Still looking for a production potter, had my latest no show for work today... Wondering why so many people love clay, but don't seem to like working with it professionally?

    With that work ethic? I bet they're still working at Round Table.

    What Mark says is so true, we've started working with local schools. I met with the head of the ceramics program at a local university yesterday. We're forming an intern partnership. It will take years to bear good fruit, but I'm thinking its the only long term solution.

    Whenever people ask ne for advice on getting started, I say, take a couple classes and then apprentice for a local potter. So valuable and benefits everyone.

I have to re-throw a series of spoon rests for a housing development this morning. I threw them in white stoneware, turned my head to look at this mug on the shelf. It was the mug the customer pointed at for glaze selection. How did I get that irony green rim? Duh! Hazelnut brown clay... 24 hazelnut brown spoon rests coming up!

    And now you have back stock. You happy with Hazelnut vs 266?

    I like them both... The hazelnut is 211, a bit darker than 112 and no specs. 266 is almost black, very reactive. We us 266 for flower pots. The 211 we're doing a line of "Farm House" dinnerware. With a Tin Ox glaze. These were sort of freaks. This guy walked in and saw this mug that was left out and loved it because the colors matched their corporate colors perfectly. So, Elizabeth sold the glaze-which is exactly what she was suppose to do. No biggie, I have the almost all done no...

    I did buy a head mount and a clamp on mount. I filmed with the cameron on my forehead and clamped onto the basin of my wheel. I plan to splice the two together into one video.

    I LOVE snow! Wish we had been the ones to get what you got, Mike. I'd gladly take that over the MUD we now have. I miss our clean white woodland snowfall. :(
