Love your post John, but disagree about the need for $$$$$$$ money. This could be a simpler grass roots effort.
I think we should hitch on to the "Buy Local" trend right now while it is growing in the public mind. Locally produced, human made pots are a perfect fit for it.
Serve that locally grown food on a locally made plate.
The people who can afford to buy fresh, local produce are the same economic group who can afford to buy a real pot.
I'm thinking large and small package stickers, bumper stickers, t-shirts with a unified slogan ... It can be as simple as BUY LOCAL POTTERY.
Yes, it is something ACerS & Potters Council might be able to do but I would like to hear from our Members ... would you buy and use these stickers and tees?

The awesome part is that your sons allowed you to do a cast of them after seeing how good you were at it. A trusting duo.

Hi Kabe! I don't think you sound dumb, even if you did, we all sound dumb sometimes. Thanks for asking.
A "pottery difference reducer" is a device which somehow reduces the difference between the pot you see in your head, and the one that actually comes out of your kiln.
They are also sold under the name "expectation reducer," or "reality checks."
From what I understand, they also sell similar devices for painters, sculptors, dancers, actors, writers, or anyone involved in a creative activity.
The only problem is, I don't know who makes them, or where you can buy one.
I know if they were sold at "Road Runner Supply" they would be called "The ACME Pottery Difference Reducer."
Does anyone know who makes them, or where I can get one?
