself too seriously..." I may promote one of my folks to "Chief Cat Herder", cause getting the studio team to turn in their time sheets is like herding cats. I knew a lady who had the title "Dot Connector", loved that one!

I do a section of pottery that few people bother with and I would really like to get what I know down somewhere for future reference.
I don't think taking a year to write a book is about to happen, but I love the option of video teaching. Not a taped session, but like Antoinette, a live inter active program. Trouble is you have to have someone who knows the technical side of live streaming, the equipment to light and shoot it and the place to do it from. Daunting!

Here's an interesting idea for video teaching that is both live and interactive.... Simon Leach offers live Skype consulting and training by the hour. Doesn't have to leave his studio. I believe he's charging $60.00 / Hour. If you go to his home page and scroll down a bit you can see links and gift card purchases for Skype training with Simon Leach...




I have to say, something like this would work very well for our team as we could pull a large IMac from the office to the studio and pick up all of the wheel stations on the transmission. Bandwidth would be the key...
